 John Edwards/Jonathan Edwards

Okay you all, I'm just throwing this out there...but is Senator and Vice President Candidate John Edwards a decendant of the minister Jonathan Edwards?

Quote:
There is a record of a great American man of God, Jonathan Edwards. He lived at the same time as Max Jukes, but he married a godly girl. An investigation was made of 1,394 known descendants of Jonathan Edwards of which 13 became college presidents, 65 college professors, 3 United States senators, 30 judges, 100 lawyers, 60 physicians, 75 army and navy officers, 100 preachers and missionaries, 60 authors of prominence, one a vice-president of the United States, 80 became public officials in other capacities, 295 college graduates, among whom were governors of states and ministers to foreign countries. His descendants did not cost the state a single penny. 'The memory of the just is blessed' (Prov. 10:7)."


-Leonard Ravenhill


Just a question I was wonderin'.

I sincerly doubt that. I have heard of a fellow who is a decendent and is in the ministry but I forget his name or website.
