About Thomas Carew
I found a 1900 US census record (New York) which listed a Thomas and Jannie Carew, living with Thos' brother William. However the dates did not match the birth dates (Thomas born 1873; William born 1864). It said Thos and Jannie were married in 1897.
Also found an immigration record for a Thomas Carew, arr. May 9 1904 at Ellis Island on the Celtic from Queenstown (residence: Tipperary).
According to Christina Hazen ( http://genforum.genealogy.com/carew/messages/337.html ), married in New York.
A Knockgraffon census record for 1901 shows a Thomas Carew m. Catherine. This must be a cousin.
Not clear if his birthdate was 1 September or 9 January, 1870 or 1872.
