Just starting the research. I live in California but was born in New York. My father, Thomas George Hogan was the youngest of ten children of Thomas McGovern Hogan and Mary Viola (sorry I do not know grandmas maiden name). My mother, Marjorie Ann Kennedy was an only child of Frank Kennedy (who moved to Los Angeles in the 1940's), and Grandamother "Goldie", sorry I can't remember her maiden name either. My father and mother moved my sister Donna Patricia and I to Califonia in the 1950's. After my fathers death, my mother and sister returned to New York, in 1969.
I married Glenda McMillian Howe in 1967 and we had Thomas Charles Hogan, January 1968. After our divorce in 1969 Glenda and Thomas Charles moved to Florida where they both reside.
I married again in 1976 with Katherine Lee Williams a native Californian. We have two children. Joshua Kennedy born March 1980 and Jillian Patricia born January 1982.
We have not been to up state New York since the early 1980's. I have not spoken with anyone about creating a family tree. Lately, I have been questioning and trying to remember all my relatives. I do not remember seeing my grandfather, I believe his name was the same as mine, because I recently received a copy of my birth certificate, and I was listed as Thomas McGovern Hogan, II.
I never knew that I was a II. Anyway, it has got me started researching. I plan on making this an active website. Perhaps updating it weekly, or monthly if its slow going.
Contact me through the email, if you have any information.
