My gr.grandfather was Thomas Thompson. He married Harriet Elley in Glanbrook, Wentworth County, Ontario and they raised a large family. According to their marriage record his parents were John and Eleanor Thompson ( No maiden name for Eleanor). Thomas came to Canada in the late 1840`s or very early 1850s ( I haven`t found a positive match on passenger lists). I don`t know if he came with family members or not. I do know that one sister, Eliza, is buried with him and Harriet. I believe he may have had a sister Mary Jane through searching marriages of children of John and Eleanor Thompson and she married someone whose last name was Spence in York Ontario. We were told they came from Armagh, but then I was told Donegal and I have also heard Tyrone...!!
Please, if anyone knows anything about this family pre-Canada or any information on Thomas`parents and siblings I would love to hear from you. What info I have is only since Thomas and Harriet married.
Even suggestions of how to search in Ireland would be great...I have tried several web sites, but NO luck. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
