    Alt. Spelling/AKA 
    • The family surname was spelled both "Edger" and "Edgar" in assorted records and documents. An online researcher believes the name was changed from "Edgar" to "Edger" in the 1840s.

      It seems John Sr. only used the spelling "Edger." This is not the case with all of his sons and their descendants. Researcher Marge Kimble has reported that from those descendants she knew, the name was pronounced as "Edge - er."
    Non-line Spouse 
    • John was first married to Ann Arnison in Alston Moor, England before they immigrated to the United States. They traveled with a Mormon group to Nauvoo, Illinois. When the Mormons moved on to Utah, the Edgers stayed behind along with several other families.

      They were the parents of five sons; George Edger, William Edgar (who married Ann Clarinda Walker), John Edgar, Joseph Edgar, and Thomas Edgar, whose wife Sarah Houseman married Charles Pearsey Walker in 1902 after the death of Thomas in 1888. Thomas and Joseph Edgar were born in Illinois. George, William, and John were born in England.

    • THE ACADEMY IN THE PARK

      New London Academy had its beginning in 1865, when a group of citizens formed a stock company in order to build a private high school or Academy to extend the amount of education possible to New London young people. Names of those subscribing five or more shares to finance the Academy were: S. H. Dover, William Allen, S. R. Nugen, Jaret Nugen, Medad Lyman, John Thompson, Michael Ramsey, P. Frank; John Edger, T. H. Bristor, James, Telfer, A. Lyman, John Borden, James Crawford, Sr., W. D. Wallar, Isaac Keiser, Elias Stephens, and Mrs. Mary Burk.

      The town of New London gave a lease of the public square for use by the Academy for ninety-nine years or so long as the building should be used for high school purposes. This was in violation of the restriction of no buildings in the public square, made when Jonathan King platted the town, but Mrs. King apparently approved the exception. [...]

    Biography  1888  [2
    Portrait and Biographical Album of Henry County, Iowa 
    • John Edger, a farmer and breeder of fine horses, residing on section 8, New London Township, Henry County, Iowa, and a resident of Henry County for forty years, is a native of England, and was born in Cumberland, April 22, 1811. His parents were William and Mary (Wilson) Edger, also natives of Cumberland, England. Our subject was reared on a farm and was apprenticed to the shoemaking trade, at which he worked for ten years. He was married in his native parish, March 1, 1835, to Miss Ann Arnison, daughter of George Arnison, a prominent collier of that country. Mrs. Edger was born in Cumberland. Five children were the result of their union, the three eldest born in England, and the two youngest in America. Mr. Edger emigrated from England to America with his family in 1841, and located in Hancock County, Illinois, where he engaged in farming until the fall of 1847, when he removed to Henry County, Iowa, and entered eighty acres of land in New London Township, and pre-empted another eighty acres. He subsequently bought at private sale, until he now has 290 acres of valuable prairie land. He has carried on farming and stock-raising extensively, and has done much to improve the breed of horses in this region by the introduction of some full-blood Cleveland Bay stock, and some half-blood Clydesdale horses. For the past twenty-five years he has been keeping blooded horses. He has now a very fine specimen of the former stock in his barns, and two had some four-year-old colts of the latter. He was the first to introduce thoroughbred Durham cattle into the township. Mr. Edger is an enthusiastic horseman, and is of the firm opinion that the Cleveland Bay is the best everyday horse for the farmer's use.

      Mr. and Mrs. Edger's children were named respectively: George, William, John, Joseph and Thomas. George was born in Cumberland, England, March 1, 1836, married Mary Spearman, and died September 16, 1862; William, born in Cumberland, June 15, 1838, married Ann Walker, and resides in New London Township; John, also born in Cumberland, October 22, 1840, was a soldier of Company K, 25th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, and died in Jacksonville, Indiana, July 14, 1864, of disease contracted in the army; Joseph, born in Hancock County, Illinois, July 30, 1843, was also a soldier of the late war, serving in Company K, 25th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, was wounded at Vicksburg May 22, 1863, and died four days later of his wounds; Thomas, born October 17, 1846, married Sarah Housen (sic: Houseman), and was accidentally killed by a falling ax, June 23, 1886, leaving a wife and eight children, five boys and three girls; his widow resides on a farm in New London Township.

      Mrs. Edger died January 6, 1880, at the homestead in New London Township. Mr. Edger was again married, in March 1881, to Mrs. Vashti Brewer, a native of Wabash County (sic: Wayne County), Indiana, and a daughter of [Francis] Samuel Walker. She had one child by her former marriage, a daughter, Mary, now the wife of Frank Hand, a resident of Baltimore Township. Mr. and Mrs. Edger are members of the Christian Church. Mr. Edger is a Greenbacker in politics, and has held various local offices. Three times he has been a member of the Board of Trustees of New London Township. His post-office address is Mt. Pleasant.

    The History of New London, Iowa 
    • John Edger was born in England in 1811, came to America in 1841, and to the New London area in 1847. He introduced Cleveland Bay and Clydesdale horses and Durham cattle here. The Edger children were George; William who married Ann Walker; John and Joseph, both of whom died in the Civil War; and Thomas who was killed in an accident, leaving a wife, Sarah Housman (sic: Houseman) Edger, and eight children. One of these children was Charles (1880-1958), whose children included Thelma Keegan, Louise Vaughn, Thaine and Dorman. After his wife's death, John Edger married Vashti Walker Brewer, who had a daughter Mary by her previous marriage; Mary married Frank Hand of Lowell.

      George L. (1874-1948), son of William and Ann Walker Edger, spent his entire life on the farm four miles west of New London on which he was born. Joe Edger (1865-1953) exhibited his sheep at fairs. His wife was Emma Hoopert (1867-1952), and their daughter was Lois Prickett.

      Burr Moscrop (1870-1938) was a nephew of John Edger and came from England in 1887 to live northwest of town. He married Rebecca Edger, and after her death Estella Edger. After the death of the second wife, he returned to England (his ninth trip back) to bring his half-sister, Beatrice Higgin, to keep house for him. Moscrop was a township trustee and operated the road maintainer. The [New London] Journal (February 3, 1938) credited him with operating the first steam-powered road maintainer in the county.

    • 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.

    First Land Owners in New London Township, Henry County, Iowa
    This list was published The History of New London, Iowa, by Margaret "Ruth" (DeLong) Peterson (published by The New London Journal on the occasion of the paper's centennial in 1975, Duane Griggs, editor; New London, Henry County, Iowa: composed and printed by The Hawk Eye; Burlington, Des Moines County, Iowa). Ruth wrote the following information about her source of the material:

    In the New London Journal of Speptember 19, 1935, there appeared a list of the first purchasers of land in New London Township, furnished by George Van Allen, at the request of the Journal’s editor, Ed Wessel. These records are still available at the [Henry County, Iowa] courthouse, written in the old books in a fine penmanship. Date of filing the ownership is 1840 unless otherwise indicated. It will be noted that land around New London and to the west and south was taken first, with much of the prairie land to the north remaining until the late 1840’s.

    The following names that appeared in the list are in this database: William Anderson, David Brown, Jacob Burge, Ebenezer Dickey, Samuel Dickey, John Edgar (John Edger), Nathaniel Fox, William Hail (William Hale), William Hardin, Jackson King (Jonathan Jackson King), John King (Jonathan Jackson King), Frederick Lee, Hezekiah Lee, Jeremiah Lee, John Lee, Jacob Prickett, Isaac J.
