Our greatgrandparents are buried in St. Raymond's Cemetery, here in the Bronx, NY in what we call the old section. Uncle Gene and his first wife Adele are also buried there. Adele was not a well woman and she died at an early age, then our Great Uncle Gene married a friend of his first wife's after her husband died Rita and they were married until his death. (He was hit by a car and he pushed Rita out of the way) He may of had a heart attack because of the accident so we are not sure of the exact reason how he died. I will see if my parents have the exact dates for us. My grandparents are also buried at St. Raymond's in the new section. I don't know anything about Thomas except for what I told you.
Our grandparents brother Peter was killed by a gun that he and some friends found. The story I have been told was the gun was rusty or stuck and the friends played with it until it went off and hit Peter. My father seems to think a friend was with him and if they would have told a grownup at the time Peter would have lived. ( again I have no way of proving this). I am sure the story to some part is true, since my father and grandmother told the story. I always tell this story since guns kill so many innocent people today and I want people to know how long this has been going on, this happened sometime around 1915 - 1925, again I am not positive but I do think he was the second child which would make him born around 1902 since, my grandfather was 1904 and your grandmother was 1906 and Gene was 1900.
As far as the grandchildren:

Peter is next and he is Jean's oldest and his birthday is May 26th, 1950.
He was married and now is divorced and has two (2) grown sons Peter and Thomas.
