Edgar D... Hendershot born Nov. 21, 1871. Parents Peter Hendershot, pump maker, and Eliza Jane Misener. Physician and informant Dr. T. J. Patten (or Potter) of Jerseyville Village. Registered Dec. 25, 1871. Registrar Wm. A. Cooley, Ancaster, Wentworth.

The above birth registration was the first available for any of the Hendershot children. The registration of births in Ontario did not begin until July 1, 1869, and though a requirement, it was years before it could be said to be widely done. The above registration isn't legible on all point - Edgar's middle name could be almost anything. At the time the registrar was for all of Ancaster. Edgar may have been born in the township, or within the recognized borders of the village. The 1871 census suggests that the family was living in an area that was a place of mixed occupations so they may have lived right in Jerseyville.
