Edwin Gordon was born in 21 Oct 1811 at Baltimore, MD, the son of John Gordon & Elizabeth Stansbury and married Martha Ann Reynolds on November 21, 1833. Edwin died on 22 January 1892 in Adams County, Illinois.

Mr. Gordon went from Maryland to NY in 1827 and lived there eleven years; lived for short periods in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Cincinnati, Ohio, then moved to Pulaski neighborhood in 1840, having only $100 in his pocket upon his arrival here with his family. In 1842 he put up a double log cabin and lived in it until 1857, when he built, near the same site, the brick residence where he now resides (this brick house stands about a half mile south of the present Robert Robison place, which is a short distance east of the Pulaski schoolhouse. The Robison place was formerly owned by Ebenezer Hoyt, Sr. and later by his son, Joseph S. Hoyt. Mr. Edwin Gordon, Sr. died at his farm home in 1892, and Mrs., Gordon died in 1904 at the home in Augusta of her daughter, Mrs. Rodman Foster-R.W.C.
