I am trying to learn the identity of the parents of an Irish Born Confederate Soldier. According to his tombstone in Augusta Georgia, Thomas Joseph Haney was born in 1841 in County Tipperary Ireland. Would there be any Baptism Records that would be easily searchable? What other records might there be? I would love to find out information about this man. I have never found him listed with any parents in any census in the US and he died shortly after the war ended so I don't have much to go on. There were actually quite a few Irishmen in his same Regiment but this is the only who I have been able to narrow down a County of birth for.
Thanks for any help.
I posted this query serveral years ago on rootsweb.com and got information regarding a John Haney of the Parish of Lisbunny, Townland Kilconane, Nenagh. He was the tenant of Thomas Hackett, Esq. This was in 1850...also a John Haney who "has a house and sharing 3 acres 1 rood and 25 perches with James Gleeson" not sure if these are the same man or not and also can't tie either to Thomas Joseph Haney.
