I have recently acquired my mothers old newspapers reporting on her sister's death (house fire),along with her husband and 4 of her 5 children. In the artlcles on the house fire, it states the home was a 21 room mansion that had once been owned by the Frothingham family and "had recently been the home of Wendall Crosby", a home builder.

The fire occurred on September 28, 1962. The home was located on Hart Street in Beverly Farms, Mass. It was totally destroyed.

I am wondering if your "site" is the Frothingham's who had owned the home.
If you think it is, I would like some background on the home, if anyone knows anything about the home.

I was 7 years old when this tradegy occured and had visited my aunt and cousins in August 1962 (along with my parents). My cousins were so excited to be living in that home. My aunt and uncle were very proud of it. Little did we know, a month later, all but one would be dead.
Everything was lost in the fire, so any info would be appreciated.
thanks
Laurie Vaughn
