1. This appears to be an error-- it should read Edward Pendergast, Sr.


2011-11-23 03:49:53   The article above says he is the son of Edward Pendergast, Jr. Could this be a misprint? The article about Maureen M. Pendergast (Maureen McCoy) refers to her husband as being the son of Edward Pendergast, Sr. —KristinDixit
