Henry William Edminster, Jr. moved with his family to Middleborough, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts sometime after 1800 and settled in the township of Hartford, Cortland Co., New York in 1813 (possibly 1812). Their family is recorded in the censuses of Harford (first it was part of Virgil in Tioga County) in 1820, 1830 and 1840. However, they had apparently moved a few miles across the county line into Caroline, Tompkins County, from about 1835 to 1840. They had evidently moved a short distance again by 1850 for they were then listed in the census of the township of Dryden, Cortland County. Henry died at Harford, 31 March 1852. Mary and the children soon after removed to Milo, Bureau County, Illinois where she died, 19 September 1866. Both of the Henrys were farmers.

Three of his children, Lemuel, Lucy and Freelove married into the Bement family. Most of the children married, and like the Bement's, moved westward with each advance of adventurous pioneers.
