From the Everything Croton mailbox, a request seeking online village directories for Croton 1914 and Ossining, also 1914.

Response: Sorry....don't think there is a Croton directory for 1914 online anywhere but your best bet is to contact THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY at

For Ossining directories, you should really contact THE OSSINING HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM.  

Good luck.
