in Cambridge, Ohio, by the name of Opal Van Dyne-Owens. She
enclosed a newspaper clipping from the May 17 Daily Jeffersonian.
and Ann did live in this house on Highland Avenue, didn't you?
Opal asked. Thought you'd enjoy the write-up about

to the article, The Charm home of Dave and Carolee
Ogle, 1134 Highland Ave., was built by Cambridge Coal and
Lumber. There was an open house on April 16, 1941, to market it
as a model home. The kitchen bay, installed by a local artist,
the late Stanley Matthews, overlooks a wooded hillside with a variety
of birds and wildlife. The home was purchased in 1994 from Mrs.
Paul Coss, and it was extensively remodeled to maintain the original decor.
