Edward arrived in the United States either in 1846 or 1848, depending on which document is regarded. He married Anastasia Hogan in Sangamon County, IL, and raised his family in Marion and Champaign Counties, IL. He was a Road Master for the Illinois/Chicago RailRoad for his entire career. He was born in August of 1829. I’d love to find out where he was from. Any help would be gratefully accepted. Best Regards, Cinda Marsh
