Credits and Acknowledgments

 

 

The information included in this database is the product of many years of work by numerous genealogists and family historians, and we in no way wish to take credit for the hard work of fellow Edgerton researchers.  Rather, this project is intended as a growing compilation of the Richard Edgerton family, which will hopefully grow as time passes.
