I know my line back to Thomas Wedge, born in England ~1640, who came to America and married Deborah Stevens. I come from the Wedges that were early settlers in Wisconsin (Wedge's Prarie/Waupun) and Minnesota (Albert Lea). My parents were born in Albert Lea, and moved to California ~1956.
I am Scott William Wedge (b. 1961), son of Ralph William Wedge (b. 1938), son of Ralph Franklin Wedge (b. 1894), son of Clarence Wedge (b. ~1855), son of Lucious Precious Wedge (b. 1823), son of Salmon (Samuel) Wedge (b. 1773), son of Asahel Wedge (b. 1745/46), son of John Wedge (b. 1715/16), son of Isaac Wedge (b. 1672), son of Thomas Wedge (b. ~1640), son of Thomas Wedge (b. ???)
My parents don't recall any particular family reason for my first name, although, by strange coincidence, my wife's name is Lydia!
