My ancestor is John Toolan who was born abt. 1825 in Ireland and traveled to NYC from Liverpool in 1848 who settled in Beaver Dam, Baltimore County MD and died there in a flu epidemic bet. 1860-1864. I have been told by a Texas MD historian that she believes the Toolan Family in the Texas MD area were from Strokestown, County Roscommon, Ireland. There was a 10-year younger Edward Toolan also living in the same area. Does this click with anyone who knows about the Strokestown evictions of 1848?
