Edgar J Esmay was my grandfather. He was in Sabula, IAJan 28, 1880. All I know is his mother was Rhoda Cottral. He was married twice once to Laura Dean on Sept 24, 1908 she passed away in 1912- they had one son.He then married my Grandmother Julia McCleda Mulligan, who was the daughter of Ida Eichenlaub. They had two children, Betty Jean Esmay (bd 10-21-23) and Martin James Esmay.
I would love to hear from anyone about the family history.
