  • Notes 
    • Aug 11, 2014: My best guess at this point is that the Michael, Thomas, and John Cleary all of the same area in Arthur are related. In the 1861 census for Arthur is listed Michael and Thomas and their families, both born in 1826 in Ireland. I found an immigration record that had identical listings for a Michael and Thomas Cleary: Age 22; Embarkation: Cork; Ship: Liberty; Occupation: Workman; Compartment: Steerage; Native Country: Ireland; Destination: USA; Arrival Date 21 May 1846. Transit Type: Staying in the US. This is from a record Irish Immigrants: New York Port Arrival Record, 1846-1851.

      It looks like Thomas' wife is Joann Cleary, to me. I think the transcriber wrote "Ivana".
