    Notes 
    • I have listed Thomas as a brother of Patrick Nestor Sr. However, their exact relationship is unclear. Patrick Sr. died in 1870, leaving Patrick Jr. a 13 year old orphan. Patrick Jr. lived with Thomas and his family for a time, and members of both families were buried at Old St. Joseph's cemetery in Newton, New Jersey. Also, Thomas and Patrick were both from Ireland and were close in age.

      If anyone has additional information on Thomas, I would like to hear from you.
