Eugene Edwards was born on Valentine’s Day, February 14, in 1860. The son of John S. Edwards and Mary Ann Dodge, he lived all of his life in New Boston, New Hampshire. He married Addie Ella Russell (the daughter of George Russell and Sarah Irving on New Year’s Day, January 1st, 1885. Addie was born on 10 January of 1867. It appears that they had only one son, Frank, who was born in October of 1885. (Look for a future blog post on Frank.)

A farmer all of his life, Eugene died of a cerebral hemorrhage on 30 August 1921. Three years later, on 21 June 1924, 57 year old Addie married in Goffstown, New Hampshire for a second time. Her new husband was George W. Dennison, a meat merchant in New Boston. He was the son of David Dennison and Mary Cooper. George was 53 years old and it was his first marriage. Addie died 20 March 1931 of pernicious anemia. George died three years later on 16 March 1934 of auricular fibrillation brought on by the flu. He was not yet 63 years old.
