I would certainly be happy to exchange any information I can, although, I'm not sure how much help I will be. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
. My branch of the Desmond family came from Cork, Cork, Ireland>WI>NE>Iowa>UT and I have no clue which kids stayed where. I'm not sure if or for how long they resided in NY. I looked through the two generations of information (1839-1909) that I have and there is no Charles Desmond. I'm sure that you have already been told the best place to look for information would be birth/death certificates and Census records. I would be glad to connect up with others looking for the Desmonds (especially if they are looking in Ireland). Well, good luck to you and I hope you find what you're looking for. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
Here's a list of all the information on the Desmonds that I have.
