I am searching for a Thomas Rigney, born in Ireland (Offaly?)about 1819. He came to New Orleans, La. USA on the ship "united States", and arrived there on january 31,1849.
He was 30 at the time, and sailed with Ann Rigney, age 22,(wife?)and Hugh (my great grand father) aged 4, and Matthew , aged 2.
Anybody who knows anything about Thomas, Ann, or Matthew, please contact me.
