My mother told me they lived up over 'the store'. My brother and I are the only ones left (he is 9 yrs older than me) and he can't recall anything about the business. I called the Michigan Funeral Directors Assoc. and they do not have historical records. My next call will be to the Detroit Historical Museum and Library. I'll let you know.

There's a list of funeral homes in the Polk Directory. Roscoe is not on it. Polk's Detroit city directory.

But he is on the list of undertakers. Polk's Detroit city directory.

My guess is they didn't own a funeral home, but possibly worked at A.H. Peters.
