NOTE: This was the last parcel of Rufus F. Harrison's land willed to his children. Frederick A. and Kate D. Harrison lived in the house at #23 until their deaths, as did Rufus F. Harrison who died there in 1907. At this time the property included a section of land behind the Moreno property (#27 Lincoln St.) used as a poultry yard. This poultry yard was later sold to Moreno in 1935 (Deed 60) which made the property line running east/west continuous from the street to the rear of the property.
