Thomas McCabe, Sr.


Thomas McCabe Sr.(Thomas Jr,'s father) was a Civil War veteran and was in the 10th Tennessee Infantry Company A--C.S.A. He was wounded in battle. He came to America from Ireland, saved his money, and after the war brought his family to Tennessee. He was Born on July 3, 1819 in Galway, Ireland and died in Clarksville, Tenn. on March 11th, 1904. His wife Margaret (Connelly) McCabe, was also born in Galway, Ireland. They were married in County Kildare, Ireland. They both lived their lives as farmers in Montgomery county,Tenn. She died in 1910, and both Thomas McCabe Sr. and his wife Margaret are buried in Greenwood cemetery Section # 9 in Clarksville.
Interesting that the marriage certificate I have of their child (Thomas McCabe Jr./Marianne McCabe) in my possession, is in Latin, the official language of the Catholic church at that time. The priest who married them was Father P.J. Gleeson. I had it translated into English.
PS- I have photocopies of most of the above mentioned people too-- circa 1880's..

My connection to the above is that my maternal grandmother--Mary Anne McCabe (1883-1953) married Charles Kearney Hall Sr (1874-1949) my grandfather, in February, 1905. They in turn had my father Charles Kearney Hall Jr. (1921-1973) and I was born June 27th,1943.
