In 1878 Charles Murphy sold this lot to Maria Tasker for $1000 and Charles W. Tasker began living here until 1898. He was a dentist who had set up practice in Dover about 1869. Dr. Tasker died in 1923, but the house had been sold in 1919 to Fred Ireland. Fred’s widow Nellie sold it in 1930 to Fred Richardson, an insurance agent.
