    • Jerry was born in Massachusetts, but when his mother died due to complications of childbirth, his father couldn't work and take care of his son too. He therefore sent Jerry back to Cork, Ireland, to be raised with cousins. It is unknown exactly when or with whom he traveled back to Ireland. Just before he turned 21, Jerry returned to the United States. There he was reunited with his father, and introduced to his step-mother and half siblings. After a few years in Boston working at a chemical factory, he moved to Bronx, New York, where he met and married Agnes Long. He was introduced to Agnes through Dick Donovan, the husband of Agnes' sister Frances.
