Surnames: Edwards, Basden, Whaley, Boan
I am related to your husband and am a descendant of Henry Edwards and Nancy Basden. My grandmother was Addie Whaley Basden. At family reunions with the Whaley family, it was said that our family is part Native as Addie's Mom was Indian. I too have noticed the listing of Edwards as White and as Mulatto. An interesting story, when my Mom was young, she said her mother told her that her ancestors were not really Basdens, but Boans. IF you look at the early census data, you will see that the Edwards and the Boans lived close together and the Boans were mulatto. I suppose the only way to be sure would be DNA. At any rate, I would be interested in finding out what you know.
