Thomas is apparently alive in 1881, but not with the family.
They moved from Ireland to Lancashire between 1870 and 1875.
Can't find them in 1871 in England, so presumably still in Ireland then.

PM

It is more info on Thomas and Martha Dunn that I am looking for. I've filled in their children and grandchildren but so far can't get a line on them and their origins. Robert is my grandfathers father.
