The Boarding House
The boarding house owned my Mary A. Grumbles Plumley!
After the death of James T. Plumley, Sr. his widow; Mary A. Grumbles Plumley purchased a house at 303 East 7th Street in Austin, Travis County, Texas. Taking on boarders until her death in 1914.
It surfaces periodically throughout the history of the family as a place where her sons; John and George lived or a place where her grandson; George Best lived before her death.
These photos have recently been dated, but should they be wrong, feel free to let me know!
