Story 1   Jinny Cotherman from Lake Forest, Illinois, visited Terrace Park in April 2003 to find her mother's childhood home. Jinny's mother was Mary Elaine Fitzwilson (now Anderson). Her parents' names were Estelle and Charles (see Deeds: Estella E. Fitzwilson owned 321 Rugby from 1923 to 1931). She had 3 brothers (Charles, Robert & Richard). In 2003 she and her brother Richard are the only ones still alive. The Fitzwilson family were living here when the 1930 Census was taken (see Census: Their father is listed as a salesman).
Story 2   Vinnie Ader told Jane Peterson she had heard that at one time Robinson Circus performers boarded in this house.

They sold 321 Rugby in 1970 and moved to Findlay OH. After they were divorced, Bill married Margo Zickafoose. She had 2 boys, Scott & Tim, whom Bill adopted. They had a daughter, Brean, who was born after thy moved (1972) to Salt Lake City. They divorced in 1987 and Bill has enjoyed being single ever since.
