In a quick search, I came across several Thomas Finnegans married to Mary Anns with various spellings. If you could give us a little more info, even just the area of the United States like Maurren asked, that would be helpful.  Thanks!

They lived in Charleston, SC after they arrived in the US. I don't know when or where they married or when they arrived. He fought in the civil war for the south and died. They had a son in 1858(my great grandfather Thomas  E. Finnegan)
I left a comment but not sure if you are notified?
