Thomas Fox of Sligo
We are looking for much needed information on my great-great grandfather and grandmother. We understand that Thomas Fox came to the U.S.A. and started a family in New Jersey (Camden). Thomas Fox was born in 1840. He married Ellen Conners and started a family that included daughter Rosana and sons Thomas Joseph and Lawrence. All his children were born in New Jersey USA. His wife Ellen Conners was also from Ireland but we are not sure if they came to USA together and/or where they were married. We understand that Thomas Fox died in 1877. The 1880 USA Census states that his wife Ellen was the head-of-house and that her mother Cathrine Conners was living with family at that time. Cathrine Conners was born in Ireland around 1829 but not sure if Ellen and/or Cathrine were from Sligo, Ireland. We also have some information from the HMS Europe "ships log" listing a Thomas Fox but not sure of any specific connection and without dates.

I would be very greatful for any information about Thomas Fox and/or Ellen Conners.

Thank You in advance.
