Query

Title: Ledwith
Description: I'm trying to find any information about Ledwiths in New York around the era 1890-1920. My great grandfather travelled between Ireland and NY until 1910-1911. His name was Edward Ledwith, but I am looking for his brother, who lived in New York, who he was able to get work as a carpenter with. Unfortunately I don't know his name. I do know he had 2 daughters that apparently drowned in the Hudson river, and was connected to the Mayor (unsure which one) through his wife's family. I'm based in London, England and I've searched online but I have very little knowledge of New York History, or even where to start to search. Any help would be much appreciated!
