Edgar and Abagail FreemantlePosted: March 11, 2008, 14:03:57
From King's message board:
I recently sent this thread to Steve to read and he asked me to post this message:
Several astute readers have commented on Edgar's last name. The answer is yes, of course he is related to Abagail Freemantle. He is in fact her great-great-grandson. (One has to remember, however, that the Abagail Freemantle readers know existed in an alternate Stephen King universe....call in the Stand-verse.) He has no idea of his Afro-American heritage.
The thread it applies to is this one.
