Edgar was my great grandfather thu Miles and his son William. I have had no luck trying to find Edgars parents. I have his civil war medical records from the National Archives but they have little ancestry info. I have also tried to find his marriage records and death records. Fairfax VA has lost most of the birth and death records for 1895. One clue is his 1850 census record where he is living with his sister or cousin, Mary Hogle(maiden name Cherry) in WI. I also would like to find his parents. I think he was probable born in Auburn NY as was his father.
He was a miller before his injuries in the war. Some of the Cherrys around Auburn were millers circa 1810. Keep me posted.
