John Charles Costello born and died in NYC also lived in Jersey City, NJ and Brooklyn, NY. Initially had some employ as a lawyer (and possibly political connection) in NYC. Was an amateur stage actor, silent movie actor, and later professional stage actor usually under the name John Charles, in New York. New details from fellow genealogy associates would be appreciated. Extensive research into film credits (and film locations) and NYC stage credits has identified two other silent screen and stage actors with similar names, but subtle differences in where born & died and dates, thus leading to credit ambiguities.
