Thank you for your reply.
I was interested to know where your Thomas came from because I saw that he had a son Owen O'Brien.
This name is very popular in my branch of the O'Brien family (who came from County Armagh).
I have been searching the Internet to see if I could find any connections and I was interested to see that most Owen O'Brien's that I found came from around the same area of the North of Ireland - Counties Armagh, Monaghan, Louth and Cavan.
I think there might be a connection between these.
The name Thomas is also features in my O'Brien tree.
Here is the information that I have on my branch -
1.Owen O'Brien married Mary McAllister about 1800.
Owen O'Brien >>2
2. Owen O'Brien married Bridget Finnegan
about 1830. Owen and Bridget both buried at Drumintee, County Armagh.
Michael O'Brien born 1833, Drumintee near Newry, County Armagh - married in Australia.
John Joseph O'Brien - married in Australia
Thomas O'Brien - married in Australia.
Margaret Bridget O'Brien - married in Australia.
Mary O'Brien - remained in Ireland, married.
Hugh O'Brien - remained in Ireland, married, buried Drumintee.
Michael O'Brien was my GG Grandpa. I am descended from his son Owen.
I have the beginnings of a family tree web page which contains a little more information.
Hope we can find a connection.
