      162 (a) EDWARD COLSTON, b. near Winchester, Virginia., Dec. 25, 1786; d. at "Honeywood, Berkeley County, Virginia., April 23d, 1851, = 1st, May, 1814, JANE MARSHALL, b. in Warrenton, Virginia., August 28, 1794, d. at Honeywood, childless, March, 1815, = 2d, May 2, 1825, SARAH JANE BROCKENBROUGH, b. 1805, yet living with her sons at Martinsburg, W. Va. At the time of Edward's birth, Rawleigh Colston was living at "Hill and Dale," near Winchester, Virginia. In 1801 the family removed to "Honeywood," in Berkely County, and built a fine mansion overlooking the Potomac river. Here Edward was raised in the midst of affluence, with one of the noblest of women for a mother. At Honeywood Edward lived and died. Having graduated with honor at Princeton College in 1806, he prepared himself for business and usefulness, by studying law. He was a Federalist by birth, education and conviction, and as such, was elected, in 1821, to the Virginia House of Delegates, and in 1817 was elected to Congress. There he found among his comrades, Henry Clay, W. H. Harrison, Henry Baldwin, John Floyd, R. M. Johnson, Geo. Tucker, and other honored names; yet Mr. Colston was able to take an active and highly influential part in the debates on the important questions before them. Upon the expiration of his term in Congress, Mr. Colston found it necessary to give his personal attention and counsel to his aged mother; and, as her agent, took charge of large estates situated in Virginia and Kentucky. But in 1826 and 1827, 1833 and 1834 he was again in the House of Delegates. While in Richmond, he was married to Miss Sarah Jane Brockenbrough, who is the mother of all his children
