Andrew Burgess & Martha Louisa Edgley

Classification: Query
Surnames: Burgess, Edgley
Seeking parents of Andrew Burgess (age 34 in 1855) who married Martha Louisa Edgley (age 25 in 1855), d/0 Roswell & Harriet (Root) Edgley of Fulton, Oswego County, NY c1851. Andrew and his family were located in the 1855 NY state census living at Sterling, Cayuga County, NY with three children, or Frances (female) age 3, Albert age 2, and Wm. no age. Unfortunately FamilySearch does not provide the image of this page of the 1855 census so Andrew's birth location is not known. Supposedly, Andrew moved his family to the Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin area after this time where his fourth child, or Olive L. was born in 1859. The family tells the story that Andrew was killed by a falling log while working in the northern Wisconsin pineries. No information exists to substantiate this story. We do know that Martha Louisa was remarried to Timothy Butler, son of Edward and Bridget Butler on 18 June 1860 in Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin.
