      Florence Lillian Pelton Patterson says in her Pelton Jarvis book: "Edgar w as a farmer, his land being the 50 acre part of the original Pelton fa rm - lot 20, con 3. He worked in cooperation with his brothers, Lionel a nd Herbert. Unmarried, he made his permanent home with his parents. Aft er they moved to Woodstock, he would sometimes stay for the short perio ds in a small house on his own farm; often taking his meals or remaining o ver night at Lionel's place. Undoubtedly we children were noisy and bother some and he was always sending us back into the house 'to keep out of t he way'. When we became too noisy inside the house he would say: 'see h ow long you can sit on that chair and keep quiet!" We nicknamed him 'Bos sy Eggar' although he was the most kind and generous and always deeply con cerned for the welfare and good conduct of his many nieces and nephews. Ed gar was a meticulous person, a loyal son, and ever helpful brother and a r eal good uncle."
