Other than what I posted on this forum, I do not have any substantial info on the Thoms ancestors. But, it seems that there were some Thoms families in Virginia before my Thoms family arrived. There are also Thoms familie that went to Canada, Quebec I think. DuPont is a French name, I have a Dupont ancestor but she has not descendents with that name, that was in Mississippi early 1700s and she was from a different line than my Thoms line. Sorry I do not have more at this time.
