Thomas Graham/Catherine Loftus ca1830-38
Posted by: David V. Adams Date: July 24, 2001 at 14:23:22

A Thomas Graham is listed in the 1830 Federal census record for Oneida County as a resident of the town of Utica New York.

I am requesting a Catholic church record lookup for Thomas Graham if there are any volunteers on this message board who are willing. I am also interested in a census lookup for Catherine Loftus for 1830 as well.

In 1830, Thomas Graham would have been ~29 years old and Catherine Loftus age ~22, with each born in Ireland. Family lore is that Thomas worked on the Erie Canal.

If anyone has access to local Catholic Church records, I am looking for references to the marriage of this couple ca 1837 or the birth of their son Thomas ca 1838.

I am also researching a putative first wife of Thomas whose death probably occurred ca 1837. It is thought that her first name was Mary. Thomas's oldest child was William born ~1836 also in NY State. Thomas and Catherine subsequently moved to Lake County Illinois where they lived out their lives.

I realize that this is a lot of information to request. Any help or pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,

-Dave Adams-
