I’ve been bit and I’ve been tossed around
By every she-rat in this town

Monkey Man - The Rolling Stones

The 1910 census reveals my mysterious Hungarian/Polish grandfather & his family lived on Mack Avenue, near this jail on Russell street (now Eastern Market).  Thankfully he wasn’t IN jail. He was only 1 year old.
Prior to the jail being built this land was used as a cemetery. They dug up the bodies and relocated them elsewhere (Elmwood, Mt. Elliot & Woodmere). But when building Shed #1 for Eastern Market - and later when digging for the Fisher Freeway  - they discovered not ALL the bodies had been moved.  OOPS. Ghosts have been spotted, of course.
What a great photo - look at the armed guard on the roof. I’m going to pretend that’s my grandpa in the baby stroller.
By the 1920 census the family had moved to southwest Detroit - away from the jail, but right near a cemetery.  God, I love my family  (I live by a cemetery now…it’s in the genes).

You lied to me before.
