September 1951

Helen and Bertha Driscoll, were born in Cohoes, NY.  They were two of 14 brothers and sisters.  Their father, John, was born in Ireland. He was the son of Simon and Mary Driscoll. Born in New York, their mother, Mary McTighe, was the daughter of Thomas McTighe and Mary Golden. 

By 1900, only eight of the 14 children were living. Most family members spent some time working in textile mills. Two of the boys, James and Patrick, were in the United States Army in the very early 1900s, but cannot be found after that time. Helen and Bertha moved to New York City in the 1920s. Helen married Charles Staubach and Bertha married Michael Caccovo.

Please contact me if you have more information about this Driscoll family from Cohoes.
