I am new to this list and my father left me a large
genealogy file on the
Edgar family put together by Marland M. Edgar..who wrote to
Florence Edgar and sent her a lot of genealogy information
from Robert Edgar (age 80) in 1892 to a granddaughter
describing the original
Edgar genealogy from Scotland in the Parish of Keir
He ( Robert Edgar 1814-1904) came to the township of West
Canada in 1845, in 1864 he went to Schuyler Nebraska and
died there in 1904.
Robert Edgar names his brothers and sisters in order so I
will start there
if anybody sees a connection email and I will try to sort
out the information
I wish there was a connection to my Edgars, but no luck
unfortunately. This is
the line I am researching:

I think the Robert Edgar mentioned as son to James Edgar and
might have emigrated to Toronto Canada and later was part of
the Ontario Govt -
Minister of Labor, abt 1914. However, haven't confirmed
this as yet.
Unfortunately, I haven't found any information further back
than James Edgar. If
anyone thinks they have a connection, I'd like to share
