    Ok, that makes sense. So at some point, she moves back to her parent's house on State Fair.

    Some time after 1940 because she was still in Saline on the 1940 census. Her father died in 44 and mother in 48; I can't find a death or divorce record for her husband, so I don't know if he went with her or not

    Thanks for finding all of that info. Edna had a daughter also named Edna born 1930 and a son Thomas in 1933. So that clears up the name question. It was no ordinary house, 3 story and had a roofed cement porch across the front. Wooden staircase, wide wood casings.

    I remember the house during the 60's when we drove past it weekly on my way to see my older sister. It was so different than the little bungalows around it that it still stands out in my memory

    I love finding those historical anomalies around town.

    Two aerial photos from 1967 and 1981. The house was razed sometime between.

    As I mentioned earlier, around the turn of the century, the land was owned by someone with the last name of Daniels. Coincidence or ancestor with a slight name change? From a 1904 atlas. Probably the house in question at the bottom center of the plot.

    Searching for Edna's father, Edward C Daniel, I see him listed in the 1915 phone book nearby, in Halfway (Eastpointe).

    And in 1918 at an address I can't make sense of. Would it be the name of an apartment building? The Lincoln phone exchange was based at a central office on Van Dyke just north of Gratiot.

    Christine's listing in the 1947 phone book, since Edward had already passed a few years earlier.

    Edward's father's name was Henry according to Edward and Christine's wedding cert.
    Also in 1900 Edward was still at home with Henry and family in Gratiot Twp, which I believe encompassed most of the far NE side and suburbs.

    Hmm. That was definitely Gratiot Twp at the time. And his name starts with H. Maybe father's and/or grandfather's farm?

    Henry(Heinrich) was born in Germany in 1827 so I would guess it was his farm purchased after he moved here.

    Default I'm looking for an address for the Andreski family mid 60's

    Trying to find Francis "Frank" Andreski family living in the Detroit area in the mid 60's. I'm looking for what high school their oldest, Frank L Andreski Jr. went to. Born 1947 so probably graduated 1964 or 1965?? Thanks for help with the address.

    Fisher Rd near Gratiot. I found this in the 1920 census. It was a farm in Gratiot Twp.
