A news reporter on checking at Ihe office of City Assessor Gorman today found that there is a Ninian Edwards subdivision of Godfrey * Gilman's addition in the downtown westend area: another Ninian Edward" addition in Upper Alton; and a B. F. Edwards addition In upner Middle!own. Ninian Edwards was the territorial governor arrrt later stale governor of Illinois for whom Ed- wnrdsville was named before Illinois became a state. Dr. B. F.
