My grandfather was John Lawrence Leary (sometimes John Thomas). We are looking for his grand parents. His father was John and mother Ellen (Splane). Also had a brother called Cornelius. We think his father could have been an orphan for a time and his mother may have been Elizabeth Leary. Would be grateful for any information from anyone else who may know anymore.
