Re: Need 1848-52 New Orleans city directory lookup

In Reply to: Need 1848-52 New Orleans city directory lookup by John Dawson of 746

I have a CD titled "1851 Cohen's General Directory New Orleans/Lafayette Louisiana". There is only one Shannon listed in it: "Shannon, J.C.,grocer,53 New Levee", on page 174.

In the section on street names is this: "New Levee, prl. to river,from St. Louis, s. to Canal, t. my, s. from Canal to Race, in s. my."

"t. my" means third municipality and "s. my" is the second. I've had the CD for several years. I may have purchased it from Ancestry.com, but am not sure about this.
