Looking for any information on Thomas Ahearn & family of Leeds, (Northampton) MA. Thomas was born around 1830. I believe he was from County Cork. Thomas immigrated to the United States in 1857 where he was a farmer and lived on Spring St. His wife Catherine Coogan also immigrated at that time which would suggest that they were married. The 1910 census indicates that they were married in 1857 or 58, which would also suggest that they were married in Ireland. Unfortunately , the 1900 census indicates that Thomas immigrated in 1849 and that he and Catherine were married in 1860so the dates are uncertain but I feel the 1910 census is probably correct. The 1900 Census shows that they had 8 children at the time and that 5 were still living. In 1910 they had 6 surviving children of 10. I know nothingof the children who died. Of the children who lived, the names I know of are Lawrence, Anastasia, Michael. J (my grandfather), Thomas Jr.(Known as Shaky - I think he had Parkinson) and John. Any help would be appreciated.
