Re: Brooklyn Street name #usa

The street may have been re-named.  Search for Boyd St., Bklyn, 1897, or another year near that one.

I knew my mother grew up in a private house on Dahill Rd. in Brooklyn. I found her family in the 1920 census in a house with the same number, but the street was West St. I found a map of the same era as the census (on Steve Morse, via Ancestry) and compared it to a later Google map that contained Dahill Rd. I looked at train lines, the layout of streets and their names, and nearby churches, etc., and concluded that Dahill Rd. had been renamed.
