The lineage you mention is largely correct.Horace Edgerton (1795 - 1855), was the son of Isaac Edgerton (~1767 - 1848) and Sarah ---- (~1767 - 1851).Horace was married to Betsey Taylor, daughter of Obadiah and Abigail (Williams) Taylor, by whom he reportedly had eight children:Freedom, Amos, Amasa, Polly Jane, Esther A., Franklin and Sarah.The children are all supposed to have been born in Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania.Following the death of his wife, Horace removed with his father-in-law to Center Township in Lake County (then LaPorte Co.), Indiana.Polly Jane Edgerton was born circa 1831 in Pennsylvania (per the 1850 Federal Census); she was married in Lake County, Indiana on August 24, 1850 to Moses Davis.Most of the children of Horace Edgerton resided in Lake County, Indiana -- in Center Twp., Cedar Creek Twp., and West Creek Twp.
Horace's father, Isaac Edgerton, was born in Simsbury, Hartford County, Connecticut circa 1767, one of the younger sons of Jonathan and Freedom (Buell) Edgerton.Upon his maturity, Isaac settled first in Torringford, Litchfield County, Connecticut, where he was listed as a head of household in the 1800 Federal Census as "Isaac Adjutant".Shortly after the turn of the century, Isaac removed to Florence, Oneida County, New York, where he resided for about thirty-five years.Late in life, he and his wife went to Palatine, Cook County, Illinois where two of their sons (Zebina and Lorin) had previously settled.Both Isaac and Sarah died there and are buried along with other family members at the Cady Cemetery in Palatine.
Isaac Edgerton's ancestry goes back to the immigrant, Richard Edgerton, of Saybrook and Norwich, Connecticut.I'd be happy to provide you with more detailed information on this pedigree if you are interested.I would also be very interested in any more information you can provide on this family.(eg. the family genealogy you mentioned?)Please drop me a line at:
