Remarks: A check of the El Paso city directory of 1908 found that it listed the resident as T. J. Morgan; a note in the El Paso Public Library Trost index states: 1912 occupied by George R. LeBaron. It would appear that J. J. Nesom lived in the house a relatively brief time, and that it then became rental property.
