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 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.

Dear Whitney,
There are several Desmonds with the names you are looking for in Greenwood and Holy Cross Cemetery. Can you supply Dates of Birth and death for your relatives. I am working with two other Desmond families.
We are trying to narrow down the Desmond Family in Brooklyn,. Can you help. Thank you.
Sincerely, Jerry Desmond.

Edward Desmond is my grandfather's brother. It is a little confusing to me but I have Ethel Klaus as my grandfather's mother. But that she was married to a Frederick Wagner and they had my grandfather. Email me and I will explain in detail what my mother has written about the situation.

I look forward to hearing from you.. This part of my family tree has been very confusing to me.

I also wanted to add that I have your grandfather Edward's siblings as Ethel,Eugene, and Frank. Like I said I'll explain what I know in email. I just wanted to add this to make sure we are talking about the same people.
