      Scott, just read your comment. If your still out there, my father was a good friend of your Granpa. I knew Georege and watched him direct traffic in the middle of Washington Street in the middle of winter. Punishment for being a rebel. Ddid you know your grandpa?

        Hi Robert!

        I had checked back on this site several times and never saw a response so it was great to see your post.
        Yes I knew my Grandfather. We moved in with him and my Grandmother in Waldwick when I was very young.
        He passed away in the late 80’s and I have lived in Southern California since 1983. I would love to hear any stories about my Grandfather that you could share

        thank you

        Hey Connecticut,

        Have a web site on Hoboken history. fullmoonoverhoboken.com where you can
        read (FREE) most of our history. Hoboken Captains, Fore and Aft by M.A. O’Brien
        was out in 1981 loaded with our history, from the first resident here meeting the
        Lenape all the way to our century. Much was plagiarized by the so called MUSEUM.
        Jersey City took it and had whole shows with it. The Museum just stole whatever
        they could with the help of Mayor Roberts, used it, plowed through eleven copyrights
        and put somebody elses name on it. I am still boycotting same museum.I tried to sue,
        the lawyers want thousands upon thousands. Check out the web site and you will see
        much….Margaret[quote comment=”175511″]Margaret, just read your comment. I’m new to this website, haven’t been to the museum.

        600 page manuscript with pictures and lithographs plagiarized,
        twelve years of research and writing, then the Curator said I
        was crazy and “never wrote anything down” “on medication”
        etc. while he sold it all and gave it all away. My title of “Historian”
        was given to the mayor’s friend who owned a bar where they
        both got sloshed ….I retreived some of it and fullmoonoverhoboken.
        was the result…Margaret[quote comment=”198282″]Hey Connecticut,Have a web site on Hoboken history. fullmoonoverhoboken.com where you canread (FREE) most of our history.

    To whomever it may concern,
    I am wirting to you to ask for help. I am completing my family history search and I have found that my uncle Fr George Leo Fitzpatrick who served in the hoboken community till 1941 and was there in Jan 1907. I am trying to find out more about him as my family left hoboken and came back to ireland when my grandfather died (gorge’s brother). I believe that he later died in 1941. (His name may have been Fr Leo george Fitzpatrick). Also my father was born in Hoboken and I think that he may have been baptised in that church also around August 1905. Also I believe my grandfather William Fitzpatrick (Fr Ftizpatrick’s brother) and my grandmother Ellen Coyle may also have married there, as we have heard that Fr fitzpatrick had married them somewhere around 1902-1906. Then later William Fitzpatrick died and maybe you may have information on that too as he died around 1905-1906.
    I have read this passage,

    ” Updated with information received via e-mail from David Bohn January 9, 2009: — “… the 1915 Wangerin-Weickhardt company brochure includes a photo of the organ (p.27), a listing of the organ (page 68), _and_ a testimonial from Gorge I. Fitzpatrick, Associate Pastor of Our Lady of Grace Church (page 57). That would suggest that they had _something_ to do with building the organ. I’ve got a note in my files that Weickhardt-Wangerin built casework for some of Wirsching’s organs; perhaps they did so for Hoboken?” (James Cook. 2009-01-09).”

    Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated as I know nothing about my grandparents and where my father was baptised or anything about my grandfathers death and my uncle who was a priest. I live in Londonderry in Northern Ireland as my grandmother ellen moved back to here after my grandfather died.

    Mr Kenneth J Fitzpatrick
