Looking for any info on Thomas Folan(1840 Galway). His parents were J. William (abt 1820) (not really sure about this) and Ellen Costello (abt 1820). The older Folans did not leave Galway. This may have lived near Connemera.
Thomas emmigrated earlier than his future wife, Ann Taaffe. She went to NJ to be with him. Thomas married Ann Taaffe in 1864 in Keyport, NJ. They may have been first cousins. They at least knew each other in Galway. Ann and Thomas are buried in St. Joe's cemetery in Keyport, NJ.
