    Religion:
    • John Edger and his family with his first wife, Ann Arnison, immigrated from England to Nauvoo, Illinois, and were Mormons. They apparently left the Mormon church upon settling in Henry County, Iowa, or soon thereafter.

      John's son William Edgar, and his wife Ann Clarinda Walker, who was a sister of Vashti (Walker/Brewer) Edger, and their children were members of the Seventh Day Adventists Church.

      John Edger's biography written in 1888 listed he and Vashti as members of the Christian Church, to which some of the other Walker family members also belonged.

      By the time of the 1925 Iowa State Census, Vashti's religion on the census form stated she was a Seventh Day Adventist.
