Where is the location of Miss Stephanie Crawford, Cecil Jacobs, and the post office with page numbers and chapters?

I know it's eight houses down from Miss Dubose, but I need the page number saying that.

You can find the descriptions of both Cecil Jacobs' house and the location of the Maycomb Post Office about one-third of the way through Chapter 4 of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird (it's on page 35 of my very old paperback copy of the novel). Scout describes Cecil's home as part of her reasoning why he walked one mile out of the way each day just to avoid the Radley House.

     Cecil Jacobs, who lived at the far end of our street next door to the post office...

In Chapter 15, there is one more mention of the post office location. From Mrs. Dubose's house,

... there were eight more houses to the post office corner.

As for Miss Stephanie's house, she lives directly across the street from the Finch house, with Miss Maudie living one house to the north of Miss Stephanie (this can be visualized on eNotes's excellent Map of Maycomb in the link below). We know that Stephanie lives next door to Maudie since, on the night of Maudie's house fire,

Another fire truck appeared and stopped in front of Miss Stephanie Crawford's.

At the end of the story, Scout speculates that "if Miss Stephanie was watching from her upstairs window," she would have seen Scout being escorted by Boo Radley. I don't believe there is a more specific description of the exact location of Miss Stephanie's house.
