Thomas O. Connor
Birth: 1842, Ireland
Death: unknown

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He entered the service at Baltimore, Maryland. He served as an Ordinary Seaman in the Union Navy. He was issued the CMOH by General Order Number 59, dated June 22, 1865. His citation reads "On board the USS Minnesota, in action during the assult on Fort Fisher (North Carolina), 15 January 1865. Landing on the beach with the assaulting party from his ship, Connor charged up to the plaisades and, when more than two-thirds of the men became seized with panic and retreated on the run, risked life to remain with a wounded officer. With the enemy concentrating his fire on the group, he waited until after dark before assisting in carrying the wounded man from the field." (bio by: Don Morfe)
