If you haven't recieved an answer to your query on the old tire shop, I suggest that you contact the Genealogy Dept. of the Stark Co Library. Their e-mail address is "firstname.lastname@example.org". They have Canton City directories for the period you mention. I don't know if they will look on the basis of the info that you gave in your query or not. It may be too sketchy and they may not have time to cull through a lot of the directories.
