Thomas McConahy's wife

I, too am a descendant of Thomas McConahy and I had always heard his wife was Minerva; however, census records indicate Thomas was married to Henrietta and it was Nathaniel who married Minerva. It appears that Henrietta died soon after the birth of Thomas Braden in 1882. By then Minerva was also widowed. Census records do not show Thomas and Minerva married or living together. I suspect young Tom, and maybe the other little ones went to live w/ Aunt Minerva, but still looking for proof.

Do you have evidence to the contrary? I would love to solve this mystery!
