Edward was my mother's uncle. They named a street after him, and the family story is that he was the first West Orange police officer to die on duty. Edward's parents came over at age 4 and 5 during The Irish Famine--Pat to Orange, Fannie to Baltimore. Pat became a hatter and was able to buy a double-lot home in Orange, then died at age 40, leaving his wife Fannie to raise Edward and his 7 surviving siblings. Edward married and raised his family on "Nanny Goat Hill", Prospect Place, in West Orange. Everyone loved and admired him.
