I have been unsuccessful in trying to locate the geneology of my husband's family. I know that he is decended from the original Thomas Tolman family and is not a member of the family who became LDS. This is the first mention of one of his family members. Ruel Pardee Tolman was his great uncle and was head of the Smithsonian for several years. We have many of his etchings. Do you have any other information about Ruel?
