The cover photo is ca. 1894 when the house had just been purchased by John Freeman Keyes (1851 - 1925) and his wife Fannie L. Tubbs (1856 - 1925).

This Gravel Pit Road home was built ca. 1800 - 1810 and was the home of Daniel Sullivan Ewing (1787 - 1862).  His 1st wife was Harriet Thankful Tuttle (1789 - 1819), his 2nd her sister Sarah Eliza Tuttle (1802 - 1828), and his 3rd Mary (Polly) Tuttle Parsons (1780 - 1871).  It briefly became the home of his son Julius Alexander Campbell Ewing (1809 - 1886) and then in 1864 his son, the newly married Charles Ewing (1842 - 1891) and Susannah Olin Briggs (1845 - 1927), moved into the house.  They lived there until 1882 when they swapped homes with Charles' parents Julius Alexander Campbell Ewing (1809 - 1886) and Mary Harris Otis (1813 - 1898). 

Below are photos of Charles at age 22 and then in the parlor ca. 1880, followed by undated photos of Susannah and Julius.
