From "History of Fremont County, Iowa," copyright date 1881:

EDGERTON, SAMUEL, farmer and stock raiser, section 4, P. O. Riverton; is a native of Logan county, Ohio, and was born February 24, 1825. He moved with his parents while yet young to Wayne county, Indiana, where he grew to manhood. His youth was passed in working on a farm. He was educated in a school conducted under the auspices of the society of Friends. When 16 years old he went to Grant county, Indiana, and lived there until 1852, when he came to Iowa and located in this immediate vicinity. Was married January 25, 1844, to Miss Minnie [sic. Winnie] Lytle, a native of North Carolina. They have had nine children: Thomas, William, Richard, Francis, Mary A., Erastus, Elmer, Samuel, Winnie E., John A. and Daniel, the latter two being deceased. He enlisted in company E., 29th Iowa volunteer infantry, at Sidney in August, 1862. Was in all the battles in which his regiment participated except that of Saline. He ranked as a corporal for two years. He was sick for some time, and finally after more than two years service, was discharged at New Orleans, and mustered out at Davenport. He owns 120 acres of land, well improved. Mr. Edgerton is one of the pioneers of this county, and is respected by the people as a worthy citizen and christian gentleman.
