My grandmother was the youngest child, so mom older, then my mother was her youngest born after she was 40. My grandmother was born in the 1880's. (some fudging of date by her) so we're dealing with an older woman filling me in on what bits she remembered when I was around 10 yr old. that there were (6?) brothers. 5 came here, one went to Australia. One brother owned a tavern in Newark NJ. that's all I have. he pops up on the us census-married to Julia (Comeskey) and living in New Brunswick, NJ. I sent a separate email to join the e-circle if it's still around. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
