1842: Married Mary Gleeson at St Mary’s Catholic Church, Sydney.  They had 2 children.

Mary was married as Mary Hayes, she married Michael Hayes in 1841.  Sometime between 1842 and 1848 Thomas must have died, but no death date found, because Mary then married James A Curran in 1848 and had 3 children.
