Thomas McConnell married another Mary Ann Skelly

(O'Skelly) on August 3, 1830. The marriage was performed by Father Gallitzin at St. Michael Church, Loretto (Lesdoux, volume 1, page 156), and the newlyweds lived in territory that later became part of St. Bartholomew parish, Wilmore, Pennsylvania. Thomas McConnell was born on 12 Aug 1805
, and was the son of Arthur J. McConnell (1765–January 21, 1861 and Catherine Moury (1771–November 18, 1844).

This Mary Ann Skelly was born on June 19, 1809, to Philip (Felix) Skelly, Jr., and Margaret McAfee Skelly, and baptized (as Maria Anna Skelley) by Father Gallitzin at St. Michael on September 17, 1809 (Ledoux,volume 1, page 11). She died March 19, 1886, and is buried St. Bartholomew's. Her father was the son of Philip Skelly, Sr., one of the six Skelly brothers from county Antrim, and brother of John Skelly, Sr., who was the father of the Mary Ann Skelly who had married Thomas McGough 18 years earlier. Mary Ann Skelly McGough, therefore, was the first cousin Philip (Felix) Skelly, Jr., who was the father of Mary Ann Skelly McConnell. The two Mary Ann Skellys were first cousins once removed .
