Thomas "Tom"

Thomas "Tom" Quinan, named after his grandfather, Thomas Quinan, was born June 21, 1902 in Wharton County. Like some of his sisters and brothers, Tom left Hungerford and moved to Galveston where Clair, Lettie, and Green were living. He worked for the Port of Galveston. In his later years he lived in Houston with his sister Pollie. Uncle Tom had 3 sons: Frank, Sam and Johnnie. Frank and Johnnie were born in Galveston and Sam in Sugarland, Texas. Uncle Tom's descendants use three spellings of his name: Sam used the original Quinan, Frank used Quinnine, and Johnnie used Quinine.
