    Other Events:

    Notes:

    According to the 1928 and 1937 city directories of Hartford, in those years he was a janitor.

    That the father of Thomas Doherty born 3 June 1913 was another Thomas Doherty who emigrated from Ireland in 1899 is established by the older Thomas Doherty's petition for naturalization dated 16 August 1913. Facts established by this document:

    Residence: 19 Hamilton St., Hartford, Connecticut
    Occupation: Foreman

    Birth date: 25 December 1875

    Birth place: Milltown, Ireland

    Emigration: On the Teutonic, leaving Queenstown, Ireland 5 Apr 1899, arriving New York City 13 Apr 1899

    Wife's name: Delia

    Wife's birthplace: Dalgan, Ireland

    Children: John, b. 29 Jun 1907; Edward, b. 17 Aug 1908; Thomas, b. 3 Jun 1913

    Thomas Doherty stated his birthplace as "Milltown, Ireland," and in the 1930 US Census both his and his wife's place of birth is given as "Irish Free State."

    There are a large number of Milltowns the Republic of Ireland. At least seven are in Wikipedia, plus many more hamlets, townlands, and sub-townlands of that name.

    There are two Thomas Dohertys listed on the passenger manifest for the New York arrival of the RMS Teutonic on 13 Apr 1899. One of them states his age as 20, his last residence as "Caherduff", that he has $10 to his name, and that he is joining his sister Ellie in Hartford, Connecticut, who paid for his passage. The other states his age as 22, his last residence as "Carnaduff", and that he is joining his sister Mary in Hartford. Given the circumstances under which English shipping functionaries interviewed Irish passengers, is entirely possible that these listings refer to the same individual, and that the variations are down to simple mis-hearing. It is also possible that this sailing of the Teutonic contained two different Thomas Dohertys, both headed for Hartford.

    There is a miniscule hamlet called Caherduff in county Mayo and a farming area called Carnduff in county Sligo. But I don't think either of these pertain to the origins of Thomas Doherty who gave his birth date as 25 December 1875 and his birthplace as "Milltown, Ireland."

    The National Library of Ireland collects and preserves Catholic parish registers, and they're viewable on ancestry.com and elsewhere. There we find the record of a Thomas Doherty baptised on Sunday, 26 December 1875 at Carndonagh in county Donegal, son of Michael Doherty and Anne Naughton or Naughlen.

    (Note that County Donegal is the part of Ireland with the largest concentration of persons named Doherty, both today and in the nineteenth century.)

    Carndonagh, Carn Domhnach, is a town on the Inishowen peninsula; if Ireland were a clock it would be at about 12:30. Its current population is about 2,700. Photographs of it show it overshadowed by a very large and startlingly Italianate church, built in the 1940s on a high point over the town.

    About five miles to the northeast of Carndonagh is the seaside town of Culldaff, Cúil Dabhcha. It is easy to imagine this place name being spoken in a heavy Irish accent and transcribed by non-Irish officials as "Caherduff" or "Carnaduff."

    County Donegal has at least three Milltowns. Milltown, Baile an Mhuilinn, is a farming hamlet about twenty miles west of Carndonagh as the crow flies, but over 35 miles away by road. Milltown is also the name of a substantial part of central Donegal town, at the other end of the county. The third Milltown in Donegal is on the Inishowen peninsula, a mere eight to ten miles from Carndonagh depending on which road you take. This Milltown is on the Milltown Road, in the townland of Lederg, in the electoral division of Desertegny, in the civil parish of Desertegny, in the barony of Inishowen West, in the county of Donegal. Its coordinates are 55° 11' 53" N, 7° 29' 41" W. This Milltown seems to be the likeliest candidate for the birthplace of Thomas Doherty.

    Thomas married Delia Ferrick on 28 Sep 1904 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. Delia was born on 22 Sep 1883 in Dalgan, Ireland; died on 8 Feb 1976 in West Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Delia Ferrick was born on 22 Sep 1883 in Dalgan, Ireland; died on 8 Feb 1976 in West Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Feb 1976, Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut

    Notes:

    That her maiden name was Ferrick is confirmed by the U.S. Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007, which reports Delia Ferrick as the mother of Thomas Doherty who was born 3 Jun 1913 at Hartford, Connecticut and died 19 Sep 1992.

    According to the 1920 and 1930 US censuses, she immigrated to the United States in 1898.

    Several ancestry.com user-contributed trees give her parents as Thomas Ferrick, b. 1861, and Ellen Rohan, with no evidence provided.
