Hi Sharlene, I haven't forgotten about your Edgar family in Washington Co., PA, and I am currently working on all the Edgar families in Washington Co., PA sorting them out and looking for additional documentation on these Edgar families. I will be in touch with you in a few weeks with the new info that I have found. And we now have another Edgar researcher with possible ties to Judge James Edgar, long story and a work in progress, who just recently submitted a DNA test so we are waiting for results. To me it appears that there are 3 different Edgar families in Wash.Co in the late 1700's: Adam Edgar of County Down, this is my family; Robert Edgar of Ireland, this looks to be your family, and the Judge James Edgar family, he was born York Co., PA and his father could be William Edgar born ? and a brother Adam Edgar that went on to South Carolina, the Judge did not have any sons, only 2 daughters and 1 nephew James Edgar born SC that lived with the Judge.
The fast answer to your question is yes, John Edgar that married Ellen Kirk in Defiance OH, is part of the Robert Edgar family of Wash. Co. PA, and William Edgar is his suspect father. I believe your distant cousin, David Edgar, is connected to this line, a DNA test would certainly help. So we will work on this together, I promise, I will include you in my research with other Edgar researchers, very soon. If you have a specific question, email me at onsims@aol.com. Sharon
