Chloe A. McCann House
20 Norwood Avenue, Buffalo, New York
Arlan Peters, History of 20 Norwood Avenue
George Howard died in August, 1886.
His heirs sold 20 Norwood Avenue to Chloe A. McCann on September 30, 1889. Chloe’s husband, John A. McCann was not named on the deed. It seems to have been a common practice to put a home in the wife’s name, perhaps to protect it from loss if the husband’s business should fail.
