Marren, Jr.) and I now live in Media, PA although I was born in Brooklyn New York in 1952 in the Park Slope District (4th Street between 8th and 9th.) My grandfather's name is Thomas Patrick Marren and he lived on 9th Street between 8th and 9th. He immigrated to the United States in 1917 and first lived on Dean Street. My understanding is that he was impressed into the British Navy and his sister provided him with a suit of clothes and a ticket to the USA and so he "deserted" the British Navy. When in New York he started a successful saloon business, lost it, and then started up another only to lost this one to Prohibition. My grandfather, at the age of 36 plus, married and fathered 3 sons and 1 daughter. All are now deceased. I'm trying to discover the maiden name of my grandfather's wife who hailed from County Mayo. Any information you can provide would be helpful Thank you and God Bless. Jack Marren 267 239-3514, jjmarrenjr@gmail.com.
