Obituary

Newport (RI) Mercury, 23 Dec 1922

Rev. Edward P. Lee, one of the oldest clergymen in the Episcopal diocese of Vermont, died at Brightlook Hospital, St. Johnsbury after months of failing health. He was for years rector of the Episcopal church in Island Pond, Vt. He was 82 years old, and served in the Civil war as Captain of a Vermont regiment and was one of the oldest graduates of Amherst College.
