From Mar 1867 to Mar 1869, Edwards missed 125 of 210 roll call votes, which is 59.5%. This is much worse than the median of 26.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Mar 1869. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
