I wish to know more about "The McGourty's"

My grandfather Thomas (who did not speak much about his back round) and his wife Bridget left Leitrim in the 1900's to Chicago where Tom Sr. worked for the CTA. They had two sons James and Thomas P.. Bridget died when the boys were small.
Thomas re-married Molly (I don't know anything about her backround or even her maiden name).

Thomas Jr. became a Chicago Police Officer, and James became a priest.

Thomas married Rosemary Roberts and had three children Karen
Kevin and Kelly. Karen married and had a daughter Megan Divorced her husband and then Megan died at the age of 12.

Thomas Jr. was the first to die, in the McGourty family,Thomas Sr. and later James.Also Molly.
