Looking for leads as to where to look for information on a great uncle of mine. I was able to extract bits and pieces from the NY Times about him but have not found him, so to speak.

I don't know when he was born, assuming around 1895. Believe his parents were Malachi and Nora Kane

He was appointed to the NYC police force in 1918. In 1924 he was with the Truck Squad. In 1925, he was promoted to 3rd Grade Detective (the 11th Div? or Riverfront Squad?) In 1926, he was promoted to 2nd Grade and assigned to the Safe and Loft Squad. He was cited for act of Merit (18th Div). in 1833. In 1937, he was transferred to the Morissania Ave. Station in the Bronx. He retired in June 1942 (18th Div, 8th Det. Div).

Also trying to find info on his family as well as when he died . Hoping an obit will lead to other family members... any leads greatly appeciated..

Tks in advance..
