This was the home of Thomas J. Grimes, a barbershop owner, from 1915 until his death in 1950. Two wives pre-deceased Thomas, but he lived in this home with each, along with an adopted son.  I assume that, after he lived alone,  Thomas took down the wall between the original two bedrooms to make himself one large bedroom.
