  • Notes 
    • An Edmund Alger Jr. is found on the 1790 U.S. census of Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. The household consisted of one male over 16 (possibly Edmund himself), 1 male under 16 (possibly his oldest son, William), and 3 females (possibly his wife, his oldest daughter, Hulda, and one other.)

      In March 1801, Edmund moved his family to Eaton, Canada. He was afflicted like his father with blindness.
