In this obit, his name is spelled as Thomas Cannell. But in the Cleveland Necrology file, his obit appears in the microfilm between Sarah, my great-great grandmother, and another Thomas F. Connell who shot himself in Feb. 25, 1942.
*It turns out this Thomas Connell and his wife Lulu Dial were unrelated, and possibly Scots.*
Interestingly enough, this Thomas Connell is a "Jr.", and would be about the same age at death as the son of John J. Connell, my great-great grandfather (husband of Sarah) -- approx. 55 years old -- this Thomas is buried at West Park Cemetery with his wife Lulu (nee Dial) and I sure would to see whether this Thomas was born on April 19, 1888. If not, then this is a different Thomas Connell altogether. I have yet to go to the cemetery.
*This Thomas's grave is unmarked at West Park Cemetery.*
