Detailed History

Believe to be the establishment of Josephine Brown, aged 58 in the 1940 Census, living with husband James Brown, aged 64, in the $1800 house they owned at 108 11th Street. Josephine was from Indiana/Ohio originally and listed as "cleaning" for a private family while James was a janitor for a office building in town. Renting rooms to travelers was a third income for the family. While no boarders were listed as long-term residents of the property in 1940, the 1930 Census does list both Josephine's widowed daughter, James' step-daughter, Vera C. Coe and granddaughter living in the home along with a boarder named Paul Bolden working in town as a chauffeur for a private family.
