Findings on George W. Stevens, resident of 819

Some small developments and findings on George W. Stevens, so far first owner-occupier of one of the row houses.  His obituary printed in the New York Times notes his sudden death while dictating a letter at the age of 69.  He had four children, the first his only girl, Helen Stevens who married Episcopal minister Rev. John J. Gravatt.  So, we now know that most likely the property was transferred to Helen by will, then sold (transferred by deed) by the Gravatts to the Holzgrefe sisters in 1942.
