In 1887 this new, "first class" house and its next-door neighbor, "all improvements complete", were offered for sale by Magilligan in an advertisement placed in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
Oddly, the address of this house does not appear in the 1897 Lain's Brooklyn Directory.
In 1898, on the very same day, an interesting conjunction of advertisements appeared in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle: a "Situation Wanted", from an employee of 759 Carroll Street, and also a "Help Wanted" from the residents, seeking a replacement employee. One hopes that the termination of the business relationship was amicable:
At any rate, it is clear that the residents in 1898 included two children. A subsequent "Help Wanted" advertisement from May 12, 1902, requested a "Swedish girl" with flexibility to accompany the family to the country.
It is quite possible that the two children of the 1898 "Help Wanted" advertisement included Maguerite Limond and William Stewart Limond, Jr., children of Mr. and Mrs. William Stewart Limond. Some years later, in 1914, the New York Times recorded the marriage of Miss Marguerite Limond to the Rev. H. A. L. Sadtler in St. Johns Episcopal Church. The wedding reception was held at 759 Carroll Street, the home of the bride's parents:
Maguerite Limond Sadtler's husband was for many years rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Rahway, New Jersey. But in June, 1939, Rev. Sadtler died, and his wife Marguerite and daughters Margaret and Jean moved back to Marguerite's childhood home, 759 Carroll Street, to live with Marguerite's by-then-widowed mother. Mrs. Limond herself died in October, 1939, and her passing was noted in the New York Times:
Marguerite remained at 759 Carroll Street, the house where she grew up. On January 4, 1942, the New York Times recorded the wedding of her daughter, Jean Sadtler:
Thus can one house shelter succeeding generations of the same family over the years.
