My grandfather was LG Barger and I don't believe you are looking at the right Bargers. LG moved with 4 of his brothers to Washington CH, OH in the early 1900's and died in 1972. He married to Achsah Jane Stuckey and had four children. One of his sons is still alive and in his 90's. I have memories of LG, Ida, and the decendents of two of his brothers. The Barger name is carried on by four of my cousins.

James Edward Barger is my 2nd great-grandfather. I think I have the same questions as you do about James Edward and James Edgar. I have found a birth record for James Edgar but none for James Edward and just the opposite for death records. Everyone in the immediate family insists that James Edward is the correct name. Have you found any other info on either of these two.
