This is somewhat confusing since, according to the deeds, the Russels sold in 1968 to the Grafs, but then did work on the house after the sale date.  Is there a relationship between the Russell & Graf families? 
Description: 2 1/2 stories brick and shingle siding, gable roof. 
Story 1: When the Terwillegars lived here, daughter Alice bought a horse named Midnight and taught riding to some village children (Lynn Mileham).  Her brother, Bob, built a stall in the single side of the garage.  Alice used pasture across the street, part of the lot of the house directly across from the school (720 Elm).  She may have ridden some with Kate Cornish (725 Wooster).  Alice lives in Washington State (2002).  Bob also had an aunt, Marie, who lived in Milford on the corner of Lewis and Main.   Information from Bob Terwillegar who has also given us a plan from the Layman's League (St. Thomas) for a recreational area directly behind their house.  
Story 2: According to Bob Terwillegar his mother bought the house from the McKees (probably only rented) who later lived on Amherst.  Bob also says, "When I was growing up here I played with Mary Green and Marty Radcliff. The Greens lived at 716 Floral).  Mary's mother or grandmother was the woman pilot on the river - Green Line Steamers.  We organized a Jr. Commandos after Little Orphan Annie in the comics.  Marty was the oldest and captain.  We met upstairs in the Green garage."  
Story 3: 1911-12 Directory: C. V. McChesney - clerk (Ida M.), Elsie C.- student, Nellie Adams and Stella Brown - teachers, boarders.  J. H. Sells.  All this at Stanton and Elm - but was this house already built or was there an earlier house here or on another corner?  McChesneys moved to 401-1 Marietta
Story 4: Bob Reuter believes someone living here raised bees during the time he was living at 709 Yale.
Story 5: John Rockaway (720 Elm) says his family lived on the 3rd floor of this house when they moved back to Terrace Park after WWII.  This was while they were waiting for their Yale Avenue (823 Yale) house to be built and to get John into Terrace Park 3rd Grade.  During WWII John says they lived all over, wherever there was an army base.  
Did the Rockaways live here or at 509 Marietta or both? 
Story 6: The Gazebo on the Village Green is a memorial to Richard Elliot Ward (architect).  He was born in 22 August 1949 and died 29 December 1988, aged 39 years, buried in St. Thomas Church Columbarium, Section 7, Niche 208.
