Their home was called the "Red house". Apparently it was painted red and the original builder's name was Redd and he had built gun ports in the wall. The house was used as a refuge during Indian raids. The river bottoms were subject to flooding and the road was relocated.
Additional information about the Redd House came from the Poindexter message board.
