Re: Cutler Salmon b. Indiana 1820?/French Camp California
Greetings Cousin John:
I must say it is amazing to hear from you.I am relatively new at this whole genealogy thing, and I have very very very few family members (On either side) that have expressed interest.
My cousin recently gave me the information regarding Cutler Salmon.Every summer, we have a big Thomas Family reunion at the Fire House in Modesto.It was a few years back that he got more info, and he passed it on to me a few weeks ago.
My great Uncle, Edward Allen Thomas (B. 30 May 1930, California) recently informed me of a family graveyard and an historic family brick home in French Camp, CA.It is clear he combined these two points of history into one story with some confusion--he is old and he is the second youngest of nine children.
Oh boy, do you have lots of family in the Central Valley of California.I was born in Doctor's Hospital, in Modesto, California, in 1963.I have at least 22 immediate family members in the Modesto area---and many many more that I am currently discovering.
As far as I know, Janet Reynolds (Your Great, great, great, great Aunt?) married John Cutler Salmon.They had a daughter named Mary J. (B. 1842 in Wisconsin).Mary J. Salmon married John Fox (B. 1840 in Maine).
Out of the 6 or 7 children they had together, one was my Maternal Great, Great Grandmother, Carrie Luella Fox.
Carrie Luella Fox married Alexander Borges Thomas (A handsome yount immigrant from the Azores Islands) and they had many children together.
There is a place called Fox Grove on the River in the Central Valley (I am pretty certain it is the Tuolumne River) that is named after our family.
I am excited to hear about any information you may have on family history.You should know, as well, that you are now formally invited to our annual Thomas Family Reunion this summer.
Please call me at your earliest possible convenience.
