Here is a section from a book entitled "A Reminiscent History of Northern West Va" published in 1895....according to a paper in one of my uncle's binders:
"Rev. William N. Edgell----was born in Wetzel County, Virginia, in 1846, the son of Rev. James and Mary (Cain) Edgell, who were born in Greene Co., Pa, about 1820, and in what is now Taylor County, W.Va., in 1826, respectively. They were married in Doddridge Co. and soon after located in Wetzel Co, where they still live, the father being now a superannuated minister of the Methodist church. At the opening of the Civil War---------. His father, William Edgell, came from Penn. to Wetzel County, settled on a woodland farm, became a noted hunter, and died when the subject of this sketch was an infant. His wife, Sarah (Barker) Wetzell, also died here. She was the mother of 12 childen. The maternal grandparents of Rev. Wm. N. Edgell, Thomas and Anna (Pride) Cain, were originally from Taylor County, Virginia, but eventually passed from life in Doddridge County, the father ceasing to live in 1863."
I also have a document entitled "Ancestry-Family-And Life of William N. Edgell" by Wm. N. Edgell. These documents were all compiled, as I said, by my uncle Ken Reese, and he was very fastidious in documentation. I used to have a lot of information on my computer, unfortunately after a couple of hard drive crashes I no longer have it on desktop, but it is all on CDs waiting for me to reload it lol! If you would like I could try to copy the Ancestry Family and Life document and scan it to you or snail mail it.
Hope this helps!
