Thomas jnr is my great grandfather, he migrated to Australia at some stage and died in Broken Hill New South Wales in 1896 at 42yrs old of Pneumonia, his widow was Honora Daly. They were RC religion, he states that his father was Thomas Thompson and Annie Maloney or Maroney or even Mahoney it is difficult to read. Thomas married Honora Daly at Willunga South Australia and the lived in Goolwa SA. Thomas and Honora or Nora had the following children, Wilhemina, Adelaide, Annie, Maggie & Stanley. My great Aunt Wilemina went over to America in the 1920,s to see her Grandparents and live over there, that is how we new there was an American connection, Place of birth on Thomas death cert is Christiana Norway.
