Dear Michael: In response to subject, I do not have much to offer that he probably already knows. But just in case I can tell what I know, if it is the same family that lived in Broadway Flushing, NY as follows:
Albert Brabazon who would be his grandfather had two children Joan and Robert. I knew Joan, who I occasionally met at various school social functions. Albert Brabazon was from England and had no connection to my family according to my father. They met on several occasion's. My recollection was that he was an inventor and filed patents on his inventions. His son Robert was manager of Hertz in Sarasota FL. I never met him, but on several occasion's I was asked if I was related to him. Joan was a popular young lady who attended St. Agnes HS in College Pt or Flushing HS as I recall. But lost track of her after High School years.
