Searching for Thomas McKenney - Born around 1915 in OH
Posted by: Gary Story (ID *****7266) Date: June 27, 2010 at 13:28:00

I am looking for someone in the Cleveland area to assist me in my search for Thomas E. McKenney.

From what little information I have, I have found a Thomas McKenney who was born on 11 Mar. 1916. This Thomas McKenney would be approximately the appropriate age to the individual I am looking for. This Thomas passed away on 23 Sept 1987. My family's contact with him ended in the early 1940s.

I want to confirm that this is the particular Thomas McKenney in question as I continue searching for him and his family. I currently live in California and have no knowledge of a way to access some of his vital records that would only be found in Cleveland. To help me identify whether this is the correct Thomas, I would greatly appreciate some help in my quest to find the info that I need to help confirm his identity:

1) Thomas' Family
The Thomas I am looking for was married by 1944 and had a child around 1944 as well. If I could access an obituary from the aforementioned Thomas, it would help confirm that this is the one I am looking for. His obituary is located here:

2) Thomas' Profession
From what I understand, the Thomas I am looking for was some sort of factory worker. The aforementioned obituary would hopefully mention his profession as well.

3) Thomas' Address
The addresses I have for the Thomas I am looking for put him in Cleveland during the 1940s, 1950s. There may be old city directories that are available to peruse that I cannot find from my computer here in California. The addresses that I have for him are as follows:

Thomas McKenney
4220 E. 111th Street
Cleveland, OH

Thomas McKenney
10734 Elmarge Ave.
Cleveland, OH

If any of this information connects, I feel confident that I have tracked down a relative whom my family believed was long lost. Any information, pointers, or advice that anyone may be able to provide to me would be greatly appreciated by me and my family.

Thank you!
