I'm Looking for any information on my GGGrandfather's family. His name was Thomas Davis, of Cork,Ireland. His father's name was Dennis Davis. He had two brothers, William, a doctor, and John, a professor on the Isle of Mann. Thomas married a Catherine O'Rourke of Limerick, Ireland. He was raised as a Protestant, but converted to the Catholic Church. Thomas and William left Ireland around 1848 after the insurrection. Thomas settled in Canada near New London, Ontario. William, near St. Joseph, Missouri. When Thomas and Catherine left Ireland, they had several children. Their names were William, Michael, Sarah, and Mary. Three other children died while in Ireland, Thomas Jr. and Dennis(twins) died in infancy, and Clara as the result of a fire.While in Canada 4 more children were born James, John, Julia, and Ellen. In 1856-58, Thomas moved to Door County, Wi. near Sturgeon Bay. He died Oct.12, 1879. If you have any information on his brothers or parents, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Thank You.
