: The Edison family moved to Canada at the end of the American Revolution with others who had taken the side of the British king rather than the American colonists. In the 1830s, the family was forced to flee Canada due to Edison's father Samuel's participation in the unsuccessful Papineau-MacKenzie Rebellion against the Canadian government. Samuel and Nancy Elliot Edison and their children settled first in Milan, Ohio and then in Port Huron, Michigan. Edison was born February 11, 1847. View on Ohio Memory.
