|Martha Mace||William Edgar from County Down|
I am a decendent of Captain John Edgar born in Ballykine, Northern Ireland. I do believe his father is John Edgar from Glasgo,Scotland. Captain John Edgar was a commander of a vessel with the British Navy on a vessel for the King of England, I think in Mid 1700's. He came to Detroit, PA and Illinois where he died in the USA. He was known as General John Edgar after he traveled from Ireland to Illinois. They named a county in Illinois after him. Edgar County, Paris, Illinois, USA. This is my GGGGG Grandfather and searching for information to connect us...well besides the Edgar Geneology book that my Mother made years back as she was a geneologist.
This is what I've found on my end from me to mother, etc.

I see that you have added some photos to some memorials at this cemetery. If you are ever in the area, I wonder if you would photograph the Watt family stones at that cemetery. Hugh and Mary Watt are my husband's ancestors and we would love to know if they have stones.
