After the Elwells returned to Milwaukee, Mr. Elwell was employed by the Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad. Six years after moving into the mansion, the Elwell family moved to Waukesha and subsequently to Rockford, Illinois. They spent their golden years in Santa Clara, California with their daughter. The hardly broken-in mansion was purchased by Alfred Levi Cary in 1884. Mr. Cary, from Sterling, New York, came to Wisconsin to study law in the office of his uncle, a lawyer and Mayor of Racine. After relocating to Milwaukee, Cary was appointed special master in charge of litigation for the Northern Pacific Railroad. He was a member of the Milwaukee Common Council and Legislature, and a member of many civic organizations. He married Harriet Van Slyck
