[b 9 Apr. 1855 at South Woodstock, CT; d 8 Mar. 1805 at New Bedford, MA] Edward Delevan Fenner m Adeline Lee Allen [b 13 Jan. 1862 at Woodstock Valley, CT; d 29 Apr. 1945 at Norwalk, CT] on 27 February 1887 in Woodstock Valley, CT. She was the daughter of Edward Allen and Mary Kenyon. Edward was a builder. It is quite likely that Edward was named after Edward Cornelius Delevan [b 1793; d 1871], a wealthy businessman who devoted much of his fortune to the temperance movement. The pinnacle of his success was the prohibition of alcohol in the State of New York in 1855—the year Edward Delevan Fenner was born.
