Birth: Dec. 17, 1829
County Kerry, Ireland
Death: Mar. 21, 1902
Providence
Providence County
Rhode Island, USA

Born in Dromid, Co. Kerry, Ireland, to Patrick and Johanna. Married Hanora Shea, daughter of Bartholomew and Bridget, in Dromid 30 Jan 1855, Immigrated with wife and children to New York Harbor sailing from Liverpool on S.S. Westminster, arriving 27 May 1864. The family settled in Norwich, CT and later moved to Providence, R.I. The family worked in the cotton mills of Norwich for many years. A biographical sketch of Timothy's son John gives some insight into the cotton mill life: "The youth of Mr. DRISCOLL was characterized by a hard struggle for existence and an early familiarity with the struggle, and with the serious and responsible side of life. When arrived at the age of ten he was employed in the large cotton mills of Norwich, and gradually advanced to a comprehensive knowledge of the entire cotton industry. His initial steps were as a mule spinner in the mule room, from which his industry and aptitude gained him admittance to a more interesting and encouraging department. At the age of seventeen, he shifted his allegiances to the "Norwich Lock Co." and, at the expiration of four years, to the "Richmond Stone Co.," with which latter concern he remained for two years." (excerpt from Portland, Oregon record published 1903).
