1277 / 1279 Richmond Ave, near Deppe Pl

A duplex had once stood at 1277/1279 Richmond Ave on through 1930.

It was built by Francis Skerritt and originally was home to himself, his wife Hannah & their daughter Ethel on one side and on the other side Francis & Hannah's daughter Annie, her husband Hugh Ward & their son Frank.

By 1930 residing in the house were widowed Annie & son Frank Ward and on the side originally ocuppied by Francis & family there was living Annie's niece Marion nee Lewis with her husband George Lyons & their children Helen & Robert.

By 1940, Annie had passed & I've yet to locate son Frank or the Lyons'es.

I also haven't found #1277/1279 on Richmond Ave. 1940. It appears the address # may have changed due to development. I'm finding 1252, 1270, 1274 & 1288 but not 1277/79.

Deppe Pl was the nearest cross road in 1930.

Does anyone know how the numbers changed or what is there now?
