I do hope the original building is un-masked. My GGrandfather was Frank Corker. I have lived in Dublin for almost 10 years at the Captain Hardy Smith House. I came to Dublin because of the memory of my grandmother who's father was Frank Corker. Nana Bee as we grandchildren called her grew up the home now owned by Griffin Lovett.
