I found the Philip Gates research also.I am a direct descendant also, different branch,John Thread (b 1759) m. Elizabeth King; their son, Robert b 1806 m. Louisa Mason; their son, John Franklin Thread [Sr.]'s daughter, Emma is my great-great grandmother.I have built up that line of my family through the websites and censuses myself.My aunts had nothing written down (that could be found) for that side.
Right now, I am trying to figure out whose children crossed the Atlantic with James Thread(as Threadway) on the Napoleon arriving in NYC on 9/26/1828.Elsewhere, I found narrative that James came to Illinois, then went back to England to escort family members to Ilinois.On the ship manifest is, I think, his brother, William's wife, Mary.I have no information on their children, so can not id: Jane (age 5), John (age 3), David (age 1-1/2) and William (age 3 months).
I would LOVE any images of documents you have found and tell me what you are lacking & want.
