Sorry I can't help with any telephone directories but thank you for the offer of doing a lookup in the 1958 one you have. I would be interested in entries for James Roach.

Thank you.
Jo

Hi Kenneth,

Could you look in your directory and see if you have an Elizabeth Gould? Could have gone by Betty, or Robert Gould.

Thank you! Please reply to darlene@deadams.com

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been away from genealogy for a while. My 1984 phone book is for suburban Detroit and does not list this school. A search on the web using google finds a current day Benjamin Franklin Middle School
at
33555 Annapolis Street
Wayne, MI 48184-2478
(734) 419-2402

There was also a 19th C. Benjamin Franklin School just off Pine on Brooklyn St.since torn down, Here is the link -
Bartleby the Scrivener - Franklin School
This is the Benjamin Franklin School as it appeared around 1881: Photo courtesy Burton Historical Collection, Detroit Public Library. It once stood on the west side of Brooklyn Street just south of Pine. ...

Hi Ken,
Thank you for responding. Would you be able to look up another name? The surname is Lysinger and I am particularly interested in Grace Lysinger, Elaine Lysinger and Emma Lysinger.
Thank you!

Hi -
No Lysinger listings. The directory I have is for Suburban Detroit not the city.
