Upstairs there were small rooms totaling 4 in number. On 1789, Elisha Mann purchased the house from Aaron Blatchley. After a week, Mann was able to sell the property to John Henderson, her father-in-law.

On January 29, 1791, Elisha Mann bought half of the estate from John Henderson, while the other half of it is registered on his name. On February 2, 1791 sold her half to Lyman Munger. He was married to Elizabeth Coe. Elizabeth Munger died on April 29, 1792. On July, 1792, John Henderson owned the entire estate. He sold it to his brother Jeheil.
