These are some of the Land Conveyances I found for the house. I searched through a box full of land conveyances for the Block number 1892, I will admit I might have overlooked a few, since these are not in order by an address number but simply a block number. The way i knew these were for 99 Ryerson st was because the house is 380 feet from Myrtle ave, on each land conveyances there is a map which is not to scale but does indicate how many feet the house they are referring to is from the corner. I found 13 different conveyances for the house, each stating who was selling the house and who was buying the house. I found Louisa Whitman Walt’s mother had purchased the house on May of 1855. On each conveyance below i have zoomed in on the map which shows the house is 380 feet from the corner, in the case where there were multiple conveyances for one year i simply zoomed in on the date.


1855 May ; Louisa Whitman buys the house.


1855 Nov; Louisa Whitman sells the house.

You can see here now she is a widow; this is because Walter H. Whitman died at this house.
