      Operated a blacksmith shop set on part of lot #137 of the original plan of Leavenworth. A photo of three building together with a team of horses show the Ott shop to be the center building in this photo. The photo is well distributed. The Ott building was reduced over time leaving only a piece of the building frame. For many years in the late 1980-2000 part of this frame was used as part of the Leavenworth sign. It no longer exists. Pieces of wood and photos thereof of the original was collected and shared with distant relatives. The wood pieces were salvaged by Bobby Lahue for his relatives.

      When viewing the 3 building photo and team of horses, the building on the far L was a warehouse and feed store operated by the Huff family and others. The building on the far R was the Jenner Blacksmith Shop, i.e. Sam Jenner. The person driving the team of horses is Pausy Frans.

      The Ott shop was parted with 1/30/1907 which is also the year Greenberry died, 3/8/1907. The shop sat on the west 1/2 of lot 137. Besides Blacksmithing they also dealt in farm implements. A Mr. Dan Booth ran the shop thereafter for an uncertain amount of time. The last person to operate the shop was Craig "Hosey" Richardson.

      Greenberry and his wife owned and lived on lot 85 on Jackson Street, down near the Big Spring in Leavenworth. Sherman and his wife Adeline lived on a lot on Front Street, #26. This faced the river. They also owned lots 171, 174, 175, 179, 180 and 181. These faced Spring Street which is also known as "Smokey Road". John Ott and his wife Phoebe lived on lot 84 next to father and mother.

      Sherman's wife Adeline was known in the community as "AD".
