Edwin P. Lee

Edwin P. Lee, 81 years of age, died early yesterday morning at his home in Erving. Born in Stamford, Vt., Mr. Lee made his home there for many years. He served in the Civil War as a member of Company H, Eighth Vermont Volunteers, and his record states that he took part in many important engagements. Returning from the war, he settled in Erving, where he has since made his home. He was a member of C.D. Sanford post, G.A.R. of this city.

Mr. Lee was a man who was held in high regard by his business associates, a man of integrity, honest and kind. He will be greatly missed by a wide circle of friends and the news of his death will be received with genuine sorrow by many here.

Besides his widow, he is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Belle Harris of this city, Mrs. Emma Evans and Mrs. Ida Dodge of Warehouse Point, Conn.; by two sons, Arthur Lee of Erving and Fred Lee of Worcester; by two brothers, A.A. Lee of Hamilton, Ont., and W.A. Lee Stamford, Vt.; by one sister, Mrs. Louise Seymour of Middleboro, and by several grandchildren.

The funeral will be held from his late home in Erving Saturday morning at 9 o'clock and then the body will be brought in this city by automobile and burial will be in the family lot in Stamford cemetery about 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon.
