    1. [EDGINGTON] George Edgington, both the original and another from Ohio
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: hporfert Surnames: Edgington, Foulks Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.edgington/247/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I am connected to this Edgington family. Two questions: 1.) If you read the stuff on here, it says George was born in 1694 or 1707 in Bristol, Wales. Bristol is in England, and always has been. What do you think about that? Is the theory that he was born in Wales and hopped over to Bristol (London and whippings aside.)Edgington doesn't sound Welsh either. 2.) There is a George Edgington in Ohio, born in 1811, I think. He is my great-great-great-grandfather. Can you believe that this guy apparently was married four times in rapid succession? * Vallary Taylor, married Richland Cty, Ohio, 5 Oct. 1835 * Eliza Johnson, married Richland County 13 July, 1836 * Mary Foulks, married Richland Cty, Ohio, 1 Nov. 1838 * Nancy Foulks, married Richland Cty, Ohio, 18 Oct. 1845 I can't find any info that makes me think this is several different men, either. And I can't find death certs or divorces. Maybe he was a serial killer. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
