I have found that family and think that Thomas was probably a cousin to
my Thomas. There were many Thomas' so perhaps the patriarch in Ireland
was a Thomas. Before arriving in Canada the family was in Londonderry
Co. then Kilkenny, so were on the move well before arrival in north
The Poole family was also in Beckwith.
