Some Deed Plots from the 1920s

Minnie Ellen Hastings Melson, with her sisters, inherited the land of their father Levin Hastings.  They owned a large part of Delmar in the Bi-state Blvd, Grove Str, Jewell St out to 8th street area of Delmar and in the 1920s sold it off in lots.  Below are a few plots that were included with the deed registration.  It was in the 1920s that Hastings street became Delaware Ave and Mill St became Lincoln.  Also Third street became better known as State Highway  (Bi-State)
