Paternal Grandparents: Andrew Koches and his wife Ann Ripko. Andrew and Ann gave birth to my Father, Andrew Louis Koches.
Andrew Louis Koches (my Dad) married Dorothy Ciringione (my Mom) in 1949 in New York City. They gave birth to 3 children: Paul Koches, Brian Koches, and Ellen Koches (me)
My Dad told me that my grandfather was of Hungarian descent and that our original last name was probably spelled different that what is today.
I'm going to ask my Dad for more details, if any. Birth dates and birth places, etc. of his parents. Hopefully this will help. I've only just begun researching my genealogy, so maybe something will match up.
