    Henry Yanney's Black Horse Tavern
    Henry Yanney's Black Horse Tavern
    Building in 1795 by Henry Yanney, it became a popular local inn as it was located on the road between the Mohawk valley and Johnstown.

    It was the location of a Edwards-Yauney family reunion that took place 100 years after John and Margaret's marriage. The newspaper articles about the reunion also list this as the location of where Margaret Yauney and John Edwards were married - however, this is not believed to be true, as the First Presbyterian Church in Johnstown has the official marriage records.

    Documents
    1820 US Census: Johnstown, Montgomery County, New York
    1820 US Census: Johnstown, Montgomery County, New York
    including...

    John Edwards, wife, and family
    1840 US Census: Fulton County, New York
    1840 US Census: Fulton County, New York
    The town is not identified, but I am guessing that's its Ephratah, NY based on the Getman and Yauney families also listed.


    NOTES from Brian Abeling: Yes, I believe this is a John Edwards that lives in Ephratah,NY in 1840 - but I do not believe it is the John Y Edwards, son, or his father Congressman John Edwards. His father is ruled out because he should have been listed as being much older than 20 to 30 yrs. In addition, he did not have any children born in the late 1830's as this suggests.

    As for the son John Y Edwards, this record is also unlikely to be him, as he would have been older than 20-30 at this time. In addition, there is a 1840 census records for John Y Edwards in St Johnsville that matches up with the proper children and ages in his family.
    includes...
    John Edwards (assuming that he's the oldest male in the family, he would have been between 50 and 60 years old)

    also includes..
    males under 5: 1
    males 10 to 15: 1
    males 15 to 20: 2
    males 20 to 30: 1
