Thomas Hackett was my grandfather. Married to Delia Fihily. I never met him. Heard only the stories of his heroic day being shot in the line of duty in NYC. He and his wife immigrated from Ireland. My grandmother Delia was such a lovely woman that I can only imagine her heartache and pain.

Antoinette Lydon I guess this makes us cousins. Thank you all for your kind comments about my grandfather. I never knew this site existed. Thank you to who ever created it.
