Note:

Lucy Battle wrote in 1845 that Miss Mallet(te) intended to build a house, and in 1848 referred to a house that Collier had recently built for her. As noted by Ruth Little in Town and Gown Architecture, Sally Mallette, daughter of an early settler in Chapel Hill, ran a student boarding house here, and after her brother Edward was killed in the Civil War, she raised his five children here. The modest, 2-story frame house was later the home of Dr. Thomas J. Wilson.
