Foley of NW Ohio

Journal by smileskiles

My great-grandfather Thomas J Foley was a man of mystery; it wasn't until recently we were able to piece together records to find he had alternative identities, including Thomas Coleman. Son of Michael and Mary (Walsh) Foley, Thomas had four siblings, Alfred, Marguerite, Mary, and John. Thomas married Olive Teeter and had 9 children with her; Katherine, Michael, Alfred, Edward, James, Theresa, Nora, Margaret, and Thomas Jr. He divorced Olive and married Doris Berrie with whom he had only one child, Patricia, my grandmother. He also at some point was married to a woman named Josephine Heptig, but it is unclear as to whether or not they had any children. Thomas lived from his birth in Pennsylvania in 1895 until his death in Ohio in 1949. I have managed to identify the parents of Thomas' mother Mary Walsh as being Coleman and Catherine (Geary). His father's parents were Timothy and Margaret (Moriarty) and they had another son named John. Thomas was a first generation American, the son of Irish immigrants.
I do not know the approximate years or much more to the family lineage than what I have shared here, and any additional information would be appreciated.
