    My paternal Gr Gr Grandfather was Thomas Whalen (Whelan??), born Jan 1829, died Oct 1903; immigrated from Ireland in 1849/1850, possibly through Philadelphia, PA (based on the DNA story given to me by ancestry). My DNA story says I am from Donegal, in northern Ireland. Trying to find additional ancestors, family crest, etc. Thank you
