Father of F. Scott Fitzgerald
Edward was born in "Glenmary" farm. He attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., for a while before moving west. He was a cousin by marriage to Mary Surratt, who was hanged for complicity in the Lincoln assassination. On February 12, 1890, he married Mollie McQuillan in Washington, D.C. The reception took place at a townhome in the nation's capital kept by Mollie's mother, Louisa McQuillan. Governor William Merriam of Minnesota was in attendance.
When his furniture manufacturing business failed in 1898, the family moved to Buffalo, New York, where he worked as a salesman for Procter & Gamble. The family initially lived in the Lenox, one of the last hotels still remaining in Buffalo, which was considered a very fashionable place to live at the time. The following April, the family moved to a flat in a house at Summer and Elmwood Streets. Ten months later, Edward was transferred to Syracuse, New York, but was back in Buffalo in September 1903, living at 29 Irving Place.
