  ALBERT EDGAR is another of the successful and popular farmers of Royalton township who is deserving of specific representation in this historical work.  He was born in Royalton township, Sept. 28, 1869, and is a son of William S. and Susannah (Pontius) Edgar, the former of whom was born in county Armagh, Ireland, and the latter in Pike county, Ohio.  William S. Edgar is a son of Samuel and Mary (Parks) Edgar, who came from Ireland to America in 1857, settling in Henry county, Ohio, where the latter died.  Her husband later removed to Ingham county, Michigan, where he passed the remainder of his life.  Daniel Elizabeth (Leist) Pontious, the maternal grandparents of the subject of this sketch, were of stanch Pennsylvania dutch stock, and were pioneers of both Henry and Fulton counties, Ohio, in which latter both were residents at the time of death, the former passing away at the age of eighty-three and his wife at the age of eighty-one.  William S. Edgar was born in county Armagh, Ireland, on the 10th of July, 1833, and came to America in 1854, about three years earlier than did his parents.  He took up his residence in Henry county, Ohio, where he was employed in a saw-mill for the ensuing three years, after which he there engaged in farming, on the bottom-lands of the Maumee river.  In 1864 he came to Fulton county and located in Clinton township, where he remained until 1868, when he purchased a farm in Royalton township, becoming one of the representative farmers of this section and continuing to reside on the homestead until the autumn of 1904, when he and his devoted wife removed to the village of Delta, where he is now living retired.  His children are five in number, namely:  William R., Alva, Elmer, Albert and George.  Albert Edgar, the immediate subject of this review, was reared to manhood on the old homestead farm, and has passed his entire life thus far in Royalton township, in whose public schools he secured his educational discipline.  He is now the owner of a fine farm of one hundred and twenty acres, improved with good buildings and maintained under a high state of cultivation, while forty acres of his land is a part of the old homestead on which his father settled in 1868.  In politics he is a stanch Republican, and he is a loyal and public-spirited citizen, being at the present time a member of the board of education in his township.  He and his wife hold membership in the Christian church at Lyons and they enjoy marked popularity in the social life of their home community.  Sept. 21, 1893, Mr. Edgar was united in marriage to Miss Mamie E. Mann, daughter of Charles and Mary (Hinkle) Mann, of Royalton township, and they have one daughter, Ida May, Mable Irene, the oldest child, being deceased.
