I am searching for information on Thomas King born about 1788 in New York. Thomas is the brother to Leander King and the son of Samuel King. I know he married a woman named Nancy.
I believe this to be my Thomas King who had a son Thomas Norton King in Lyons, Wayne Co., New York either 1811 or 1813. Thomas Norton King marries Rebecca Copp probably in Copp Hollow/Wellsboro/Covington area of Pennsylvania.
I just got back from a trip to Lyons, New York and my search was not long enough but I did manage to make my connection from the historical building there in Lyons. This document I found states that Samuel came from Westchester county and settle in Lyons, where he purchased three hundred acres northeast of the village, and began to clear it up. He left at his death six sons, Samuel, Esau, Thomas, Jesse, Joseph and Leander and two daughters, one of whom married Morris Pope. They family scattered, and none are left in this vicinity.
Thomas is found in Cincinnati in 1818. Then he is found in Oxford, Butler Co., OH. He is supposedly buried in Oxford.
Any help on this is greatly appreciated in figuring out if this is the correct Thomas.
