Hello Isobel, Jessie Connelly was my grandmothers sister, so know about her going to Canada and then on to the USA.
I haven't been able to find a death for Thomas Connelly Sr either. Not even when its spelt ConnOlly, which is sometimes the case.
The other Traynors that went to the USA might explain why Thomas, later Reverand Thomas also did. Rev. Thomas died in 1969, Florida. Have more info on him if you wish. Have been trying to find a death date for his father Peter, unable to so far. I would also like to find which seminary Rev Thomas studied at. Have been in touch with seminary's in Wexford, Ireland but no luck finding him there. He went to the USA in 1918, the travel documents state that his nearest relative is his grandfather Michael Traynor, High street Lochee. Thomas's last permanent address is given as Wexford.
Jessie died in 1958 while visiting her sister Rita in Canada. Ritas daughter is still alive and living in Minnesota
