Well, my expedition to the Recorder of Deeds office was quite fruitful. I was able to track records on this property to before there was even a house built on it and it was just bare land. There are no questions about who owned the property anymore...however, some other questions come up, particularly after hearing some of the stories we were told...for example, we were told the brother of the original builder, who was a doctor, used the third floor as a sanitarium for people with consumption....however, he never lived on this property? Did he borrow the house from his brother to bring sick people in?...Back to the historical society, I guess...I need answers! .

On another note, I was able to trace their genealogy all yhe way back to the 1600s...1600s...let that sink in for a moment. I will post on that soon!
