I have reached a major brickwall with my Martindale ancestors and was hoping someone could help. My great great grandfather was George William Martindale, who was born in Ansonia, CT in 1883. His father was William Martindale who was also born Ansonia and his mother was Ellen Hickey, an immigrant from Ireland. This is as far back as I can prove. When George was a young boy, his family lived in Brooklyn,NY. I am aware of another Martindale family that lived in Brooklyn and Ansonia as well but I have no evidence of them being related. The family to which I am referring is that of John Martindale and his wife Emily and their many children. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give!
