The Biographical and Historical Record of Wayne and Appanoose Counties Iowa Originally published 1886

John B. EDGMAND, of Wayne County, residing on section 2, Grand River Township, where he is engaged in farming, is a native of Wayne County, Kentucky, born September 13, 1826, a son of Thomas K. Edgmand, who was a native of East Tennessee. Our subject was reared on a farm, his father being a farmer by occupation, and his education was received in the primitive log-cabin schools of his neighborhood.

He left his native State in March, 1849, coming West to Missouri, and in October of the same year he settled in Wayne County, Iowa. Before beginning to work for himself he made a home for his widowed mother in Jefferson Township, Wayne County, after which he settled on his present farm, on which he had worked for some time prior to his settlement.

Mr. Edgmand was one of the earliest settlers of Wayne County, coming here when everything was in a wild state, and here he experienced all the hardships and privations incident to the life of a pioneer. His nearest mill was at Trenton, Missouri, a distance of fifty miles, and his trading in those early days was done at Keokuk and Brunswick, the former place 140 and the latter place 125 miles distant.

Mr. Edgmand was married March 22, 1857, to Anna J. Hayes, daughter of Joseph Hayes, of Jefferson Township. They have had ten children, of whom seven are living -- Joseph T., Thomas K., Nancy A., Robert J., Rettie S., Ini J. and Eva M. In connection with his farming Mr. Edgmand devotes some attention to stock-raising.

He has been successful through life, and now owns 485 acres of choice land. He was the first school treasurer of Grand River and Jefferson townships when both were in one district, and has served as school director. He has been trustee of his township for twenty years, and has also served as road supervisor. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity.
