9 / 12

of 12 by 1880, and was a teacher in the Easton public schools from 1886-93.  Obituary, “Mrs. Chidsey, 94, Former Easton Resident, Dies”, Easton Express, Wed., 13 Dec. 1961, p.1, col.3 (Mrs. George Anna Lake Chidsey, widow of Andrew Dwight Chidsey, founder of Hackett & Chidsey, married in 1903);  1880 Census, Series T9, Roll 1161, pp.373B – 374C (Georgianna Lake, granddaughter of Nelson Lake, age 12).  

7 Interview with William Oliver Andes III (Archive) (9 August 2007) (based in part on an old picture of the house that he had seen).   See also Deed, [Rev.] Samuel Sitgreaves and James Linton, Executors of the Will of Samuel Sitgreaves, to Mary Ralston, E5  263 (1 Apr. 1829)(describing the property now numbered 208 Spring Garden Street as ending at the partition wall dividing it from the “adjacent Building now the Property of Robert Innes”) ;  Deed, Mary Ralston to Sara Maxwell, A6  258 (9 May 1835)(same).  

A story was related in Easton Main Street Initiative, 31st Annual Easton House Tour 19 (14 May 2011)(Site #2), that two sisters lived in Nos.206 and 208 when they were identical, but one sister appliced the “Victorian façade” to No.206 to make it “grander” than her sister’s house.  The circumstance that Maxwell sisters did occupy both premises (see below) when they were a duplex appears to be consistent with other data, but the “Victorian” (i.e. Queen Anne) façade appears to have been applied by a later owner (Floyd Bixler – see below), and not by Mary Maxwell McCartney.
