With their earnings from the leased land, George and Mary bought a 32 acre farm from Maggie Ryan, moving her home from Jaboneria Road (just north of John Barbarena's) to a location just behind that where the two story house was to be built at the current Perry Road address. The smaller house, no longer there, would eventually be used as a bunk house for hired farm workers for whom the sleight Marry Peterson would provide hardy meals during harvest times.
