I am not familiar with your ancestor's name, but my branch of the family also hailed from Thurles, Co. Tipperary. John & Margaret Burke-Delahunt (bn: @ 1795-99) Bridget (bn@ 1829) James (1830) Denis (1832) Thomas (1834) Michael (1836) William (1838) John (1840)
They came to the US in 2 installments: 1849 & 1850. The family settled & remained in Queens Co., NYC until WWII.
Will keep your name on file if any "strikes" come along.
