Birth: Feb., 1849
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 30, 1903
Coney Island
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA

Son of Peter Gorman and Ellen Quinn; brother of Thomas R.(Winifred Frances Leonard), John, Stephen, Peter, and Mary Ellen [Patrick McAndrews]. Father of Gertrude A. Gorman and Joseph Gorman Jr. Definitely one of the most colorful members of the family, and a particular favorite. From "1886 Professional Criminals in America" ..."He is one of the smartest pickpockets in America, and a man well worth knowing." He eventually worked as a detective on the Iron Pier, Coney Island, helping the police catch pickpockets. Irony on the Iron Pier. Buried with father Peter, mother Ellen, and brother Stephen.
