John: My grandfather was Joseph Dollard who, I believe was born in or around Troy NY.I believe he was born around 1880.He moved to Jersey City and married Margaret Sullivan, there my father John was born. I know Joseph had two brothers, John and Edward. I also know that Joseph's mother remarried to someone named Anderson.They were in show business, and at one time played the palace theater in NYC. Sorry I don't have any documentation on any of this, it's all from my mothers memory. Good luck with your hunting.
