I see you were looking for a Thomas McVeety. I think we are both looking for answers about the same family. My Grandfather was Thomas Joseph McVeety of Co Cavan ireland. He died back in 1976 (He was burried there) before I was born but I know that he and his family had strong connections with America because that's where his sister lived and various other family members.
I would be very interested to know if this is the same family in which you are trying to find. I have read a few of your forums and i'm hoping that we might be able to fill in some each others blanks.
