One step closer

This is a copy of the Sanborn Map of Cape Charles for the year 1904; 1903 has not been digitized. Our house is clearly constructed and even the front and back porches are shown. This also helped to determine that the back porch was original; we have been unable to find photographs of it. So, we know from tax records that the house was not on the lot in 1902 but is definitely there in 1904. The 1903 records seem to be missing for several sources of information but we may be able to search tax records at the courthouse for 1903. That will be our last and final stop on this part of the journey.
