- "Next below Mr. Fray's is the house of Edward M. Davis, Sr., son-in-law of the late Lucretia Mott. Her Mrs. Mott lived for many years and here she died. This is called 'Roadside'. ...In 1850, Edward M. Davis, who was the husband of their daughter, Maria, with his brother-in-law, Thomas Mott, bought the 'Oak Farm' on the York Road. There was a small farm house, but additions were made rendering it a substantial country residence. Internally it had the charm of oddly-shaped rooms & queer passages, & steps up in one place,and down in another. The home had an air of hospitality and good cheer...Edward M. Wistar has lately bought the mansion called 'Roadside', which was so long the home of the Motts."
