Thanks for the nice reply....My Thomas was born 1802. Actually think he was a twin to brother James Roddy b. 1802 all in Wayne Twp. Mifflin Co. PA. Do you have locations on your people? I actually like your names.As within this family the father was James, the first son was William, a daughter Catherine, then Thomas and James.William went on to marry and named his children. Thomas, William, Samuel etc.As you probably already know, the family names ran through each generation...so there is a possibility there might have been a connection somewhere.
