The Lilacs

Barbara O. Metzger & Susan O. Cooney  

Barbara and Susan were Richard & Dorothy Odiorne’s daughters and, as such, they inherited The Lilacs upon the death of their father. However, having no need for the grand old house, sold it soon thereafter.

As a matter of interest, Barbara was 12 years old when her family moved to The Lilacs in 1943 and, except for a one year period following her marriage, spent the rest of her life on this property, until her death in late 2003.
