first off, thank you for your help and information. I have been able to gather more information on my O'Neill/Dwyer-Briarfield, Tipperary family using the "rootsireland.ie" web site. I was able to locate both Thomas and kate's death records along with their daughter Johanna's marriage record. She married a William Carew in 1879, his address listed as Newtown and his father as John Carew. These records, though fee, are very helpful since they list more details such as address, parish, parents names, etc. I have also found both Thomas and his father Daniel Neal (note different spelling)listed in land records back to 1826 living at Briarfield(now Drominda), cappawhite, tipperary. Mary O'neill Thomas's daughter was still in the home in 1920. Cleary this family had been in the Cappawhite area for a long time.
once again thanks for your help
