Thomas MORAGHAN (caution: relationship to brother John not verified) [Parents] was born in possibly Dec 1820 in possibly Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 21 Dec 1820 in Killukin, Co. Roscommon. Thomas married 'UNKNOWN'.

Thomas may have been born in December 1820 as a baptismal record has been located for a Thomas Moraghan (sic), son of a Dominic Moraghan and Mary Killelea, who was baptised on 21 December 1820 in Killukin, Co. Roscommon. See my notes above for Thomas's father for my reason for thinking Dominic and Mary could be the parents of our Thomas. Several public family trees on the Ancestry website have Thomas's birth year and birth place as 1790 and Cleaheen, Tumna, Co. Roscommon. However, I have seen no evidence to support this. The same trees show his wife to have beeen Annie Wynne who was born around 1810 in Co. Sligo and died in 1870 in Boyle, Co. Roscommon, but I have been unable to find proof of this.

Although Thomas is likely to have been born in the Roscommon/Leitrim area, his son James was born in King's County (Co. Offaly) and his son Pat in Co. Westmeath, which leads to to believe Thomas was not a farmer, at least not in the early 1850s, when James and Pat were born. The fact that both James and Pat were a soldier and militia sergeant respectively suggests that Thomas himself might also have been an army man, which would have involved postings around the country.
 
!My husband, Joe Gordon, has been DNA-matched by Ancestry with both a descendant of Thomas's son James and a descendant of Thomas's son Pat; Joe's great-great-grandfather was John Morahan who farmed in Kiltoghert, Co. Leitrim. The type of match indicates that John and Thomas were very close relatives, perhaps even brothers, which is why  have positioned Thomas as a brother of John's in the family tree. However I have no proof of such a connection - he may have been a first cousin, for example - so I have added a caution.

It is possible that Thomas, who appears to have used the Moraghan spelling of his surname, was also related to brothers Owen and Roger Moraghan who were born in Cleaheen, Tumna, Co. Roscommon around the 1800s.
