Thomas Heffernan
Birth: Jul., 1816
Rossmore Bridge
County Tipperary, Ireland
Death: Jan. 27, 1864
Madison County
New York, USA

One of eight children of Timothy Heffernan and Catherine Dwyer Heffernan, Thomas Heffernan was born at Rossmore Bridge in Tipperary, Ireland in July of 1816, and in 1844 he married Ellen Dugan Heffernan. They had nine children: Nora Heffernan Donnelly, Timothy Heffernan, Patrick Heffernan, John Heffernan, Catherine ("Kate") Heffernan Sheahan, Michael Heffernan, Thomas Heffernan, James Heffernan, and Edward Heffernan. In 1863 he and son Timothy came to America. Several months later Ellen and their surviving other seven children joined them in Madison County, New York. An illness one of the children caught aboard ship was passed to Thomas who died at age 47 in Madison County on January 27, 1864. He is buried in Saint James Catholic Cemetery in Cazenovia, Madison County. The Heffernans are descended from Eneas Heffernan (16th century), a Knight of Saint John of Jerusalem (Knight of Malta) and Bishop of Emly. I hope one of his descendants will add his photo to this site.

Thanks so much to all the Heffernan family genealogists for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions.
