Migrated to /Born in Canada

Thomas was born in 1857 in Kilmallock, County Limerick, Ireland. According to my father he immigrated in 1871 to somewhere in Canada and eventually took a boat down the east coast, walked across the Isthmus of Panama in 1872 and from there went up the coast to Port Gamble, Washington Territory. He worked as a logger, married in 1882 in Port Madison and worked supervising a sailing fleet. He and his family, five children, moved to Seattle in 1904 and he worked as a lumber inspector. Thomas died in Seattle September 29, 1939. His death certificate indicates his parents were Daniel and Ann Mortell.
