I know this is old but hoping someone with information will see this. The son of Edward and Charlotte went to Pike county Illinois, buying land there in 1836. Charlotte is on the 1860 census with him there. She is 72 born Maryland. I don't know if the above information on Edwards death is speculation or a guess. I do not know if he also went to Illinois. This family seems to be connected to the Van Meter family who also went to Pike Co Illinois. Anyone with more information on Edward I would like to hear from you.
