My ggrandfather: Joseph Francis Cosgrove (who was only known as Frank Leo Cosgrove) bn. April 6, 1887 in Brooklyn. Papa married Catharine TOTTEN. Son of Frank (bn circ. 1854 in NY) and Jane CHAPPELL(sic) bn circ. 1860 in England. Other children of Frank and Jane: Harry bn. 1891 NY James A. bn 1891 NY m. Delia MCGOVERN Jennie F. bn 1885 NY
Jennie is the "lost" sibling, as no one in our family knew "Papa" had a sister. She still showed to be living with her family in 1900. I have been unable to locate any birth record on Jennie, burials or deaths on Frank and Jane. Frank (father) shows his parents to have been born in Ireland, but that is the extent. An older family remember claimed there was a Ronnie (female) Garrigan who was related on either the Cosgrove or Chappell side, which doesn't help! Was told the Cosgrove's owned a candy store in Brooklyn, most likely. Someone out there HAS to be connected!
