Question: My ancestor resided in Charlestown, Mass. in the 1830's and 1840's on Jay Street.  He was a blacksmith, and I would like to go to the location when I visit Boston.  Can you tell me where it was located?


Answer: Jay Street was laid out in Charlestown in 1818.  It was located between Chelsea Street to Edgeworth Street.  The street name was changed on October 29, 1866 to Tremont Street.
