I love this house- it's even in good condition today! This is the home of my 2nd great grand aunt and her family-

Mary Wilhemina Jeckering 
b. 25 Mar 1860 in Dayton, Ohio
d. 22 Mar 1913 in Dayton, Ohio

m. John Adam Heider (1858-1911) 

Mary and John owned J.A. Heider Groceries & Meats. They lived here with their 11 children (2 children died in childhood). In 1900 they even had a white servant- Francis Manning (age 35). I'm assuming she was hiring to help with the children and the cleaning since the family owned their own business.
