Remarks: J. F. Nagley listed in El Paso city directory 1906-1907 at 705 North El Paso; 1908-1910, 111 North St. Vrain; 1911-1915 not listed.
The name J. E. Nagley appears on the drawing, and also appears in an undated Trost & Trost notebook now owned by Trost family. However, Trost & Trost draftsmen have been known to make errors in the spelling of proper names.
The house at 111 North St. Vrain is not this design, but may be a Trost & Trost. It is an American Foursquare; the brick course separating the stories is similar to the Malcolmson house, El Paso; the pierced brick balustrade of the front porch is similar to the Goggin house, El Paso. The interior was not inspected by the authors.
