     Conrad Barton Edgett was born on 19 July 1896 at New Brunswick.2 Source records include multiple birthdates for him. The most common value is 19 July 1898, but I have selected 19 July 1896 because that was present in the most contemporary record I have found, the 1901 census. Elizabeth Bezanson, Mattie Edgett and Conrad Barton Edgett appeared twice on the 1901 census. He began military service on 25 April 1918.3 He married Lillian Elizabeth Morrison on 31 October 1925 at Sydney, Nova Scotia. He was 29.1 Conrad Barton Edgett became a naturalized U.S. citizen on 22 May 1941.4 He died on 4 July 1981 at Collier County, Florida, at age 84.5
