I have reached a dead end in my genealogical search. My Great grandfather is listed on my grandfather's birth certificate as Michael J McCloskey, married to Emma A. McCloskey, living at 1347 Palethorp Street in Philadelphia in May of 1896 when my grandfather (Charles) was born. Michael's occupation is listed as "Policeman." An inquiry with the Philadelhpia Police Department resulted in no additional information. I remember my father talking about an Uncle Joe, apparently a brother to Charles. Can anyone help me with information relating to Michael J. McCloskey?
