I believe E. W. King's father, Thomas Waldron King, was my great-great-grandfather John King's brother, and that their parents were Thomas King, who was a Church of Ireland scripture reader in Selerna, County Galway, and Elizabeth.

Here's what I have on Thomas & Elizabeth's children.

I'm basing their siblinghood on the fact that the Clifden marriage records of Mary, Thomas Waldron, and William John list their father as Thomas King, scripture reader.

1. Mary Maria King (1836-1893)

2. John King (?-?)

3. Thomas Waldron King (~1850-1917)

4. William John King (~1853-)

Leslie, CLOGHER CLERGY AND PARISHES (1929), Thomas Waldron King was 68 at his death in Dec 1917, which would make his birth year 1849; per his marriage record, he was 22 on his marriage date, 28 July 1975, which would make his birth year 1852 or 1853. At the time of his marriage he was living in Selerna, County Galway, and working as a schoolteacher; so was his wife.
