He was my grandfather and was born in Ireland. From what I understand, he married twice and had two families. The part of the family that included my mother was living in New York city when the children were born. I was born in Albany, while my mother (Adele) was living in Smithville, Saratoga County. I was put up for adoption and never met my mother. It would be helpful to know more about my mother's family-especially the Irish connections.
