    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Did Thomas come with his parents to New Brunswick or was he an adult? Do you know his parents names? The subscription site Roots Ireland has an 1821 baptismal record for a Thomas Devaney in Co. Sligo and also an 1831 record plus others starting in 1836. The parents names would be need to confirm a record.
