Unfortunately, Thomas and Hannah were one of the first couples married
at Sacred Heart Church while it was still only a basement. We have
located their marriage records which didn't contain much info, but since
there wasn't even a church before 1877 I doubt Thomas could have been
baptized there. But thanks for the suggestion.

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

at Sacred Heart Church in North Albany on December 2nd, 1877.

(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
