She and her husband, Isaiah Shenafield are recorded as living here the next year. In 1910 Charles E. and Margaret Brown bought the property; Mr. Brown was listed as a farmer and later was employed as an electrician for Pacific Telephone and Telegraph. Mr. Brown died c.1915 and Mrs. Brown continued to live here until 1937. Later owners were Ben and Vera Kastrica and Maurice and Rose Church.
