In the “Wellman News” column published in the Iowa City Press-Citizen newspaper, dated November 14, 1923, the following was printed:
Mrs. I. N. Carr has sold her house to Mr. Tom O’Flaherty, the consideration being $4,500. Mr. Flaherty is to take possession on March 1st. Mrs. Carr and her son, Roy, will come here from California to transact some business after which Mrs. Carr will return to the west to make her home with her children, all of whom reside there with the exception of one son, Dr. Leslie Carr of Clermont, Iowa.
Note: Two of Margaret’s daughters were not living in California yet. Harriet Carr DeYoe lived in St. Francis, Kansas. Harriet would later move to Pomona, California after the death of her husband, Rev. J. Willard DeYoe, in 1927. Sylvia Carr Green lived in Grand Junction, Colorado, but later moved to Orange County, California.
