I have recently started doing some research. It seems my great grandfather John George Hepple was related to the Thomas in your family tree. Is the Thomas in your family the one who married Margaret Hutchison or is it the Thomas who married Jane or possibly both? Mr grandfather, the son of John George, was Thomas Henry - he married Alice Hunt and they had four children (all now deceased), my mother Alice Maude being the youngest. My mother had two brothers, but neither had children so therer are no more Hepples in our side of the family.
