UPDATED: Below- Hello I have found out that my 2xs Great grandmother's family name was Bogart? My Grandfather's sister who is 90 yrs old, said her name was possibly Jennie (Bogart) Smith from NY. I was told their parents were German and Dutch. She supposedly married a Joseph Smith. and they had my Great Grandfather Frank Joseph (but my aunt says his middle name was Grant) Smith born Feb 25, 1898 or 1895 in NYC, NY. and he died in Newburgh, NY August 25, 1963.
His wife was Agnes Marie (They called her Mary and Agnes) (Holahan/Houlihan/Holohan) Smith who was born in Astoria Long Island, NY B:March 8, 1899 in New York  D: November 9,1971 (or 19th) in New York (most likely Newburgh). They had 5 girls (Ruth, Helen, Genevieve(Jean), Marie, Loretta (Rita) and my grandpa Frank Joseph Smith born August 17, 1924 Brooklyn NY.
I have been trying for months to find something to help further my search. Thank you so much~Shanan
UPDATE:  My great aunt said the following "All I know is her mother's family she thinks were from Ireland. Her Great grandmother was a Barlow? Agnes's parents died when she was very young. 2 sisters (Mary and Margaret) went to live with a wealthy Aunt on Long island, and 2 sisters (Agnes, and Catherine "Aunt Kitty") and 1 brother went to a Catholic Orphanage type home in NY.  She said my great grandpa was born in New York on Feb 25, 1898 or 1895 in NYC, NY. and he died in Newburgh, NY August 25, 1963. His family was German-Dutch. She thinks his grandparents name was Bogart or the German spelling of it.
I don't know why I can not find hardly any information, and I'd really like to tell my 2 Great Aunt's before they pass away. They are 90 and 91 yrs old. Thank you so for any help. ~Shanan

Can you tell us the birth and death dates, birth and death place for Jennie (Bogart) Smith ?

I will see if my great aunt can recall anything else. This is the one part of my tree I can not get past, and to me it is the one side of the family that means the most to me.  Thank you and I will let you know if I can find out dates etc.
Hi =) I updated the question to reflect all my great aunt knows. She said she will continue to look for information for me. She is 90 yrs old though. i will keep at this, and thank you for anything you can find. ~Shanan

GG agnes did have a sister Margaret, but I believe her husband mother was the Bogart. My great Aunt said Agnes whose middle name was marie or mary, mothers maiden name should be Barlow, and they were Irish. She's 90 so she is trying to see if she can find or recall other info. I just found my grandpas side if the family after 27yrs of looking, as I had amnesia and long term memory loss from a brain njury/car accident shortly after my grandpa died. So I truly appreciate the help. Ill check back in the morning. It's 2am. :)
Sadly, I don't think that is the correct one. I updated the question to reflect everything my Great Aunt could recall. She is still trying to remember, but she is 90 yrs old. Thank you for any help.
