The home of Silas Heston Driskell is listed in the 1930 census as being on Maple Street in Cloverport, Kentucky. Unfortunately, no house numbers are given. The home on the left above is clearly the home of Silas Heston Driskell, as witnessed by the house next door that can be seen behind Rosa and Lilly in the above photo.


The home of Richard Driskell in Cloverport is shown above and is listed in the 1930 census as being on Houston Street and on the census sheets only six homes distant from Silas Heston's house. Maple Street Ts into Houston and just around the corner on Houston I have located what I think to be Richard's home, at 104 E. Houston, but it is so hidden by trees and shrubs as to be impossible to identify beyond a doubt. An aerial image shows that it is at least the correct shape to be Richard's.
