Help Please on deciphering the listings in the following batch.
US—City and Business Directories, 1749–1990 [Part C] [M347-K7T]
The fist group(?) of names begins 'Carlsbad, Bryant Clara Mrs'.
This could be Bryant Carlsbad and his wife , Mrs. Clara OR it could be Mrs Bryant Clara Carlsbad.
the third line is similar but with no 'Mrs' and the 'Carlsbad' indicated by dashes -------
The rest of the batch continues the same way - a surname followed by one or more other names set off with dashes.
Is there any way to be sure what the following names are?
