Brothers Thomas and Cornelius Ryan
Might anyone have any info on brothers Thomas and Cornelius Ryan? Thomas was b. abt. 1820, ended up in Pittsburgh, Pa., USA area and in 1856 was ordained as a Catholic Priest, then served in Altoona, and Gallitzin, Pa., USA, died in 1883 and is buried in Gallitzin, Pa., USA. Also listed with Thomas in a 1870 US Census were a Mary Corle, age 26 and Thomas Boiles, age 45, both to have been born in Ireland. Unknown if any relation?
Cornelius was b. abt 1826 and ended up in Indiana County, Pa., USA. Cornelius married an Elvira Shrum, had 4 children and worked for the railroad. Cornelius died in Greensburg, Pa., USA in 1898.
The family story goes that they were from Tipperary and Cornelius was a stowaway on a ship coming to the USA. This story really has not been proven! Thank you,
