|We are researching the McKnight Clan of Clare, Ireland. Thomas Edward, came to the US as a lad of 11 years old. That is pretty much all we know about his early years. He married Margaret McCarthy (b. 1844) of Grafton, WI and spent the remainder of his life in Niagara Falls, NY raising 14 children. They were Frances, Thomas, William, George A., Charles Leo, Theresa, Ellen, Margaret, Agnes, Matthew, John, James and Vincent and Jospeh James. |
He probably first entered North America via Canada circa 1852.
