In the book "Some History of lawrence County" there is brief mention of McAvoy. It's in an article about the T.K. Slaughter Family who lived in Trojan. Before Trojan, they had a dairy operation south of Bele Fourche. But most of the story was about adventures living in Trojan in the winters. I quote"
A number of "old-timer" visitors at the Slaughter house are remembered by the children, among them, Bill Remer, and early sherrif of Deadwood, several bachelor prospectors, including John Madill of Preston, "Judge" Monroe and Tom McAvoy. Obviously the "Judge" was nick-name of some sort. One might assume the Tom was your Thomas and that Monroe was somehow related. Unfortunately, that's all it says... But it gives the clue that they were bachelors and prospectors somewhere in the Trojen area. This was all pre1926 when the Slaughter family left Trojan.
Hope this helps.
