My grandfather, Timothy Cornelius Battles, was from Brooklyn NY. His wife was Mary Lydon. They had three sons, Joseph, Edward and Matthew. My grandfather died July 1938 in Brooklyn. My father was Edward - he was the only son to marry. When we were young we were in St. Patrick's parish and lived on Willoughby Ave. Do any of these names make any connection? My father's parents both died well before I was born. As far as my sister and I know, there were no other Battles' alive. My father had 3 daughters and one has already passed, Mary Patrica. I am Lucille Kathleen and my other sister is Lorraine Joan. I believe my grandfather came from Donegal, but things are so sketchy I can't be sure of much. Would appreciate your response, be it negative or positive. God bless.
