Can you help expand this family??
For 30 years I have been trying to get my Thomas KIRBY back to the old
sod.Maybe some day.
Thomas KIRBY b Dec 1841 in Ireland (S. DAKOTA 1885 census). Arrived USA
through port of New York in September 1872 (Citizenship papers). Died
Chicago 4 July 1907 (Death Certificate).
Married to Maria Hays(?). (Date and Place unknown)
Lived in Chicago prior to arriving at the homestesd in Faulk County
South Dakota in 1882.( Homestead papers) Returned to Chicago 1892. (
Faulk County deeds).
There were four children:
Josephine 1882-1903 Never married. No children.
James 1884-1948 Never married. No children.
Theresa 1885-1949 Never married. No children.
Thomas 1888-1958 Married Dorothy Monahan 1912. Four children.
It is possible that Thomas was from county Tipperary but I have not been
able to prove it.
