Sorry doesn't sound like we are. Most of my side are
from upstate NY Kingston area. the only ones who escaped
to the NY City in the bronx was my dad and myself.
No relatives in Manhattan or Queens that I am aware of.
The only other thing I can think of is my grandfather was
named Calvin Wyant , did he have Wyant brothers or cousins
in that area ? have you heard of Calvin Wyant ?
Have a great day.
