This is all the information I have about him at this time, however, I am looking for the father of John B., Nicholas M., Martha, and Sarah E.Thom.These children were born between 1834 and 1844. Their mother was Sarah W. Thom, maiden name unknown. Sarah W. later married James H. Bradley Sr. in Jackson Co.,IL in 1846. Sarah W. was probably born in NJ. The unknown father probably died in Jackson Co., IL between 1844-46. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
