- Edgar B. Way was on the Board of Select Men in Liberty County in 1930. Social news for the county was reported in the Savannah Times including a story about a fishing party in November 1919, a member of which was Edgar B. Way.
The 1920 Federal Census lists Edgar B. Way, a.65, and his wife Eva, a. 68, and three children Olive, Eva and Albert, were all born in Georgia (as were Edgar and Eva’s parents).
The 1930 Federal Census lists Edgar B. Way, a. 75, with his wife Eva, a. 68, and their grandson Allen A. Way, a.3 and 11 months. The census states that he was 29 at the time of his first marriage.
Many Ways appear to have been baptized on this date, the online record reflects a comment, but it is not included in the online records.
Two facts lead me to include these children with these parents:
1. In a photo album documenting the birth of Edgar Leroy Way (b. ), a caption reads “Three generations of Edgars.” This must mean Edgar’s father and grandfather are named Edgar.
2. These names appear on a chart typed by Mamie Lila (Marylyn) Way Estabrook, known aunt of Edgar Leroy Way referenced above (she is called Aunt Mamie Lila in a photo caption and her will included bequests to her siblings children, including those of Edgar Leroy Way). The children of this couple and their children are from this same note. The note is not clearly laid out so it is hard to determine whether relationships are correct. However, many of the relationships are based on those who inherited money under her will with proportional splits and number of children to determine generation.
I believe the following, also listed on the note as follows, are Edgar Bacon Way’s siblings and their spouses:
William John WAY (Jane Spivey)
Fleming (Theodora) Aeneas (Alice)
Edgar (Eva) Leland (Nellie) Macon
Albert (Margaret) Anna, Lila,
Sallie Lou, Eva [1, 2, 10, 11, 12]
