The Avant, Leak, and Higgenbotham families lived along South Catherwood and Sheridan Avenues for years. In this undated mid-twentieth century photo, Toy Avant stands on his front porch at 132 South Catherwood Avenue. This modest home still stands today and is one block north of the Pennsy Trail (former Pennsylvania Rail Line). The Higgenbothams and Leaks were members of the the First Baptist Church (231 Good Avenue) for many decades.
