Hi Washy,

Your information is a bit difficult to follow - it is best to transcribe the information rather than just copy and paste with all the added bits  ;D

Where is Thomas in England in 1901?
Are you saying that the baptism is him and therefore those parents?
Have you checked 1911 for the family you have posted re the numbers of children born etc?

Regards
Heywood

Hi heywood Thomas is in Manchester 1901. 1911 married living in Salford. Has birth as 29th Dec 1877 on 1939 reg & found birth on family search site. Have tried looking for family in Ireland 1911 but can't find them in Roscommon. Have info that Thomas was born on farm & his daughter visited it which I think was after his death in 1951 & family still there that's why not convince this is his family. Sorry about the added bits :)

I can only see him in 1911 - if that is him- and we are not allowed to post details as you know but there are relatives with him whose names may be useful for searching.

I know but saying that, before I knew his birth date found a family in Roscommon which fit perfectly but parent where Martin & Ellen Doherty which fit a Thomas born 15th Dec 1877 on family search site  ;D  had all the family names including a Dominic, Thomas had a son Dominic but he died not long after birth.
 
He has a brother Martin born abt 1881 Roscommon but he is on the 1901 census Manchester
Children Thomas, Alice, Michael, Dominic, Mary, Martin, Frances, James & Kathleen.
Only have this for marriage

This is the other for a Martin but different townland and date of birth.
