Dear Denise, There is quite an extensive background on this part of the family, (The Iowa Branch)in the Tee~ Book. I will start with Edgar's father:
Thomas Jefferson Teegarden b. 3-19-1850 in Greene Co., Pa. (or Col. Co., O.) m. 1-30-1873 to Nancy Elizabeth Teater d. 1923 both buried in Corydon, Iowa.
For many years, Thomas was Sheriff and then County Commissioner of Wayne County, Iowa.
Their Children of the 7th generation are: -Flora b.1874 -Blanche b.1-6-1876 - m. to George Sollenberger, M.D., they had Floris and Eugene Sollenberger. -Roy L. b.1877 -Arthur b.1880 -Grace b.1884 -Otis b.12-24-1885 unm. -Edith Orpha b.3-11-1888 m.5-4-1910 to Walter Cooley -Gladys Ruth b.8-19-1891 m.8-12-1912 to Roy Buckworth

The 1904-05 Pacific Coast Business Directory lists Thomas Edgar with an office in the Bradbury Building in Los Angeles. He was associated with the Boys' Industrial School, Waterman, California.
