The Sammises welcomed their daughter Willa back home in 1941 along with two grandchildren. The family remained in the house until the 1950s. In these historic images, you can see Charles Sammis and Babe parked in front of 256 South Emerson around 1915. If you look closely you can see "Parcel Post" on the carriage. The other two historic images show Charles Sammis next to his daughter Willa in the back and side yard around 1948. These historic images are courtesy of David Bailey.
