From 1801 to 1922, there were 160 John O'Briens baptized in Tipp who were sons of Patrick O'Briens. So more info would be needed to identify your John's family.
About what year was he born?
Who was his wife? his children? his siblings?
Where did he emigrate to?
What was his occupation?
Any info you can supply would be helpful.
Thank you, Patricia for your suggestions.
As I mentioned, John Thomas O’Brien was born March 25, 1842 to Patrick and unknown O’Brien. I am aware of no siblings though some family trees have mentioned a sister Ann born in 1937 and a sister Johanna on August 15, 1936. No proof or source is given for either of the sisters in those family trees.
His father Patrick was a farmer in Niagara County, New York state after they immigrated in 1854, so I assume Patrick was a farmer in Ireland as well. John was a farmer all his life in America. I have found no immigration records. The son, John, the one I am researching, travelled to Wisconsin, likely during the Civil War, and in Fox Lake Wisconsin on November 9, 1870, he married Julia Evelyn Cruden, she being born there, her parents coming from Ireland.
