This history is incorrect, Colonial Cottage originally was created and owned by Benjamin Rich. He died in 1947, and maybe a Carla Rich inherited it, a bit of research proves by his WWII draft card, he owned colonial Cottage.

Norma Jo Cross Willoughby

The article names the original owner as Carla Rich. Her name was Clara, not Carla. She was my aunt, Clara Fisk Cross. My Uncle, Eddie Cross, was her first husband. They had 2 sons, Clyde and Eddie F. Cross. Clyde went down with his ship, USS Warrington, in WWII. Aunt Clara much later married Mr. Rich. I think his name was Ben. Colonial cottage was an excellent restaurant!
