    Context:                    The address, 924 Court, is not listed in the 1893-94 or the 1899-00 City Directories.  It first appears in the 1901 City Directory.  However, an address plaque near the front door states the house was built in 1895.  James B. Corlett, a commercial traveler, lived there in 1901.  Hamilton Irving lived there from 1902 to 1904.  The Corlett family then lived there again for the next thirty years.  James B. Corlett was listed as head of household from 1916 to 1931.  His wife Mabel C. Corlett was listed as head thereafter until about 1940.
