  • Notes 
    • The funeral notice of Thomas Carey mentions a brother Michael Harrington. Michael was likely the son of Thomas' mother Catherine and her first husband, Daniel Harrington. Census records name him as Michael Harrington in 1850, Michael Carey in 1855, 1860, and 1870 and as Michael Harrington in 1880, and 1900.

      In the 1910 census Chillicothe, Peoria, Illinois, Michael's son Philip, lists his father's birth place as "at sea."
