Daniel Edgar Crouse

Daniel Edgar Crouse was the heir to John Crouse, the region’s first millionaire grocer whose most visible legacy is a grand college building on the SU campus. Daniel Edgar was much more devoted to a high lifestyle and built a bachelor’s paradise in Fayette Park. Upon his death at 49, a woman who claimed to have briefly and secretly been Edgar’s wife appeared and claimed daughter, Edgarita, was Crouse’s rightful heir.
