Harry Dewitt Covert

I'm trying to find the family of my grandfather, Harry D. Covert. He was born Aug. 26,1886 in Brooklyn(I think).amd died Feb. 18th, 1955. He married my grandmother, Naomi B. Jenkins, on Jan 28, 1912. They had two children, Clarence Byron, my father, and Frances L. Here's where it gets goofy. The story is that he left his family sometime between 1913, when Frances was born and 1919 when Naomi died. My father and his sister were raised by their Aunt Mary Jenkins Woodward in Bayonne, NJ. I imagine with all the Coverts in this country there must be someone who knows of Harry's family. I'm pretty sure he didn't just appear! Can anyone help?
