Avery Johnson House - Milford, NH

Avery Johnson House - Milford, NH
Designed originally by the architect Philip M. Johnson (no - Cornelius Driscoll... see below), but because of its unusual roof, was prone to occasional leaks. Also retrofitted several times in attempts to make it more weather-tight and energy-efficient. Birthplace of Celia Cerulli Johnson Pashe.

Hi - I'm glad to hear from you. Somehow I missed your note - but it probably came at a time when my email notifications were down.
Avery was not married to Joanna (she was married to Robert Jonas, and she, Jonas and their daughter lived in a three-room cottage on the land that has now been torn down). Avery and his wife Francette lived in the big house, where Celia was born from that marriage. Francette's brothers were all in the financial business except one who was involved with horticulture - no architect.
So I think you must mean Joanna's (not Avery's wife) brother - who would not be Avery's brother-in-law. I don't know why I had the Philip M. Johnson information given me - but it was (I thought) what Fran told me. I married Francette some time after she divorced Avery.
As for your video of the stone cabin - that sounds really special. If you do find that... I'd love to see it. Truly. A good friend of mine lived in that cabin for years, and that's the last place I saw him - a few days before he died. I know that his last partner would love to see it as well.
Best regards
Michael

I've finally figured out the distinction between Johanna and Joanne - who was living at the Quarry the years I visited there, and married to Robert Jonas. I never met Johanna... she and Avery had divorced, and she had (I believe) moved to Hawaii long before. So my apologies for getting the two mixed up.

Celia is Fran and Avery's daughter - Tovar's younger sister.
