About Thomas 1832 Clowry

Thomas, Robert and Mother Brigid left Ireland in September, 1949, went to Liverpool, and there took passage on the merchant ship "L. Z." so called after her first mate, the son of a Boston merchant, and her owner

We came up the Hudson River in a boat to Albany, thence by the N.Y.C.R.R., then a rickety concern, to Buffalo. It took us more than two days to get there. Thence by boat to Detroit, and thence by the M.C.R.R., still worse then the first named, to New Buffalo, at the foot of Lake Michigan where we had to remain about two days waiting for a boat to come from Chicago to take us across. We finally landed in Chicago in the latter part of October of that year. Mother had $500.00 in gold (a large sum for anyone to have at that time in Chicago).
