Remarks: S. Laughlin is listed as an El Paso residential client in an undated Trost & Trost notebook now in the collection of Trost family. A complete search of the El Paso City Directories has not been made, but S. Laughlin was not listed in the Directories of 1910, 1915, 1920 or 1925. Residential may refer to an apartment building client.

A check of the city directory in 1909 has the Laughlin listed at 611 N. El Paso and in 1909 611 N. Oregon street. Arizona Avenue dead-ends into Oregon Street  and El Paso Street runs parallel. The house is probably gone.
