Mary's father had a brother, Thomas Maroney, b.25 Dec 1827, Kilrush, Co. Clare, Ireland. Died 25 Jan 1913, at his home at 105 Mary St., Beaver Dam, Wi. Came to US in 1848, lived and worked in rail construction in Pennsylvania for three years, before settling in Beaver Dam, Wi. He had a sister, Mrs. Carroll, in Waseca, MN. Thomas married Ellen McCabe (d.20 JAN 1893), and had eight children: Thomas, Maggie, Anna (lived in Kenosha), Frank (lived in St. Paul), Mary Jane (aka Jennie), Nellie, James, and Agnes- who was married to my great-grandfather James Welch's brother Michael Welch. Agnes died shortly after giving birth to a son who I think died as well. Thomas Maroney, Ellen, Mary Jane, Ellen's brother James McCabe are buried in Lot 43, unmarked, in the St. Patrick's Cemetary in Beaver Dam, Wi. Agnes is one of two markings on the Welch family marker, all others in that plot including Michael are unmarked.
