"Aunt Anna's House"
Jeanette Britt's Farm (Frank P. Britt's wife)

This was probably where Jeanette Ralston Britt moved with her family after the death of her husband Frank P. Britt in 1907, perhaps because she had to move out of the "Manse" after her husband's death. She moved with her young adult children Robert Ralston, Anna Frances, and Jean McBride Britt. Robert married in 1912 and moved out. Jean went to Europe in WWI, probably around 1917, and Anna lived in New York with a relative roughly from 1920-1930. Anna then probably moved back to this house around the time of her mother's death.
