Thomas Bellingham was born 18 Mar 1856 in the town of Kilrea, Kilrea parish, County Londonderry, Ireland to John Bellingham and Margaret Jane Hasty. Thomas was the second of thirteen children in this marriage and was the first boy. One child died within a month of birth, the other twelve all lived to adulthood and all immigrated to New York City between 1876 and 1911. The oldest four children were in New York by 1880, living with their maternal aunt. Thomas became a plumber in New York where he married Martha Jackson 3 Nov 1887 and their first child, Estella, was born. The family moved to Tacoma about 1889 where Harold Jackson (1891) and Norman Oliver (1895) were born. Thomas was elected to the Tacoma City Council 1903 and was council president in 1905. He seems to have left political office for about 10 years until he was elected Pierce County Commissioner in 1916. He was re-elected in 1918 and served until he resigned shortly before his death in 1920.
