Newport City Directories ?

Surnames: Brown, Dunham, Powell
Wanting to discover whether my Browns or Dunhams lived in Newport anytime between 1830-1869. Thought city directories might help, but I can't find any online. I do find a very few included in Cincinnati directories but not enough. Does anyone know where directories from that time frame might be found? Or a name of a good, reasonable genealogical researcher from the area who might be able to look them up at a historical society or a library? Names I am particulary interested in are: Joshua W Brown, William Dunham, Edmund Dunham, Watkin Powell. I know Joshua is in Cincinnati in 1846 or 48 and Powells later--I think I did find them in Newport once upon a time. My gggrandmother Lurena Dunham died in Newport in 1855 and I wonder with whom she was staying. Also think my Lucy Dunham met Joshua Brown in Newport. Thanks for any help you can send my way.
