My great grandfather, Thomas Lonergan, lived on a farm in Cahir. I'm estimating his birth year to be in the 1830s. He married a Bridget Connors or Cummins. He had a son, Thomas, my grandfather, and daughters, Ellen and Kate. He may have also have had a son, Michael. His son, Thomas, emigrated to America in the 1880s and returned to Ireland in 1909 with his sons, Thomas, James and Joseph. My Uncle Thomas, remained in Cahir and the other two boys, James and Joseph, came back to America. James was my dad.
