No sign of Thomas in 1910 census, deceased? Thomas immigrated at age 6 so we will say he came with his parents.There is a Thomas of Scotland in 1870 that is a plumber.this Thomas and his sons were gas fitters. Makes you go hmmmmm. Our cousin beleives that there was a Loretta whether she was an Elliott by birth or marriage is not sure.
Any Long Island City Queens relative out there?The family split was over a Will (if that helps)
