My immigrant was Thomas Francis Mara born circa 1841.Came to the U.S. about 1866 according to his death ctf.His father was John and his mother Bridget (no last name on death ctf). He came to New York where he already had relatives. His siblings AFAIK were William, Michael, John, Rose, Bridget and James. He married Mary Ann Kealy from Co Derry in NYC (St Francis Xavier Church) on May 26, 1872. They lived for a time in Lambertville, NJ but when he was taken ill went back to NYC where he died July 12, 1884 & is buried in First Calvary Cemetery, Brooklyn.His sister Rose married a man with the surname Gordon and his sister Bridget married a John Lavery. I would love to find out where in Ireland Thomas was born.My grandmother always said that he was accepted for the Dublin police force but then decided to emigrate.Family stories say he came from Kingstown but don't know if that was where he was born or where he emigrated from.Grateful for any help.
