The census data suggests that Samuel & Delia may have lived in the same house for at least 30 years as the house number may have changed between the 1880 and 1900 federal census. It is certain that Samuel died at the home on #239 Court Street in Auburn. His widow Delia then moved in with her son-in-law & daughter William Frye Jr. & Grace Fessenden (MERRILL) GARCELON in Newton, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts where she died two years later in 1912. She was then returned to Auburn for burial.
