Hannah Beach Van Winkle (November 11, 1835)
Edgar S. Van Winkle was born August 3, 1810 in New York City to Peter Van Winkle and Phoebe Godwin Van Winkle. He married Litchfield Female Academy student, Hannah Starr Beach Van Winkle and they had a home in New York City. Edgar studied in the law office of John P. Jackson in Newark, NJ, and also with William Slosson in New York, NY. He died December 9, 1882. [More research needs to be done on this student, as he was related to an LHS Board Member. His death record may need to be updated, as a Ce. Note: There seems to be a Van Winkle connection in West Virginia (at least after Edgar's death), as the Van Winkle's are cited in The History of West Virginia and its People, Lewis Historical Publishing Co.]
