Oops! my mistake. Daniel Thomas was born abt 1797 Maryland and died at Keeler 19 Apr.1873. Wife, Elizabeth (Martin) Thomas born abt. 1806-1807 Maryland and died 16 or 18th of Apr.1893 at Keeler.

The James you found was the older son, James William Thomas (1832-1913). Thanks for runing accross that one. The name of the informant was his daughter Floda E.(Thomas) Conkling who was Mrs.Joseph Conkling.

There were three brothers that lived to adulthood (1)James W. Thomas, that you just found (2)George M. Thomas (1835-1923) no exact birth date for him, but family record gives his death as 5 Apr 1923, but no place of death. (3) Henry Byron Thomas (our ancestor which we have all his info.)

Hoping to find death certificate or obituary for Daniel and Elizabeth or any other info that would confirm their parentage.

Thanks for responding, I really appreciate it.
