Edward D Voorhest took up residence in Oyster Bay Cove, where he set up his own business. He owned and operated E. D. Voorhest Flour & General Groceries', which was located on the south-east corner on what is now known as Moore's Hill Road and Cove Road. He ran this store for a number of years, before he sold the building and property after his wife passed away.


Edward was married to Phoebe S. Foster, (4-8), probably around 1888, in the Oyster Bay area. They resided in the upstairs portion of their general store.


Shortly after his wife passed away in 1935, Edward moved into the home of his daughter, Edna Virginia (Voorhest) Thurston, (3-4). Edna, at that time lived on LaRue Drive in Huntington, New York.


Edward Duryea Voorhest, (4-7), passed away on November 1, 1939 at his daughter's home. He was buried in St. John's Memorial Cemetery in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, beside the grave of his late wife.
