Hi everyone:

I am still trying to find the parents of Thomas J. Keefe, who was
reportedly born in Rensselaer (City or County)c. 1957, father born in
Ireland possibly named Michael or Joseph, mother unknown.

Thomas married Hanora (Hannah, Anna, Johanna) Theresa Morrissey (born
June 5, 1859 or 1861 in Ireland, possibly Waterford. They were married
at Sacred Heart Church in North Albany on December 2nd, 1877. Witnesses,
Maurice & Ellen Morrissey. Hannah also had a sister named Kate
(Catherine, Katherine)and a brother or father named Maurice, both of
whom emigrated to Albany or Troy around the same time. Thomas sold
produce from a cart then ran a Confectionary and Dry Goods Store on
North Broadway in Albany and had a home around the corner at 4 Genesee
St. Albany.

Thomas & Hannah's children:
1. Mary E. KEEFE b: WFT Est. 1879-1905
2. John KEEFE b: ABT. 13 JUL 1881 in Albany
3. Joseph F. KEEFE b: ABT. 8 MAR 1884 in Albany
4. Mary Agnes KEEFE b: 17 NOV 1885
5. Lucy KEEFE b: ABT. 19 AUG 1889
6. Thomas J. KEEFE b: ABT. DEC 1890 in Albany
7. Maurice F. KEEFE b: 10 DEC 1897 in Albany

Only Mary Agnes, Joseph F. and Maurice F. survived to adulthood.

Hannah died on October 26, 1917 in Albany and Thomas died January 22,
1930 in Albany, NY.
