Need address of location and birth record to solve this

Helping someone back in Mahoning Co, Ohio solve a mystery. Looking for verification of the birth of a John Michael Morrison born either late May or June 1, 1917 in Bernalillo County New Mexico, a son of Samuel Burdell Morrison (living in Ohio) and Helen Furney Morrison (wife). They were not from the area however this was Helen's first child and do not understand why she left Ohio to give birth here? Possible relatives here? Sad case of events for this family - Helen was widowed by Nov 1917 (in Ohio) and with infant child, and went on to marry in Ohio Wm Obendorfer prior to 1920. Per 1925 city directory, Helen Furney Morrison Obendorfer is found living in New Mexico as:

Mrs Helen F Obendorfer
Name: Mrs Helen F Obendorfer
Gender: Female
Residence Year: 1925
Street address: 609 S 1st
Residence Place: Albuquerque, New Mexico
Publication Title: Albuquerque, New Mexico, City Directory, 1925

Helen died in 1926 in Mahoning Co Ohio and all her children were put in an orphage.

A great clue would know who lived at the location of 609 S 1st per either census records, or other city directories. Any help greatly appreciated.
