I am not sure if the following information will help, but the Leavenworth connection suggests we may be related.See information below.It appears that I am a decendent of William McGlinn, son of John and Bridget McGlinn.I believe that Thomas was William's brother.Thomas was 25 in the 1860 census which does not correspond to the 1830 birth date estimate in your posting, but is pretty close.Do you know where Thomas was born in Ireland?I have not been able to trace the McGlinns back to Ireland yet.Hope you can help!
