Edward Marden Sr. – Timeline 1.1

I believe it is time to review all I have discovered about Edward before moving on to Edward Jr. First I will revise my timeline for him, then in my next post I will revise his map.

New events in the timeline are in bold. Events I have disproven since the last timeline are crossed out.
