Surnames: Thomas Lonergan
I'm not certain if we could be related and am a bit short on family history. To the best of my knowledge, my great grandfather was a Thomas Lonergan, supposedly of Rochestown. He married a Mary Ann Cummins, supposedly also of Rochestown. I don't know how many children they had. However, I know that his son, Thomas, my grandfather, came to the US and lived in Brooklyn, and worked for the Pennsylvania RR. When Thomas' (my grandfather's) wife (Ellen Rose Murphy) died, he returned to Ireland sometime around 1905, with his three children: Thomas, James and Joseph. Thomas (my Uncle) stayed in Cahir and worked the family farm in Cahir, Ballylooby, Co. Tipperary. Whether this was the farm of his father's, I am not certain. We just referred to it as the famiily farm. Some of the remaining of Thomas' children and grandchildren still live in the area of Cahir. His son, Joseph, lives in Ardfinnan. His brother, James (my father), and Joseph, who became a Holy Ghost father and pastored a parish in Lafayette, Louisiana, USA, came to America in the early 1920's..
