Gerton Home
Submitted by Peggy Gordon Moore. This photograph is of the John H. Gerton home in 1905. I do not know where the house was actually located. My father was born as Gerton but later changed his name, I found a Gerton but he has died in the last few years. On the back of the picture which is too dark to read, it says the following:

John H. Gerton Residence
Mt. Vernon
Taken in Dec.1905

A utility pole is visible at the left hand corner of the photograph. Another power line is visible at the upstairs corner of the house and in the porch area and also along the sitting room window. The other power line one goes into kitchen.
