this should be an interesting subjest, as it seems that most all generations had at least one Thomas/Tom Folliard in each family.
I am in search for 1 Tom Folliard and who is parents were and their roots.
My (my husband's) Thomas Folliard was born in Ireland (?) and died in Clooncan, Co. Roscommon, Ireland or was reportedly so. He married Bridgett Commons, daughter of Peter and Mary Hurley Commons, sometime between 1830 and 1840. They had 7 children: Adelia married John McGrath; Catherine Michael O'Donnell ; Michael died July 25, 1864 as a prisoner of war in Andesonville; Maria b. 1840 maried Patrick Duffy; Peter 1843 married Delia (Adelia) Fitzmaurice; MARGARET FOLLIARD August 15, 1851 married THOMAS LEMIN (from England) in Franklin Furnace N.J.; Annie Theresa August 09, 1858 married John Bonnes/Bonner in PA;
Bridgett and her children came to the States according to the 1900 US Cenus in 1863. She came with her brothers and their families on the Ship Webster, I can not find a list of passengers for this ship in that year.
