Her name was actually Ellen Mary Farmer. He named his wife's brother, John Forde of Rockmount, Croghan, his brother Owen Rorke of Cloonyquin, and his son-in-law Owen Farmer of Newtown, as his Joint Trustees and Executors.

Finding this will was exciting and we are very grateful to Patrick Hume, a Thady Rorke descendant, for his expertise in reading and transcribing our initial copy. His knowledge of this early Rorke family, and also of Ireland generally, has been especially helpful to us. So, thank you, Patrick!

The District Registry's copy of Thady's will was prepared without paragraphs, so we have taken the liberty of separating the thoughts where we thought appropriate for ease of reading. We have also modified some place names to their current spellings, but have not modified any other spellings that we are aware of, and we've made only minor punctuation adjustments. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:

In the Name of God Amen.

I Thady Rorke of Camogue do make this my last Will and Testament, Revoking all others that "has" been made by me.

I will to my son John Joseph Rorke the sum of Five pounds sterling.

I will to my son Timothy Rorke the sum of One Hundred pounds sterling together with the lands of Farranawillin which I hold under lease.

I will my son Patrick Rorke the sum of Three Hundred pounds sterling together with the Farm of Lettreen.

Note: in the next sentence of the will, the name “John” was crossed out, so the bequest was intended to read: “I will to my son Joseph Rorke the sum of Three Hundred pounds sterling.”

The remaining portion of all my assets in monies, live stock and crops together with a Policy of Insurance on my own life for five hundred and odd pounds on the Alliance Office Castlerea, per Receipts and Account in my Cash Book, I will to my son James Rorke after paying the aforesaid bequests, Rents, Taxes, Funeral expenses and all other just debts due by me together with Ten pounds which I will to my granddaughter Eleanor(sic) Farmer of Newtown and Five pounds to my respected Parish Priest and Curate for Masses to be offered up for the eternal repose of my poor soul.

Should he die before he reaches that age, I will and devise the aforesaid house, offices and lands of Camogue to my son Patrick Rorke, and should neither of them survive the age of twenty-five years, I will and devise the aforesaid house, offices and lands of Camogue to my son Joseph Rorke.

I give and devise to my Trustees and Executors the lands of Mullygollan and Toneragh, if they think it prudent to hold them, in trust for maintenance, clothing and education of Patrick Rorke, James Rorke and Joseph Rorke.

I hereby appoint John Forde of Rockmount, Owen Rorke of Cloonyquin, and Owen Farmer of Newtown as Joint Trustees and Executors of this, my Last Will and Testament.

(Son) Life Changing EventLife changed dramatically for the Rorke family after the death of the children's mother. Their father James would immigrate to America without any of his children within two years, probably leaving at least the younger of the children with various relatives. Annie, then about age 13, was sent to a convent boarding school in Limerick County and became Annie O'Rourke. The brothers, Timothy, Michael, James, Patrick and Joseph, were also scattered about Ireland. The three oldest, Timothy, Michael and James, who were ages 8, 6 and 5, respectively, when their father left Ireland, would be sent to an industrial boarding school in County Galway. We have yet to find Patrick in the 1901 census, and don't know where he spent his youngest years. Joseph, who was about 2 years old when their father left Ireland, lived with his aunt and uncle Margaret and Owen Farmer.3,4
Name VariationAt school he was called Thady.5

Immigration*25 August 1904When they arrived in New York City, New York, on 25 August 1904, immigrations officials changed the spelling of their surname from "Rorke" to "O'Rorke" and processed Timothy as "Thady", very likely at his request. Each of the boys had $5.00 in his possession and Michael was recorded as having "sore eyes". The brothers reported they were in New York City to join their father, James O'Rorke, whose address was c/o J. McDermott, 12 East 27th Street New York City.8
(Son) Census State NY 19151 June 1915Thady appeared with his father and two of his brothers, Patrick and Joseph, on the 1915 New York state census taken as of 1 June 1915 at 137 East 29th Street, New York City.

Death*28 November 1825He died on 28 November 1825 at age 61.2
Burial*He was buried in the Rose Cemetery, Clarksville, Greene County, Pennsylvania.2
Relationship Note*William McKinley Jr. and John Rose were reported by the Heaton source to have been first cousins, appearing unlikely to this researcher given the almost 80 year difference in their ages. The Douglas County source reported that William Heaton's "grandfather, John Rose, and President McKinley's grandmother were cousins." If a cousin connection existed between the two, it may be discovered with additional research. McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, from 1897 to his assassination in 1901, and also the last Civil War Veteran to be elected to the presidency.1,3,4
