Their first home in Minersville located on 210 E. Main, was a small two room brick building where they lived about ten years. From there they moved to 210 So. 2nd West. This home was a two room adobe building. Later a several room brick home was built. After moving into this unfinished home, grandmother Corbridge lived in the old home where she spent the remainder of her days.
