I'm in search of the family of Thomas J. Thomas, b. 19 April 1820 Kentucky, d. 11 May 1891 in Camargo, Douglas, Illinois.
I believe he had a first wife before Sarah Thompson, mostly because he is much older than she, also because there are age gaps between children.
Children (am still verifying the older children): Basel Thomas 1851 –
James E. Thomas 1855 –
Adeline Thomas 1856 – 1940
Eliza Ann Thomas 1861 – 1933
Jane Thomas 1863 –
William Edward Thomas * 1868 –
Albert Thomas 1870 –
George W. Thomas 1875 –
Tommie Thomas (appears on 1880 census as newborn)
Am looking for the KY location from which he hailed, verify Indiana locations (two children were born there), and verify the children. There appears to be an "older" Thomas Thomas (with neighbor Frank Thomas) who had an original land purchase from the gov't in 1824 in Indiana.
