I've been told by Irish people in Ireland that many were simply Toole in Ireland and became O'Toole in the US. Then there are transcription errors, etc. One of my other ancestors, an Egan, was told by the English to add an extra (and unneccessary) a to his name, Eagan, so the first thing he did upon immigrating was to drop it.
