The 1887 city directory indicates that Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Rogers resided at this address. The 1892, 1894, 1896, and 1898 city directories indicate that Mr. and Mrs. George W. Rogers resided at this address.

The 1902 Central Presbyterian Church directory indicates that Hugh Martin, Emily C. Martin, George F. Martin, and Miss Belle Martin resided at this address. The 1930 city directory indicates that Mrs. Ursula Drexel, the widow of Frank X. Drexel, resided at this address.

A subsequently demolished house at this address was where U. S. Post Office robber and auto thief Tommy Carroll ( -1934) rented the upper floor from the Vogel family during the Spring and Summer of 1932 and where he lived with the singer Radio Sally Bennett. Tommy Carroll, a expert gunman, was involved in auto theft, robbery and murder. First married in 1925 to his girlfriend, Viola _?_ Carroll, Tommy Carroll left his wife for Sally Bennet in 1932, then in late 1933, left Sally Bennet for Jean Delaney Crompton, the sister of Helen Delaney Reilly, the wife of Pat Reilly, the errand boy and driver for the Dillinger gang. Tommy Carroll was part of the gang of George "Baby Face" Nelson (1908-1934) when John Dillinger ( -1934) joined it.

Other gang members were Charles Fisher, Earl Doyle, Edward Bentz, and Homer Van Meter. Carroll shot and killed Detective H. C. Perrow of San Antonio, Texas, during a robbery in late 1932. Carroll was shot during a gun fight by police in Waterloo, Iowa, and was buried at Oakland Cemetery. [1] [1]
