Lemuel Durfee's will identifies Joseph Smith Sr.'s Manchester property as belonging to Smith. Durfee became the Smith's landlord after the Smith's home was taken from them due to shading dealings by a land agent. Durfee saved the Smith's home by purchasing their property and renting it to them to recover his investment.
