I went downtown to look for your addresses, and, as I suspected, those buildings are long gone. That whole area is a maze of highway off and on ramps. But, close to where those addresses used to be were two interesting buildings that date to that time period, Cleve. Grays Armory, and closer, a church labeled 1904 and St Maron Catholic Church Maronite Rite. If your ancestors were catholic, I'll bet this was their church, as it is on Carnegie alomst exactly where E. 13th meets it. I got digital photos of each, email me if you want them. Plus check this site.. Grays. The book "The Corpse in the Cellar" by John Stark Bellamy II (the 3rd of his books on Cleve. murders and tragedies)has a tale in it about the kidnapping and murder of a 3 yr old boy in 1907. That murder occured just a few blocks away from where your people lived, and was big news. (The boy's Jewish neighborhood was gradually turning into an Italian one, according to my book copy of the Cleve Encyc of History) That particular area is now the Cuyahoga Comm College campus. Run a search of"Encyclopedia of Cleveland History" for more stuff. The closest cemetery is the very old Erie St Ceme, you may wish to look into that as well.
