Your post is old but you may still take a look now and then. I have recently found an Edgar Sylvester Pedigo in my cousin's family tree. Pedigo managed a departmant store according to his passport application in 1928. I may be off a few years here but it was about that time period. He was in his fifties, was marrying for the first time to a Delle Floyd 37, of Bluefield West Virginia. In the census she is a clerk in a department store. A little romantic story here maybe. They married in March and left for an extended trip to Europe in early May of that year. If you are connected in any way to this family and would like other information I have, please let me know. There are pictures involved.
