Kathy you are wonderful! These are my husbands Great Grandparents...Thomas and Delia/Della! I've saved the documents into my scrapbook pages on our genealogy program! Yes, Thomas was from County Carlow, Clonegal Ireland. He and Delia/Della lived at 2908 S Canal St in Chicago where Thomas was a horseshoer all of his life. Thomas died of Pneumonia and Delia/Della died from Heart Disease. I have death certs on both. I am just so tickled that you took the time to photograph and research them for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Now if I could only find the Murphy's of his family but, that's for another time!

Thanks again!

I'm glad I was able to help you. And thanks for the additional information about Thomas and Della. It will be helpful to me as I sort out the Chicago Whelans. If I come across anything else for Thomas or Della, I will post it.
