Need help researching Thomas Halpin, born 1819 or 1820 in Cork. His father was James; is mother was Mary.
Thomas married Mary Ahern (possibly on 12 Feb 1850, St. Catherine's Parish of Conna).
They had at least three sons Michael, William, James (possibly a fourth son,Thomas, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary).
May have lived in Curraylass, Parish of Conna.
Emigrated to Boston - possibly in 1870/71.
Known to have resided on Depot Street, Milford MA in May 1874. Died in Milford 24 Jan 1885

Marylynn,
Timing seems to match (Thomas born 1820; Mary 1826), but my Thomas and Mary emigrated sometime after 1856. They settled in Milford/Hopkington, MA and died there (Thomas in 1885; Mary in 1891). They're buried in St Mary Cemetery in Milford. They had three sons and a daughter -- all born in Ireland. Bill
