Yes !! My cousin in Seattle (and I - in New Zealand) have just found a link to this family with our James and Thomas families. Thomas b 1819 had a son John who married Ellen Thomas in 1861 Dudley Worcestershire. The entire family appears to have emigrated to America in the mid 1860's. Other branches follwed later and stayed with descendants of Thomas after the turn of the century.
If you email me back - off list - i will give you my cousins email address too and we can share info.
