As mentioned before I probably have the most complete tree ever done on this family with over 500 records etc. dealing with all 14 children.
I have not as yet found that one person who has the background and pictures of Thomas and Jane. I do know most of the people you have mentioned--1st cousins, uncles etc. The one person who would have had all the answers was Violet, daughter of James, who died at 102 and was the oldest living member of this family. Unfortunatly I was not into genealogy when she worked on our farm.
I do have more questions though on John and would like to get some things from you as well as share my info. The best way to do this is to contact me on my personal email:
