      Simpson Edge and his wife, Evaline S. Penn Edge were pioneer settlers in this part of Georgia. Simpson was born in Wilkes County in 1805, the son of Obediah Edge and his wife, a Miss Aley. He was the grandson of Nehemiah and Sarah Stephens Edge, who moved to Baldwin County from North Carolina soon after the Revolutionary War. Evaline Penn was born in Oglethorpe County, Ga. around 1810. This couple married June 25,1831 or 1833. Evaline is the daughter of Moses Penn and Pernia (Penny) White Bird Penn. Their families lived in Monroe County. They probably moved to this part of Georgia from Monroe County.
      Children of this marriage were:
      1. Sara Ann Edge, b. 12-07-1832, d. 4-16-1904, m. Samuel H. English.
      2. Josephine Edge, b. 10-23-1834, d. in Ellaville 3-31-1913 m. William Wallace English.
      3. Elizabeth P. Edge, b.11-07-1836, d. 1-11-1911, m. Daniel Edge, son of Marlin Edge on 1-07-1865.
      *4. Emily Jane "Press" Edge, b.1838, m. J. Floyd Kent in 1855
      5. William Henry Harrison Edge, b. 1838, m. Sarah Ann Mahlia Johnson, d. in Bryan, Texas.
      6. Permelia Petrona Edge, b. 10-14-1844, d. 3-27-1909, m. Joel Wenil English.
      7. Warren Lee Edge, 1-15-1846, d. 2-14-1916 in Bryan, Texas. He married Miss Jane Cloud in 1866.

      9. John Simpson Edge, M.D., b. in 1852, m. Ella Hudson in 1873 in Schley county, d. in Bryan, Texas.
      The U.S. Census, Georgia, 1850 showed the Simpson Edge family living in Macon Co., the 740th District.
      Simpson Edge died Nov. 6, 1854. His Will was probated in Sumter Co. Evaline Penn Edge died Nov. 2, 1858. Her Will was probated in Schley Co. Their family farm is in the southeastern part of Schley county. It was bought from the family by William and Cecelia Childers. It became known as "The Childers Place."
      Their sons, William Henry and Warren Lee served in the Confederate Army. William Henry served in the 11th Bn. Sumter Flying Artillery under Major Allen S. Cutts along with his brother-in-law, Wm. W. English.
      In the 1870's the three Edge sons and their families moved to the Bryan, Texas area. They established a large Edge family in Texas.
      These Texas families maintained contact with their Georgia families with many family members visiting in Georgia through the years. One young couple visited in Ellaville back in the 1960's.
      Among the descendents of Simpson and Evaline now living in the area are: Heywood Johnson, Ellaville; Miss Josephine Esterlin and George Warren Dykes of Americus; and Mrs Homer Fowler of Englishville.
