In 1995, my cousin Rita received a letter from an Alex Hart #315, 3450 Gulf Shore Blvd., N. Naples, FL 33940-3676 seeking information on the ancestors and relatives of Patrick Joseph Tormay born 1852/53 in Carrickmacross or Kells Ireland and died in 1937 in Connellsville, PA. A daughter of his who was 107 yrs old at the time of the letter said her father came from Carrickmacross or Kells part of Ireland to Connecticut in 1866 with his father John Tormay to work in a cotton mill in the Hartford, CT area. Later his mother Jane Golden/Goldrick came and at least 4 sisters joined them. At least one other brother came but do not know who he was.
After awhile, Patrick and his 4 sisters moved to western Pennsylvania in both Westmoreland and Fayette counties. Patrick Tormay married Mary Agnes O'Brien in Blairsville, PA May 9, 1878. In 1880 they moved to Dunbar Twp., Fayette Co, PA and had twin daughters one of which Wilma was Alex Hart's wife's mother. Patrick Joseph Tormay was a coal mine supervisor for the H.C. Frick Co. active in his Catholic Church and his community of Connellsville, PA. Please be in touch with Mr. Hart if you have or would like any information on Patrick Joseph Tormay's family.
