My Driscoll and Staubach Families

 

Doris Staubach Quinn, my mother-in-law, is the daughter of Charles Staubach and Helen Driscoll.  This is her family.

 

Charles Staubach, a chauffeur, was born in NY.  His parents, Charles and Margaret, came to NYC from Germany around 1880 or 1890. Little else is known about him.  I do know that he was a Protestant and that he was an only child.  

 

Helen Driscoll, born Ellen Driscoll around 1887, was born in Cohoes, NY in Albany County.  She was one of 14 brothers and sisters.  Her father, John, was born in Ireland. He was the son of Simon and Mary Driscoll. Her mother, Mary McTighe, was born in NY.  By the 1900 census, only eight children were living.  According to baptismal records, the Driscolls attended St. Agnes in Cohoes.  I searched the city directories at the Cohoes Public Library and learned that Helen’s brothers, James and Patrick, served in the Army, around 1907.  Most of the family worked in a local textile mill. Simon may have relocated to Schenectady. Helen moved to NYC in 1923. Her sister, Bertha, moved to Albany and later to NYC.  Anne may have remained in Cohoes as she is buried in the St. Agnes Cemetery.  James may also have remained in the Cohoes area as there is a James buried in the St. Agnes Cemetery.    Doris remembers visiting “Uncle Jim” in Cohoes and spending time at Saratoga Lake.

 
Charles died on April 2, 1946 and Helen died on May 23, 1965. They are buried in the St. Raymond’s Cemetery in the Bronx.
 
I know very little about this family and additional information or corrections would be greatly appreciated.
