About Our Family Research

Have great family history on my mothers side (back to mid 1400's) but have been stuck on my fathers side for many years. Know info for my father (Edward), grandfather (James), great-grandfather (Thomas), but have been stuck on my great-great grandfather (Thomas). His grave is in a family cemetery in Lindsey, Nebraska but the headstone says only "Aged 104 years". Have researched birth/death records, church journals (in Latin), and many years of attempting to read through old newspapers. I have been told by uncles that the two Toms and James sailed to America about 1856 and were to arrive at Ellis Island but were blown off-course by a storm at sea and landed in Nova Scotia instead.
