Rev. Edward Quigley, 78, attended St. John the Baptist Seminary, Charleston, North Carolina and was a priest of the Diocese of Charleston in 1837 by Bishop England. This is according to a letter quoted in "Catholicity in the Carolinas: Leaves of History" by Jeremiah Joseph O'Connell OSB (Available on Google Books). The letter tells of his experiences in Charleston, Atlanta, Savannah and other places.
In 1858 while he was stationed at Savannah, Georgia, yellow fever scourged the city. Father Quigley stood bravely by his post and administered the sacraments to the multitude who were sick and dying daily and hourly.
He served in that diocese for about a quarter century until 1859, when he moved to Buffalo, New York and was assigned in Rochester for a few years.
Father Quigley also served at St. Joseph Cathedral and at St. Joseph Church in Lockport from 1863-1866 and in St. Mary Church in Corning and Immaculate Conception Church in East Aurora. He served Immaculate Conception Church, Buffalo for two and a half years until his health required an easier assignment.
He was known as a learned and highly respected priest. He was an uncle of Archbishop James Quigley of Chicago, former bishop of Buffalo.
