Alanson R. Edgerton, son of Daniel and Elizabeth (Fargo) Edgerton.

 

born:

February 27, 1803; Wallingford, Rutland Co., VT.  (FG1) (FG4)

died:

April 30, 1813; Wallingford, Rutland Co., VT.  (GI – sic “1803”)

buried:

Green Hill Cemetery; Wallingford, Rutland Co., VT.  (GI)

 


Family records state that Alanson R. Edgerton was born February 27, 1803 and died April 30, 1813 (Edgerton Family Genealogy, Ida Ferry Welch, et. al. (comp.); Sept. 1964; pg.12), however this conflicts with the inscription on Alanson’s gravestone, that is “Alanson R. / son of / Danel & Betsey / Edgerton died Apr. / 30, 1803 aged / 8 years”.  Ms. Welch states that the gravestone inscription is thought to be an error.  This would agree with the 1810 Federal Census enumeration of Daniel Edgerton’s houshold, which indicates that Daniel had three sons under the age of ten still living.
