When was your Thomas born? Where in NY did he live and how long? My GG Grandfather Patrick Ronan b. abt 1835, Ireland arrived in NYC no later than 1854 (pretty sure it was 1849). His Parents were a Thomas and Elizabeth. Upon finding a naturalization petition I have him on E. 11th St, in 1856 there are also a Thomas and a John living doors down from one another. My mystery now is I came across an Emigrants Bank Record for and Elizabeth Ronan born abt 1800 in Dunmanway, Cork. She is making a deposit for her son Patrick whom was born in what turned out to be Ontario. I want to say Prescott ( I am in AZ maybe that's why the name stuck). Anyhow, I think this could really be my GGG Grandmother, and here I am venturing into Canadian Genealogy.
