Thomas Cleary of Tipperary, Ireland
Posted by: Terry Trinko (ID *****0641) Date: December 23, 2004 at 17:05:23

I am looking for information regarding my great great grandfather Thomas Cleary. Born in 1826 in Tipperary, Ireland. He married Mary Brennan. They had three children: Margaret born in Oct. 1858, Maria born in Aug. 1860 & Thomas Jr. born in Jan. 1864. Mary died soon after Thomas Jr. was born. Sometime in there the family came to the U.S. - I've always been told that Thomas Jr. was born in Ireland... but that info could be wrong. After coming to the U.S. Thomas remarried to Catherine Donahue and they had 10 children: Cathering, Elizabeth, Angelo, William, Johanna, Bridget, Josephine, John, Cecilia and Theresa. Somewhere they found time to set up homestead in Wisconsin. My great grandfather is Thomas Jr... and he married Mary Ann Hickey. They had 11 children: Maria, Marcella, William, Elton, Merrill, Gertrude, Cecilia, Marguerite, twins - Magdalen & Joseph and the youngest Sylvester. My grandmother is Magdalen - known as Della and she lived in and around the Hartford and West Bend, WI area all of her life. If anyone can give me ANY information regarding information on either Thomas Sr. or Thomas Jr. and their families it would be greatly appreciated!!
