Eldred House Photo Request

Does anyone have another photo of what was once James Eldred’s house shown in this photo?

The home is no longer there, but sat near Halfway Brook, south of of Proctor Road. It was the house which replaced the original structure James Eldred and his family settled in at the end of 1815.

My great-grandmother Mary Ann Eldred (Austin) would have been almost three when the house in the photo was built around 1830. I also think my grandfather C.M. Austin and his twin Edward were born in that house in 1865.

I first posted a request for the names of the people in the photo. They are Mary Myers and her son Clifford. The photo is on page 327 of “Farewell to Eldred.”
