She was asked if the description printed on the photo of it's exact location seemed accurate: "I suspect it was taken either on the Ingerson/Abbott property or in front of the house on the other side of where Nelson Pratt lived. When I first moved to Grafton that house was owned by a very charming retired M.D., Dr. Lindsay. When we were building our house (1950) I knew that there was a granite slab on that property. It had been the front step of "A very old house." Mr. Sweet owned the property and gave me the step. That is the top step to the front door at 15 Merriam Road ! I do not remember much about Mr. Sweet. He was quite old and not in good health. He died shortly after he gave us the doorstep. Mrs. Sweet was a lovely person. When she died the house was bought by the Tufts. My husbands parents moved from the farm in 1966 and sold the property to Seth Martin, who had lived next door in a house formerly owned by John Kittridge.(across the street from the McEvoys. I knew some of those children in the photos. Rachel Dodge married Frank Kilmer and they lived in the lovely big house on Meadowbrook Rd. He owned a big company in Millbury---New England High Carbon Wire. The other person that I recognize was Robert Leonard. Bob was the Town Clerk in Grafton and was the person who issued our marriage license in Nov. 1947. At that time he was living in the house on North Street that the Fishers lived in."
Nearly same view as above, except appears to have been taken just before/after. Building was torn down 1960's? Was also a "Sure" gas station just to the right of it near RR tracks with an outdoor car lift. HoJo photos courtesy of Doris and Ted Clark.
