Surnames: Beacom, Kelly
My name is Pam Nissen. My mother was a Beacom and we'd like very much to find more about the Beacom's in Ireland particularly Thomas Beacom, my great-great grandfather who was supposed to be from County Fermanaugh. He was born around 1820 and married a Mary Kelly in Ireland. I do not know anything about Mary. They emigrated to America around 1845-1850. They had at least two children, Michael (Born October 14, 1840 in Ireland) and a Mary with dates unknown. There may have been other daughters also. Mary Kelly Beacom died either on the trip to America or shortly thereafter in New Orleans as far as we know. Anything more would be greatly appreciated as we'd like to know more about just where they lived, etc. Thank you in advance for any help.
