Thomas Joseph Hennessey was married with Four Boys. He stood up for his values, was a man of principle. He left instruction for his sons to be well mannered and well behaved men, not to hit a woman, and to do as their mother told them. Thomas loved his wife and children very much. - Kerrie Lewis (great grand-daughter)
