Date of Birth

In his 1972 autobiography ( page 13 ), Edwards claimed he “was born Charles Murray on June 14, 1933, in Akron, Ohio.”

But on “To Tell The Truth” ( October 1972 ), even while advertising his autobiography, he claims when answering his first question that he was born an “illegitimate child”.

However, NCIC records show a date of birth of May 30, 1928 for his first two arrests where his fingerprint pattern was recorded:

and Edwards’ 1956 Montana Deer Lodge Prison records list one of four aliases as “Charles Edward Meyers” :

His mother’s name was Lillian Cecelia Myers.

In addition, starting around 1950, Edwards produced fake credentials enabling him to get married under an invented name (see relations), and have multiple SSNs under false names as described in his 1993 letter to the FBI . His wife also told John Cameron “He had books and devices for making fake credentials.”

Edwards told Margot Burns that “Murray” stood for “Murrey” which meant a “stain” in heraldry.

Conclusion

Edwards was likely born Charles Edward Myers, on May 30, 1928 and certainly not Charles Murray on June 14, 1933.
