  • Notes 
    • Possibly the Thomas Cary in 1850 West Brookfield census (Sept.1850 stamped page No. 79, image 17 on Ancestry.com) living as Laborer with Ellen Crone and son Tim. The previous household on the same page has another Cary family, John, age 37 and Ellen also aged 37 and four children Michael, John, Catherine and Daniel ages 17, 14, 10, and 4. John owned Real Estate valued at $500. The household before the John Cary family belongs to Patrick and Sabrina O'Day.

      [If this is the correct Thomas Cary it would support the idea that the person enumerated in 1855, 1860, and 1870, may not have been the son of Thomas Cary, and could be the same person as Michael Harrington found in 1900 Chicago census and referred to as Thomas' brother in a death notice.]
