  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Year of birth would be 1775-1776, according to age (90 years) in 1866 Irish Civil Record of Death, available for purchase from ifhf.rootsireland.ie and a copy of which is in the possession of Robert M. Simon. Named as Thomas Carre. Informant for death certificate, who was present at death, was John Carre, who can be assumed to be the John Carr from Drumgorman who was born about 1817, and thus, his son.
      Thomas Carr is named as the father of Jane Moss (née Carr) in her Pennsylvania death certificate.

      OCCUPATION: Farmer (1866 Irish Civil Death Record)

      ADDRESS: Drumgorman Townland, Mountcharles District, County Donegal, Ireland (1857 Griffiths Valuation; 1866 Irish Civil Death Record).

      LAND RECORDS:
      - Drumgorman is located west southwest of Mountcharles Town. The Conyngham family who owned the land in the area descended from Scottish settlers during the Plantation of Ulster in the 1600s, and which included a former Dean of the Anglican Diocese of Raphoe. It is likely part of the family's Mountcharles Estate, and rental rolls and other records from the early 1800s dealing with this estate are in the National Library of Ireland, Manuscript Division, in Dublin (Ms. 35,395).
      - There is not an entry for a Carr in the 1828 Tithe Applotment Book for Inver Parish, Drimgorman Townland, but the manuscript has a name that has been read as Thomas McShane which may be Thomas McElhare (McElhar is an interchangeable surname with Carr). The rental rolls, mentioned above, would probably give a clearer view of whether this is the same person, or the year in which Thomas Carr first came to Drumgorman.
      - In the 1857 Griffith's Valuation of Tenements for County Donegal, Thomas Carr is listed as the prime tenant for Lot 3A and 3B in Drumgorman Townland, Mountcharles District. His tenancy amounted to just over 31 acres, and included a house that he sublet to Anne Mulreany. The land he leased was owned by the Marquis of Conyngham.

      DEATH:
      Full date of death given as 2 December 1866 in Irish Civil Record of Death, available for purchase from ifhf.rootsireland.ie and a copy of which is in the possession of Robert M. Simon. Informant for death certificate, who was present at death, was John Carre. Died in Drumgorman.
