Edgington/Robinette Family Histories
(Email correspondence between Summer Edgington and Flora L. VerStraten)

Thomas Edgington was the son of George Sr. & Margaret Broome. A third cousin on the Robinette side sent me everything she had on the Edgington Family. I have only been able to get to George, I.

I really am curious about his sons as well. I also want to get more information on their wives and children if it is available. I found a great-great uncle on the Robinette side and hope he will be able to provide more info as well.

My Great Grandfather was Tad Robinette. I know he married Mollie and had a Daughter named Betty Mae who married my Grandfather Joseph Cyrus Edgington, Sr. Betty Mae Robinette-Edgington may have passed sometime in the 1960's.

(I was able to retrieve these from my parent's wedding invitation list.)
I know I am related to William Robinette Sr, Last known IA
William Robinette Jr, Last known OH
Darrel Robinette, Last known Beckly, WV possibly married or related to Mary Margaret
Orville Robinette, Last known Leewood, WV
Warren Robinette, Last known Belle, WV
Marvin E. Robinette, Last known Elkview, WV

Joseph Cyrus Edgington Sr. 1st married Betty Mae Robinette and she died. Joe Cyrus, Sr. then married his girl friend Barbara.They had Bradley. Joe's sister Jacqueline married Richard White.They had a son Richard and another child,she couldn't remember their name.Joe's sister Ruth married Ralph Little.They had Deanna,Billy Joe,Bonnie,Richard and one more,she couldn't remember.Joe's other sister,Juanita's second marriage was to John Nestor.They adopted Timmy,who was supposed to be John's brother's son.Timmy got married and had a son. After he had the child,he found out that his wife was his sister,so they divorced. I know that my grandfather came from a large family and I am still putting together all the siblings. 

I  am also trying to seek out which Edgington's were in the Columbus Ohio area around 1968 and may have been in their 20's and female.

This is what Marilyn my 3rd cousin sent me. She has even shared pictures of my dad and his brother (both deceased) when they were kids. I knew she was kin when she was able to tell me things about the family that have stayed in the family. It was confirmation that when she started asking certain questions.

More About RALPH T. EDGINGTON:  Great Grandfather
Occupation: Bricklayer

Being that Ralph was a bricklayer and there is a house which is still standing to this day that he may have built, really keeps me wondering. I even found my great-great Uncle Tad Robinette. I have so many old pictures and I sent some to him, that were of him, his wife and his son. He didn't have that picture and really appreciated it. Now I know who they are. I hate that work keeps me so busy that I cannot get all those pictures scanned. I must do it soon. 

Marilyn even sent photos to me of George, Sr and Jr. Peter, Eleanor (sister to my Grandfather Joe Cyrus, Sr.), Nelson and Ralph, Flora Edgington and her husband Virgil Hindman.
I also noticed that several Edward Edgington's were born from the 1800s. All with different parents listed but all seem tied back to George, Sr. Amazingly enough it seems as though the Edgington men have been destined to serve their country.  


HOMAN BENJAMIN HALLOCK died at his residence No. 736 North Fifth Street, Saturday morning, October 19, 1895.  He was born on the island of Malta June 14, 1830, his father being a missionary there under the American Board.  The mission was moved to Smyrna, Asia Minor, where he lived until he was twelve years of age, at which time… his father returned to this country.  At sixteen years of age he came to Steubenville to live with his great uncle, Judge JEREMIAH HALLOCK….when he was twenty-five he married ADELIA ANN FARNSWORTH of Holliday’s Cove, W.VA….He enlisted in 1861 in the Volunteer Infantry, Twelfth Virginia Regiment, Company I. and was in active service until the close of the war.  He moved his family from his farm at Edgington Station in 1876 and has been in business in Steubenville ever since.  He leaves to mourn him a wife and twelve children, eight sons, Revs. GERARD B.F. of Rochester, N.Y.; ROBERT CRAWFORD of Brooklyn; WILLIAM ALLEN of Groveland, N.Y.; and HENRY G.C. of Princeton, N.J.; Doctors  SILAS F. of N.Y., and JOHN C. of Cleveland; also CHARLES B. on business in N.Y., and HOMAN F.G., a young lad at home; and four daughters: MRS. EFFIE H. BRADDOCK, a missionary in India; MARY E. and FRANCES A., in college…and MARGARET W.  at home.

The more I look into my great grandfather (x6) George Edgington, Sr., and  gt.grandmother (x6), Margaret Broome validates the reason why I want to know more. All 6 sons served together. Amazing. I am very grateful to the soldiers who serve our country, and knowing all of these men were family too; I am so grateful your organization is available. I understand why I am so passionate about this country and our freedom.

Thanks for your help,

Summer J. Edgington
