Hello,

Your grandfather William is buried in Florida correct well in in that same cemetary is a Nora Dunn born February 28, 1881 died January 10, 1978.  From what I have found his mother was Nora Cocoran born in 1881 so this must be your Great Grandmother.  I did not find his father Patrick so I am beginning to think he may have passed in New Jersey.  Hope this helps a bit

None unfortunately... I'm actually looking for my great grandparents and not sure what part of Ireland they are from. Social Security Index shows birthplace for Margaret M DUNN[no maiden name listed ANYWHERE] DOB 09/29/1924 - 12/10/2006 and William C Dunn DOB 08/08/1920 - 11/02/2000 in New Jersey. Death was in my hometown of Fort Myers, FL.

They also have 2 children- Marie DUNN, and Arthur Joseph Dunn [dob unknown]

My mother Marie E Dunn SMITH was born Newark, New Jersey on 05/25/1949 [stilll living]. Had my brother in Astoria, New York [Kostantinos [GUS] Nicholas Georgiou. Married/Divorced Nicholas Costas Georgiou moved to 61 Cabana Avenue North Fort Myers, FL in 1975. Met my father William H Smith09/09/1938 - 06/09/2001, had me in 1991
and found out that BEHAN wasn't right so I'm back to square one...

and thank you! i appreciate the help :)

Nicole - might this be your grandmother's obituary?

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/news-press/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=20255917

Says her maiden name was Conley.  Also gives her parents' names.

And this one looks like your grandfather here:

Plugged his name and dates into the Social Security Applications and Claims Index on Ancestry, and came up with this:

William Charles Dunn
[William C Dunn] 
Gender: Male
Race: White
Birth Date: 8 Aug 1920
Birth Place: Newark, New Jersey
Death Date: 2 Nov 2000
Father: Patrick J Dunn
Mother: Nora Corcoran

Nicole,

It may be hard to believe but I have Margaret Mary Conley Dunn's ancestry traced back to Ireland, through her mother Regina, her grandfather Richard, and her great-grandfather Patrick Warren who was born in Ireland but settled in Jersey City, NJ.  You should be able to see this on ancestry.com but if not message me and I'll send more information.
