Edward Raymond is known only from a 1936 genealogy on the Hanford family. No other record of him has been found. He could possibly be the E. S. Hanford, age 2, buried 27 Dec 1856 at Mount Hope Cemetery, where many other family members were buried. But the wrong middle initial and the residence address listed for this child which does not match any known address for the family make this questionable.28,29
