Hello Richard
Bernard McGinty is my gg grandfather. I am not experienced in genealogy searching but today I entered Bernard McGinty's name and found your message.
Thomas McGinty was my great grandfather. My mother told me that he was born on the ship in New York harbour. She was not aware of the 3 older children that are referred to in your message (James, John Joseph, Mary Ann) but she did know William. Thomas married Susanna Casserly and William married her sisters first Sara and later Samantha Casserly. Susanna and Thomas had 4 children: William b. 1883, Anna b. 1885, Jack b. 1887 and Mariah b. 1889. Mariah was my grandmother.
Regarding Mary Eves - It was my mother' belief that Bernard died and Mary then married a man named Eves. She knew 2 aunts as her grandfather Thomas's half sisters: Kate Eves who lived in Parkdale area of Toronto and never married and Margaret who married a man named Haffey and moved to Chicago.
That is about all I know.
