Edgar Miller Gilman – Railroad man
This cute little guy is Edgar Miller Gilman. Born 2 April 1892 in Reading, Massachusetts to George Gilman and Helen Miller, Edgar grew up to be a tall man with brown eyes and light brown hair. He married Edith May Biggs on 30 June 1914 in Wakefield, Massachusetts. Like his father before him, Edgar worked for the B and M Railroad, first as a trainman and then as a brakeman. By 1940 he had worked his way up to passenger conductor, based at North Station in Boston. It appears that Edgar and Edith only had two children – sons George and Carl.
