Update 2

 I received another email from Anita responding to a couple of questions I had for her:

     Our former ranger does not recall now, but tends to think it was just initials, followed by "Jr." He does not have a photo, especially since he was dressed in 18th century garb at the time he saw the house. The person who showed him the room was quite elderly at the time, several years ago,and may no longer be alive.

  1. According to Winsor’s Memorial History of Boston, the doctor carved, “B. Church, Jr.”

    The current owners reportedly have a piece of glass installed over the carving to preserve it. I’ve been told the glint of the glass can be seen from the sidewalk below, but as many times as I’ve looked up, I haven’t seen it.
