  • Notes 
    • Edward Edwards was born 10/17/1856 in Ontario, Canada, the son of Henry Edwards and Jane Sproul Edwards. His death certificate lists his birth as 10/19/1866, but his age as 75 yrs, 10 mo, 29 days and since he died on 9/18/1932, it is likely that the 1866 and the date of the 19th is a typographical error. Also, he listed his age as 23 during the 1880 Census, further confirming his birth year to be 1856.

      In the 1870 U.S. Census, Edward lived in the town of Hamburg in Erie County, New York with his parents and his sister, Elizabeth (11 yrs), and younger brother Charles (8). The census reports that he, his siblings, and both parents were born in Canada. Edward was 13.
      Edward married Agnes M. Jardine in 1878 in Canada. Edward and Agnes first lived on a farm near Batavia, New York (while living with his parents). From there they moved to Washington, D.C.; then Sioux City, Iowa; Jasper, Minnesota; Tracy Minnesota; then back to Sioux City, Iowa where they lived the rest of their lives.

      In the 1880 U.S. Census taken in Orangeville, Wyoming County, New York*, Edward stated his occupation as farmer.Edward and his wife Agnes were living with his parents, Henry and Jane, and his younger brother, Charles at the time of the census. Edward and Agnes' oldest child, Jennie, born 11/9/1879, died when she was eleven months old. She is not listed on the census.
      Edward was a drayman (a driver of a dray, a long strong cart without fixed sides for carrying heavy loads) for shippers in New York and in Washington, D.C. His daughter, Della always related to her grandchildren that her father "was a teamster."

      Edward was retired and living at 119 George Street, Sioux City Iowa, at the time of his death 9/18/1932. His cause of death is listed as "Carcinoma of the left buccal cavity involving the pharynx" which was first diagnosed in Feb. of 1929. Treatment on his death certifcate included Radium. He was buried at Logan Park, Sioux City, Iowa, on 9/20/1932.
