In recent years he made extensive trips out west with Heather to visit many of the national parks. He enjoyed his garden and watching the birds, sitting on his front porch to see all the action, and relaxing in front of a nice fire. Ed also enjoyed and was a regular at the Van Dyck Family Reunion. Ed was known for his sense of humor and was a man of his convictions. He was a man who welcomed a passionate political debate and met it with a keen intellect and a broad knowledge.

||I'm just home from a visit to Edinburgh, and wondered if you knew this about our ancestor Ann Sarah Herriott, whose portrait I found in one of the boxes at my mother's house after she died last year. The back of the photograph reads, "Ann Sarah Herriott, wife of Benjamin Jones. A descendant of David Harriott and Helen Campbell who came to this country from Edinburg (sic) Scotland 1685." The photo was taken October 1, 1871. Ann Sarah Herriott lived from 1804-1875 and was a great-great-granddaughter of immigrant David Harriott.|
In Edinburgh, there is a school that is more than 400 years old called George Heriot's School. Turns out, George was a goldsmith to James VI of Scotland (who later became James I of England) and his wife. He moved with them to London, died wealthy and childless. He left his fortune to establish a school for "fatherless bairns" in his hometown. The school still operates, in fact, J.K. Rowling sent her children there, the teachers wear robes, and it is believed to be a model for Hogwarts.
From sources there I find that our ancestor David seems to have been descended from a half-brother to George.

After taking some time to start a family, she resumed work as a postal clerk at both the Pattersonville and Rotterdam Junction Post Offices. She also managed to squeeze in a stint as a receptionist for a dermatology office in Schenectady.
She loved her family, her kitties, walking outdoors, knitting, summertime at Lake George, and played a fierce game of rummy.
