Elderly Paddock ladies, 1900, Watertown NY

Trying to research a family we're not directly related to, out of interest. My wife lived for several years in their estate on Paddock Street in Watertown, NY, and is very interested in the history of the house and those who lived there. We know that Jenny Dewey Paddock, wife of Frank Standish Paddock, died in this house sometime in the 1940s. Frank had apparently inherited the house from one of these two ladies. We had previously believed they were spinsters, but one or both of them may have been widows. We believe they were both Paddocks, though that might have been by marriage. The Paddocks were (and are) a prominent family in Watertown and this house at the corner of Paddock and Holcomb(?) was said to be built for these ladies.
We'd be very interested in any information that might be available on the Paddocks connected with this particular property.
