Historical/Biographical Note

Historical/Biographical Note

Second son Edward had apparently distinguished himself scholastically, for at 1815 at age ten he attended Phillips Academy, Exeter. He later continued at Harvard, completing his A. B. in 1825, his M. D. in 1829. There is some evidence that he was for a short time also engaged as a merchant but spent most of his long life practicing medicine from his father's home on Middle Street.
