Thomas Healy was one of 5 brothers to emigrate to America, leaving wife and 3 children behind in Cork Ireland never to be seen or heard of again, Thomas was employed as an ward attendant in the New York State Menta; Hospital, at Central Islip, New York. There is no reason to believe that Thomas was in touch with his 4 brothers who also emigrated to the USA, some of them living in New York too.

Two years after his death Thomas's wife who still lived in Cork wrote a letter to the Irish consul in New York asking for help to find Thomas as her health was deteriorating , not aware that Thomas had died two years earlier, the letter was forwarded to his brother William in Westchester New York who was not able to give any information about Thomas also unaware that Thomas had passed away.
