    My Grandfather and Grandmother, Andrew and Louise Iverson along with more children than the house should be able to hold lived in the old “Stone House” in East Davenport. I haven’t seen mention of this old landmark. Is it still standing?

    Thank you for contacting us with your inquiry. I have forwarded it to the people in Davenport that may be able to answer your question. You should be hearing from them soon.
