I am looking for information on my partner's family. His father, John Gaffney (b. 1919 - d. 1983) married Lillian Vazquez and lived in New Jersey.
John and his family lived in Brooklyn and Manhattan in the early 1900s. John had two brothers (stepbrothers ?): Francis Gaffney, Jr. (b. 1917) and Howard Gaffney (b. 1921).
John's parents were Francis Gaffney, Sr. (b. 1899 - d. 1959) and Grace Uhlmann (b. 1899 - d. 1967).
Francis Sr.'s parents were Michael Gaffney (b. 1863 - d. 1929) and Margaret O'Brien (b. 1873 - d. 1955). Francis Sr. had 4 sisters and 1 brother: Ellen Gaffney (b. 1888), Helen Gaffney (b. 1890), Margaret Gaffney (b. 1892), Walter Gaffney (b. 1897), and Marion Gaffney (b. 1899). Grace's parents were Emma Mayer and Bill Uhlmann.
Michael Gaffney's father was John Gaffney (b. 1826). John came from Ireland in 1852. Margaret O'Brien's mother was Ellen Smith (b. 1851). Margaret O'Brien had a sister, Elizabeth O'Brien (b. 1867).
We would love to hear from anyone who may be linked to this family and may have additional information.
