I have just received my brother's Y-DNA and am looking for family. The earliest Edgar I am aware of is Benjamin William Edgar who came to the US from Ireland about 1820 or so. His wife's name is Elizabeth. They settled in Norfolk, St. Lawrence Co, NY
My great grandmother was born Ella Bell Edger. Her parents William b. 1814 and Amanda Edger. According to the census, Williams parents came to America from Ireland. They lived in Grant County KY. Not much luck tracing William's Family line to Ireland or brothers and sisters.

I descend from George Edgar m. Elizabeth, who likely came down the mountains from Orange Co. VA to Augusta Co. to finally end in Bedford Co. VA, where his will, dated in 1765 names his son and my relative, James Edgar, as his exer. James married 1) Mary Mason and 2) Pheby Wright. He had 10 children. If you are of this line or interested in this family, please contact me. Thank you. For ladies, I did put James Edgar as a DAR Patriot.

My Edgars are from Detroit, Mich. Thomas Henry Edgar, Anne Edgar, and I think Thomas had a Brother William C. Edgar and came on same boat from England - Landcastershire. William maybe Thomas's father and his mother maybe Janet Maculey. I also have reason to think his line has a Janet MacArthor.
