Edgar Storrs was born and lived in the same house all his life except for a few years he spent in Colorado. He was married before he married Annie Gilbert. His first wife died very young of tuberculosis. He had contracted the disease too. The pure mountain air was recommended as a cure for T.B. Actually there was no cure. I don't know how long he was gone but he came home. He ran a farm and had a hobby of taxidermy. ... I really don't remember him. I was only four when he died. We lived in Northern Vermont and he in Conn. They always said what a kind person he was.
Edgar had a separate bedroom, isolated from the rest of the house. (He kept the windows opened wide.) He always put Norman Rockwell's pictures around the room at top of walls.
The old Storrs house was located near the Spring Hill Baptist Church which the family attended. When Edgar died in 1921 he was buried in the church cemetery. Note: The cemetery is now referred to as Hillside cemetery. The town offices are across the road. The main campus of the University of Connecticut is a couple of miles north. The area around the UCONN campus is called "Storrs" after Augustus Storrs who donated the land.
