City of Carthage changed street address' for some reason, causing all sorts of genealogical problems!
Undocumented by me, ~ ~ however ~ ~ its been reported, S H Houser an owner of Carthage Foundry and Machine Works (earlier known as Eagle Foundry Works, and around 1896 became the Stout-Parke Foundry and Machine Shop), located at southwest corner of Oak street and Garrison avenue, where now Memorial Hall is located. Reportedly, Houser had purchased land in 1893 and later built a house, at what is now known as "1615" Grand avenue. A few years later he was in financial trouble, probably result of economic panic caused by the 'Cleveland depression' of 1893. His business assets sold around 1897 & home in 1898. The Carthage, Missouri's Victorian Home tour notes "1615" Grand avenue as "S H Houser/Carmean home", and in March of 1982 was recognized as Historic, Carmean House #82005342.
Two Carthage Press news articles appeared August 1898, first stating G L McMillan of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had bought his brother-in-law's, S H Houser, home for resale. Second article tells of B Hamel of Joplin, Jasper county, Missouri purchasing the home, now 1615 Grand avenue. Then in 1902 another newspaper article reports, Carterville's Albert Foster Carmean purchased a home on Grand avenue from Barney Hanel around 1902 following his election as Jasper county's Circuit Clerk. Its also reported, a stone at that property exists with street number "1371" chiseled in it, remaining as of February 2012 according to current owners, and that James Douglas Clarkson had temporarily resided here under Houser, McMillan & Hamel ownership, after selling his Main street home while building a new home at 807 south Garrison avenue, on what became Jefferson Highway (U S #71) for which he became nationally recognized as a promoter. Albert Foster Carmean is noted living at "1371" Grand avenue in City Directory of 1906-1907 and on 1910 Federal census. 1920 Federal census show Carmean at 1103 south Main street which his death certificate has as location of his 1933 demise. Patrick Joesph McNerney is on Federal census in 1930 as living at 1615 Grand avenue, when the turret was removed due to a water leak problem and Dr Emil Louis Oxeman is said to have resided there in the 1950's. It now, in 2012, is a Bed & Breakfast operatation.
