Erin Edgar Stottle
John and Mary Edgar
My name is Erin Edgar Stottle and my 2nd grandfather was John Edgar born 1819 in Ireland (we believe County Down), emigrated to the USA in 1842 with his wife Mary. The made landfall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a son, William, that was either newborn when they left Ireland or was born at sea. I was curious if you would happen to be familiar with any of these names or would be able to point me in the right direction. My dad has been looking for his great-grandfather's father since 1958, this past Jan 18, he passed away at age 90. I am carrying on his 'torch'.
Any help you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated.

Pvt William McNally (# 93573829)
Hi Richard,
I wonder if you know anything more about William McNally. There is a W. McNally listed on the WWII panel of the Huyton Cenotaph. This could be the same person. If you think it is, please let me know and I will add pictures of the Cenotaph to his page.
Many Regards, Andrew

Hi Richard,

I was just on and received a hint/link to a photo you took of my great uncles grave at Etaples in France. I put that laminated portrait there in June 2012 so donít know when you took the photo or even if the portrait is still there these days. But thank you so much for uploading the photo! Cyril was one of four brothers, three of them died in the great war.

Again, many thanks for taking the time to upload the photo of his headstone.

Best Regards, Tina

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.
Thank you,
