      Before moving to Kentucky, John became known for his pro-slavery beliefs. Also before moving to Kentucky there were business transactions between John Edwards and several of his brothers-in--law. The records of Prince William County, Virginia contain the following:

      "Know all men by these presents that I Richard Wroe and Benjamin Wroe of Prince William County have bargained and sold unto John Edwards of Lincoln County (Kentucky), our rights, titles to a negro girl named Roseland, by the last will of our father , to the children return to us with the following executors, William Wroe and Thomas Wroe. We see and convey our rights of the value of 25 pounds received and vest him the said John Edwards, with the power and authority we have to manage and direct the said negro and as our brother, William Wroe, is deceased it is not known whether there is three or four parts to the said negro girl, if only three then said Edwards is to make up our portion over and above half, as witness our hands and seal this 3rd day of December 1783. Richard Wroe and Benjamin Wroe. "

      Test. Carty Wells and William Wroe at a Court held for Prince William County this 1st day of March 1784. This Bill of Sale from Richard Wroe and Benjamin Wroe to John Edwards was proved by the Oathes of the Witnesses and ordered to be recorded.
