This orphan has been claimed by: Elizabeth Nicol

Thomas is not really a relative of mine but he is the stepson of my g.g.g.grandmother Mary Cooney. Mary married Patrick Cooney after her second husband (Alexander Barclay) died. Thomas was at the orphanage at the same time as William and James Barclay so they probably knew each other. No more records of Thomas were found after he left the Orphanage.
