Their son received his education at Fishburne Military Academy, Waynesboro, Va., and Yale University in New Haven, CT. During World War I he served as a first lieutenant with the 106th infantry in Belgium and France, and was discharged April 1, 1919. He first married Helen Louis Wood and following her death he married Barbara Noyes Bolles. Mr. Smith was a sales correspondent for Oneida Silversmiths and later became Pacific coast manager for the Oneida based firm in California. He returned to the home office in Sherrill, NY in 1955 and retired in 1963. At the time of his death, August 1970, he was survived by his wife, one son, Leslie I. Smith and one daughter, Mrs. Robert D. (Helen) Hodgkin, all of Kenwood, NY.
The Ivanhurst was usually only open to guests in the summer as was the case with most of the boarding houses. They offered entertainment, card parties etc. and meals prepared by Harriet. A sun parlor was added in 1919 and an annex/cottage was built in 1927 to accommodate the Ivanhurst overflow. The Govern Brothers built a two car garage at the rear of the annex in 1935. Harriet was sick for a few years up until her death September 14, 1942. She and Charles are buried in the Stamford Cemetery.
The next owners of the Ivanhurst, following Harriet's death, were the Mueller's. I found numerous first names for the Mueller's; F.C., Frank, Fred, Carl and A.M so I am not sure who was actually on the deed. In 1957 Anthony “Toni” and Liesel Ott of Richfield or Stamford, CT bought the Ivanhurst and ran it as a hotel until about 1969 when the contents were auctioned off. The Ott's only purchased the Ivanhurst, the Mueller's retained the annex/cottage. William “Bill” and Emma Turner, of Long Island, bought it in 1973 and turned it into Maplehurst Adult Home. Next came Nancy Bellinger who named it the Seventh Heaven adult home. Then Pat Ryan and now Collin Ryan turned it into an apartment building. It is so nice that the building still looks great.
Thanks to Pat VanNortwick for the last and current owners.
