Although he had no way of knowing it, in 1906, Edwin E. Tarr became the last official U.S. Lighthouse Service keeper to serve at Long Island Head Lighthouse, a position he held until his death at the lighthouse in 1918. He is shown here with his wife Grace E. (Jones) Tarr (l), and his daughter Sadie Belle Tarr (r). (Courtesy Sally Anderson)
