In Reply to: Looking for ancestors of John Koch m. Anna T. O'brien lived in Rochester N.Y. by Mary Albertsman of 1914

Hi. I'm not related to this family. I found a newspaper article at http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html describing the marriage of John Koch & Anna T. O'Brien:

Rochester NY Democrat Chronicle 1922 (Sunday, Oct 8)- KOCH-O'BRIEN - On Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock at St. Boniface Church. Miss Anna T. O'Brien of Canadaigua, became the bride of John J. Koch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Koch of 68 Benton street... The attendants were Miss Rosalin Koch, sister of the bridegroom...and August Koch, brother of the bridegroom. The ushers were George Roth and Herman Koch... Prenuptial events included a variety shower given by Mrs. Henry Roth, a linen shower by the Misses Germaine? and L?rose Rugy, and a luncheon by Joseph Ruby. After a short wedding trip the couple will be at home at Lakeville.

You could order the marriage license from the State of NY for this couple and it should list the parents' names, etc. Here is this family in 1930:
