States: Pennsylvania: Columbia
Looking for information on James or John Edgar of Orange Township, Columbia County in the 1850 census. My ancestor is Sophia Edgar, b. @ 1803, married Lewis Haney of Carbon County PA before 1813, information from burial records of Rev. Bauer at Lehigh County Historical Society states she died in 1851, personal information is written in old German but clearly states, EDGAR, presumed maiden name, "im Columbia County". A James Edgar is listed in Orange Twp. in the 1850 census as well as a John Edgar, both with fairly large families. Given names of family members at house number 174 are: James, age 43; Sarah, 40; Daniel, 20; Robert, 18; Emanuel, 26; Franklin, 14; George, 12; William, 10; Hiram, 8; Thomas, 4; and James, 2. John Edgar's household is comprised of; John B., 43; Elizabeth, 39; Mary S., 12; Elmira, 10; John C., 5; and Warren B., 2.
Any information on these families would be much appreciated.
