Thackrah / re: thomas J. thackeray
i am posting this message to all...
My father, born 1925 in Schenectady, NY recently died on
Nov.28, 2005. His name was Thomas J. Thackeray, brother of Edward Thackeray, who is also now deceased,and both sons of
Joseph E. Thackeray and his wife, Viola Mae Russ. They resided in their family home for one hundred years, which now still stands and remains in the family interests of Thomas's children and grandchildren....of which there are many....
Thomas married Madelyn Doney, from Troy, NY in 1950 and from thence, proceeded to have five children...Edna Mae, born 1950, Joseph Francis, born 1952, Mary Elizabeth, born 1953, Thomas Russ, born 1955, and James William, born 1957. We all are still are well, thank God.
Thomas Joseph was the offspring of Joseph Edward Thackeray, who was the offspring of Benjamin Thackeray(Thackrah) I will post more regarding Ben's genealogy, especially as to marriage and familial ties. There were many Thackerays(Thackrahs) in the area of Amsterdam, Cohoes, Troy and Schenectady, NY
