Searching for parents of Thomas Ragan born 1840 in Philadelphia, was a plumber in 1865 at 1 Lancaster Ave., and died August 23, 1888 buried in Cathedral Cemetery. Members of the 72nd Regiment of Volunteers were invited to his Mass. His brother Dennis was born in 1844 in Philadelphia. He became a plumber from his home at 131 North 10th Street and was buried from there upon his death September 4, 1884. I would like exact birth information, original home, and parent information. I am also researching related families of Taylor, Sommer, Day, Yost, Larzelere, Traganza, and Lombardo. I will be glad to share information on their names.
