Later they lived at the White House community called Otter Creek, and operated a store, post office and telephone exchange there. They later moved to a log house on the Clover Villa Farm where they lived until the big house was built. Ellbridge graduated from Rutherford College at Connelly Springs, Burke County, North Carolina with a BS Degree in Civil Engineering in the spring of 1881.
