Thank you so much. The obituary really helped. Once that incorrect "father-in-law, Bert Morse," was clarified as step-father it makes the connection clear.
This Joseph Edge is then my third cousin 2r. His pedigree is as follows:
Son of Thomas Edge (1857 - 1906) & Zardee Brandt.
Thomas is the son of William Edge (1811 - 1881) & Mary Magee.
William is the son of William Edge (1782-1847) & Mary Needham.
William is the son of John Edge (1746-1849) & Elizabeth Beresford.
John is my 4th great grandfather and I am descended through his second wife Hannah Millard.
Again, thank you for your great assistance.
