In this circa 1906 photograph, the family of Frank and Emma Roehm stand in front of their home at 1320 Villa Street. This south side street was located in a German neighborhood just north of Pleasant Run and east of South State Avenue. Roehm (1874-1954) , a son of German immigrants, made his living as house carpenter and contractor. He and his wife Emma Leota (Coble) Roehm (1875-1951 ) began their married life in this home where their three children (Robert, Frances Mary, and Dorothy Leota) were born. Typical of the area, the 1 1/2-story Folk Victorian cottage was plain, but ornamented with decorative brackets and gable vents, a side porch with gingerbread trim and turned posts, and gingerbread in the gable. After owning this home for about a decade, the Roehms moved four blocks west where the bought a larger house at 1230 Evison Street. The couple remained there the rest of their lives.
