Westford Road
Martha Wilkins1 locates the homestead of Joseph Munroe “on site now (ca. 1941) occupied by home of Mr & Mrs C. E. Crossland, Westford St.”

Lapham2 says that by his time (1970) the spot was occupied by “the home of Mrs. Alexander Johnson on Westford Street.”
This is 566 Westford Street, which Ruth Wilkins3 identifies as the Johnson place. If she’s right, this is the location of the original Munroe homestead in Billerica.
