Catherine Loftus, Thomas Graham 1830 Cen
Posted by: David V. Adams Date: July 23, 2001 at 17:26:25
  of 1914

I am requesting a census or church record lookup if there are any volunteers on this message board who are willing.

I believe that my GGGrandparents may have lived in Onandaga County NY in the 1830's. Most likely they lived near the Erie Canal.
I am looking for census records for the year 1830 for Thomas Graham age ~29 and/or Catherine Loftus age ~22, each born in Ireland.

Family lore is that Thomas worked on the Erie Canal.

Also 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 Graham 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 (born to his first wife) was William; born ~1836 also in NY State. Thomas and Catherine subsequently moved to Lake County Illinois where they lived out their lives as farmers.

Any help or pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,

-Dave Adams-
