From what is told, he lost several boats at sea. He was alcoholic and finally committed suicide.
Edith was always a quiet person.She belonged to the St. James Episcopal Church during her years in Pittsburgh, Penn. In San Diego she attended several different churches. Because she usually had to walk to church or get a ride, she wasn't fussy about where she went. She told her daughters that as a young person she had gone down the "sawdust trail" at a meeting with Billy Sunday, a camptown preacher. This was the term meaning she went forward to receive Christ into her heart and life. Edith had heart troubles at the end of her life. She died in the San Diego County Hospital, in the Hillcrest area.
