Alice Tompkins, David Maxwell, Andrew Maxwell heirs to Frank Bee estate - real estate transaction
According to a letter from Bill Dillard written in August, 2011, "I believe the Tompkins house was a single story 'Victorian Style' house with a covered porch acros the front and on one side of the house. ..Mrs. Tompkins moved when the old man passed away and the house was torn down in 1962 when the property sold. I don't know much more about the history of the property, only that it was referred to as the Tompkins Ranch."
