Adamsville Directory 1882-1890

In Mr. Norris F. Schneider's historical account of Adamsville which he wrote for the Times Recorder, April 13, 1969, he included a directory for the village which he had abstracted from a Zanesville city directory, but the date of this directory was not given. However, I have determined it must have been sometime between 1882 and 1890, because Dr. Henry Decker is not listed in the 1890 directory; he died January 8, 1892.
