    Elliott Home
    Labelled simply as "Elliott Home," this was first assumed to be the home that Augustus & Sarah Elliott shared with their daughter and son-in-law, Ida & Bert Smith. The two families shared a home from about 1910 to 1940, which was located at 501 Taylor Street, in Grand Ledge, Mich. The home that was originally at 501 Taylor has since been torn down, but photos of a home that appeared to be at that location in the 1930's differed significantly. Possibly this was their home in Lake Odessa, Michigan? ANY ASSISTANCE IN PINPOINTING THE LOCATION OF THIS HOME, WHICH IS CURRENTLY UNKNOWN, WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
