Dear Michelle,

Try contacting the Burton Historical Collection (part of the main Detroit Public Library) at the following website. They have copies of the city directories and I think the wards may be listed in there-not sure.

Do you know that Michigan has the soundex for those years which, when you find your names, you will have the enumeration district, sheet number and line number for the censuses. Much easier than looking through the whole ward.
