Alberta Joy Gardner Pedigree Chart

Pedigree Chart for Alberta Joy Gardner

Alberta Joy (Gardner) Brown was the only child of Helen Francis Coyle and Nathaniel Gardner. Helen and Nathaniel were both born in New York City but came from very different backgrounds. They met when they both worked for the Western Union Telegraph Company. Helen's Irish Catholic family and Nathaniel's Austrian Jewish family did not approve of their marriage but Helen and Nathaniel did not let that stop them. They married and raised a daughter in the Bronx until 1940 when they bought a little house in the country in Germantown, New York. Helen and Joy lived in Germantown. Nathaniel stayed in a little place in New York City during the week and took the train to Germantown on weekends. The country air was supposed to improve his health. He planned to retire and join his small family there full time but World War II began and he was needed as a telegrapher. Unfortunately, when he did retire he was only retired a short while when he died. Helen and Joy both remained in Germantown for the rest of their lives.


Helen Francis Coyle b. 9 January 1897 in New York City, was the oldest of seven children of Michael &  Mary Josephine (Mullane) Coyle.Both her parents were born in Ireland but met in New York City.  Michael & Mary Jo met at a boarding house. He saw her coming down the staircase and fell in love with her.  Michael was a Baker. Helen helped in the bakery in the mornings before school; mixing the dough and making deliveries. All seven children were born at home, in New York City. There were five daughters and two sons. The first son lived only a short time. The second son, Thomas Coyle, b. c. 1904,  left the family and we have been unable to discover what happened to him.Of the daughters, only Helen had any children. Her only child was Alberta Joy (Gardner) Brown.
