Searching for grandfather’s history

My grandfather, Thomas Mortell, was born in 1857 in County Limerick, possibly Kilmallock. I've looked for some history but haven't found much other then his life in the Pacific NW, Port Gamble then Seattle. His parents names were Daniel and Ann Mortell. He worked in Port Gamble as a Logger, marrying in 1882, Josie Mary Thompson. Thomas died in Seattle in 1939. I believe he and his wife visited Ireland in 1912 - I have his tour book and another book entitled, "On the Eve of Home Rule" by Anna Louise Strong (a visiting journalist). So if anybody has any information that would be helpful.
