The LaCrosse City Directories of approx 1883-1889 indicate the KOHN=REINERT address was 115 South Nineteenth Street, rather than South Ninth Street. The City Directories also provide a different address for the KOHN=BECKER family (not at hand as I write, but it may have been North Third Street). The KOHN=REINERT address was then on the eastern edge of town, in the 6th Ward. This location might have allowed space for a dairy barn. The City Directory of 1884-85 listed John M KOHN's occupation as "dairy man," and the Wisconsin State Census of 1885 listed his occupation as "milk man." The location of the dairy barn is only a supposition, and I have not yet found any substantiation that John M owned property.
