My Aunt and Uncle lived in South Haven Michigan for years before they both died at a good age. i can just remember they lived on a road called Route 5 zone 49090 could someone confirm if there is such a place. I visited there three times but dont know if the address is correct.
"Route 5" is probably Rural Route (RR) 5. Looking at it, it shows to be County Road (CR) 687, which runs north-south just east of South Haven.
and zone 49090 is the zip code used to mail stuff to someone in the US (as in South Haven, MI 49090)
Depends. The US Post Office had such a thing called "Zones" that predated the implementation of ZIP codes. If this address predates the 1963 implementation of ZIP codes, it is going to be hard to translate the zones and address routes from that time to the ZIP codes used today.
