My g-grandparents were Anna Cogan and Herman S. Gardepe. Children: John Francis and Sidney Joseph (my grandfather). Sidney was born in Red Bank, New Jersey in 1899. He would go back to Eatontown to visit relatives. Anna and Herman died when my grandfather was a small boy and his grandparents, the Cogans, raised him and his brother.
Anna's parents were Johanna Callaghan and John Paul Cogan. They were from Counties Cork and Kerry, Ireland. Anna had 2 brothers, William and John. John was blind.
Herman's parents were Herman Gardepe (from New Brunswick, Canada) and Sara Elizabeth Gregg (from Leads, England). I understand that there were other children besides Herman S. but I have no info on any of them.
If anyone has any information on any of these people or their descendants, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
