Wow! Thanks, Sandra, for so many pieces of the puzzle. After I've put them all together, I'll see if I can find any descendants. With any luck they might know something about Thomas Keating - even if he came from Limerick would help :-)

Try the Catholic Church in Pittsburg PA. for the marriage of Timothy Keating to Ann Garry. They often have much more information than the protestant ones.
