In October 1896, Charles T. Case died at Nashville, Tennessee where he worked as the private secretary of the Superintendent of the Southern Express Company. His widow, Roberta S. Case, was residing at 1109 Rokeby Place at Nashville, in 1902. She moved to Ocean Springs before 1920, and resided on front beach with her sons, Carl T. Case and Gordon Case, a medical illustrator. Circa 1911, Carl T. Case had married Edwina Lynd (b. 1892) of New Orleans. Her father, Thomas B. Lynd (1862- 1915), was an affluent cotton broker.

In March 1893, Thomas B. Lynd had purchased a 9.67 acre estate on front beach west of the present day Inner Harbor from Caroline Nill. He called it "Lyndhurst". When Lynd's son-in-law, Carl T.
