1975 Owner:  Geraldine M. Yelton. 129-130 Sib 1
Description: Originally a 1 story Ranch, gable roof: 2 bedrooms.
Story 1: The Harry Upton family lived here in the early 1960s but they do not appear in either the 1962-63 or 1963-4 Telephone Directory.  They evidently bought from the Huth family.  They had a daughter Elsie who had a birthday party attended by Mary Tarkington and perhaps Susie Konald both of whom also lived on Harvard.  Harry worked at P&G and was in a car pool with Leslie Jones (Western & Southern).  He drove a VW beetle.  Mary Tarkington describes 319 Harvard as a "tiny house on a big lot".  
Story 2: Doug Channer (son of Jack & Susan) responded to our web page invitation to add information.  He moved to 319 Harvard with his parents when he was in Mrs. Gallagher's  2nd grade and feels very fortunate to have been able to grow up in Terrace Park.  He remembers 319 as a cozy house which had a wonderful side yard.  His two younger sisters were born there.  Doug says both his parents reported having seen a ghost in the house and it always did the same thing.  "It would walk from the little living room and stand at the end of the bed for a minute or so and then vanish."  I wonder if the ghost is ever seen in the replacement house?  I now know the answer is yes.  A man has appeared at night by the bed 9 times and then disappeared.  
Story 3: The Buban family "lived at this address for several years, until 1990.  At that time the house on that lot was a 3-bedroom ranch.  It would be fun to report supernatural goings-on, but alas, we can't - it was pretty quiet around there."
Story 4: An earlier story from Pat Fehl:  Before there were houses built at 319, 323 & 327 Harvard a lady living on Park used to bring her cow over every day to graze.  Ruth Clayton has identified the owner of the cow as Mrs. Rose Saap of 727 Park.
