According to indexed records at www.rootsireland.ie, Thomas Michael McCarthy was baptized on 1 Dec 1865 in Ballyvourney, County Cork, Ireland, the son of Denis McCarthy and his wife Joan/Johanna Kelleher.
He died in 1901 of "a broken heart" due to the death of his cousin, according to one of his granddaughters (his death certificate says "apoplexy"). Records show that Thomas' best man and godfather of his first child was one Daniel O'Connell. Daniel died suddenly on 28 May 1899 in a railroad accident at age 27. He was living with Thomas at 14 Maryland Avenue, Wilmington, and working with him as a bartender at the time of his death.
When he died, Thomas left his wife Maggie to raise 5 children under the age of 7.
