Preserving Yesterday, Living Today

In 1915 Roger’s oldest son, Abendego (1893 – 1958) took ownership  of  his  father’s  section  of  the duplex upon his marriage to Maggie Faulkner (1895 – 1920). During this period Abendego and Maggie decided to separate their home from Edward’s half of the duplex and roll it to the far east corner of the Mouland property creating a fully detached single dwelling house. Edward’s section of the duplex remained where is stands today. Currently the property retains its original clapboard, eave boards, two over two windows and simple window trims, which are all representative of a Mockbeggar home in the late 19th century.
