I have heard that my grandfather was mayor of Edgewater "sometime" between 1900-1925. However, either I'm not looking in the right places (i.e.local history of edgewater fl, volusia county library archives, city of edgewater) but cannot find the name of John Jacob FRANCIS. Has anyone heard of him or know another source I might check? Thanks in advance for your help.

Edgewater at that time was known as Hawk's Park. (Hawke's ?)

Thanks for the reply. I heard back from the Edgewater Historian about it being called Hawke's Park at the time. However, she hasn't had time to get back to me about whether he was mayor. I could be wrong about the dates, since I got the information from my mother and she can't remember a lot any longer. I will check out the link you included and see what I can find out.
