Hi all you Tormey guys
My brother Euene has been doing Trojan work in digging out our family tree but we need some help on two issues:
(1) Philip Tormey born in Mullingar Co Westmeath, baptised there on 11th October 1888 and landed at Ellis Island on 10th March 1911. He was my granduncle and lived in New York in 1912. Can any of you guys throw any light on this Philip Tormey i.e. whether he married where when he died. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
(2) My grandad William Tormey landed at Ellis Island aged 22 on 7th September 1912 with his wife (my grandmother). They lived in New York until some time before 1924 at which point theyreturned to Ireland. He had made a goodly amount of money in NYC. The question is why would he go against the tide and come back??? Prohibition??? Politics??? Suggestions gladly accepted - Thanks all
