Notes for DAVID O. THOMAS:
HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY AND OHIO
David O. Thomas, merchant, Radnor; the senior of the firm of Thomas & Jones, was born in Radnor Township, Delaware County, Ohio May 6, 1856; son of David O. and Margaret (Gallant) Thomas. The father was born in Montogomeryshire, Wales, March 14, 1813. The mother was born at Radnor, Delaware County, Ohio, April 25, 1818. The parents were married in America May 17, 1837; in this family there were eight children, six of whom are yet living; their names, respectively, are Joseph G., born March 1, 1838; William J., born July 26, 1840; Margaret A., born September 16, 1842; Sarah J., born November 26, 1844, died August 23, 1849; Mary E., born June 2, 1847; Martha E., born August 1, 1850 died July 1851; Sarah J., born May 2, 1853, and David O., born May 6, 1856. Joseph served his country well and faithfully in the late war. Our subject received a good common-school education; in 1877, he commenced business by clerking in a mercantile establishment in Radnor; here he continued clerking for about two years; soon after he discontinued clerking, he formed a partnership with W. H. Jones, to be known as Thomas & Jones; this firm commenced business during the spring of 1880, and, although yet in its infancy and controlled by young men, it has the name of doing as good, if not better, trade than any house in town; this house keeps the best assortment of fancy and staple groceries, dry goods, hats, caps, etc., of any town of its size in Delaware County. Mr. Thomas is a member of the Democratic party, as was his father before him; is a young man, of good, steady habits and has the respect and well wishes of the community.
