Ownership history

1875. As land from John S. Morehouse.

Alexander E. Jenner, M. D., was born January 26, 1830, in Philadelphia. He studied medicine with his father, and attended Oberlin College for some time. He attended a course of lectures at Western Reserve College, Cleveland, Ohio, in 1850-1851, and then practiced medicine at Crestline, Ohio, until 1873, after having attended Bellevue Hospital Medical College, New York. He was appointed assistant surgeon of the twenty-eighth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and shortly afterward, surgeon of the Fifth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, with which he served until the close of the war. lie served as surgeon of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago Railroad for eleven years, and he was appointed superintendent of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Home, but felt compelled to resign. at the end of a few months, on account of political jealousies. He came to Dayton in 1874, and has been in the practice of his profession here ever since.
Mr. Jenner died in 1903.

Mr. Jenner lost the house back to Mr. Morehouse sometime in 1879 and it was then turned over to his wife Isabella Morehouse (presumably when John Morehouse died)
