Edmund Jennings Lee (1772–1843) was the fifth son of Henry Lee of Leesylvania. He and his wife had settled in Alexandria where he practiced law. Mr. Scudder may be a son or brother of Nathaniel Scudder (1733–1781) of Monmouth County, N.J., who had been a member of the Continental Congress and a colonel of New Jersey militia. Dr. English is probably Dr. James English of Upper Freehold Township, Monmouth County, N.J.
