Interesting history.
Is the "Buck" in the family the same as in Buck and Buck realty, that developed parts of Arlington?

Good question, not sure. I'll have to ask the author.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Great story and family history.

Seems people were more aware of environmental risks a hundred plus years ago than today given that the height of the building's main floor probably exceeds almost everything around it built since then.  Examples like this make me think our ancestors may have been smarter than their descendants in many (most?) instances  8).
