Just came across your 2003 post while researching Hilliard W. "Buddy" Edwards, b. 1924/25 d. 2004. I believe his mother was Alma, his father Hilliard Edwards. Alma was born around 1898. Buddy was supposedly the first baby born in his south Florida town. His grandfather was supposedly a sea captain. Buddy was the only child by Alma and he has only one son. Buddy was a pilot in WWII.
Do you have any information that corresponds to mine?
