Conn Family living in the Bronx
Posted by: Brenda Andrews (ID *****4725) Date: May 16, 2007 at 16:25:06

I have very little information about the Conn family other than what I have picked up from SS Death and two obit copy.

And I know nothing at all about New York State or any of the NY counties. I've only been able to locate two obit that shows any information and I've been unable to track down any of these names living in the towns that they are listed in.

Albert Conn b. 10 Aug 1904 in Ireland, he married:
Elizabeth Walker b. 9 July 1901 b.Markethill, Ireland, and I suspect they married in Ireland before moving to NY.
I suspect that Albert died in the Bronx, and Elizabeth moved to Ca. and was living with her son Robert when she passed. I've sent for her obit, but there wasn't one other than the mortuary heading. From the CA. Death Records her maiden name was Walker, and her mothers maiden name was Waddell.

This couple had three children.

1. Albert John Cecil Conn
born: 7 June 1930 Bronx, died Chester, Chesterfield Co. VA . 11 April 2006, below is a copy of his obit.

Albert J. Cecil Conn Jr., age 75, of Chester, Va., died Tuesday, April 11, 2006. He was born in New York, N.Y., where he was a past Grand Master with the Guiding Star Masons Lodge in the Bronx, N.Y. and was a retired general manager with Standard Motor Products of Virginia. His love for telling stories was a special gift, and he was a very devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He's survived by a wife of 11 years, Dorothy Conn of Chester; five children, Richard Conn of New York, N.Y., Alan Conn of Vero Beach, Fla., Cyndee Butler of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Pamela Gormley of Damarscotta, Maine, Deborah Mielke of Peekskill, N.Y.; two stepchildren, Michael Piorkowske of Long Island, N.Y. and John Piorkowske of Queens, N.Y.; 12 grandchildren; and five great- grandchildren. A memorial service will be held in honor of Mr. Conn on Friday, April 14, 3 p.m. at the J. T. Morriss & Son Funeral Home & Cremation Service of Chesterfield. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The American Diabetes or The American Heart Association.

3. Anna Marie Conn born 12 Feb 1936 Bronx, NY. married Ted Tonnisen in Ny and they also moved to Ontario Ca.
