My folks are celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary next week, I'd like fill in some blanks in the Thomas "lore" before then. :)

I would like to know where Josiah Delworth Thomas's wife, Abigail Webster is buried. Can anyone help me?

Read on for details.

I have Josiah Delworth Thomas buried in a Canon City, Colorado, cemetery. He was born on 30 August 1829 in Franklin County, PA in a town called Sylvan. His parents were Josiah S. Thomas and Martha Delworth (some say spelling should be Dilworth).

Josiah Delworth Thomas married Abigail Webster 12 February 1852.

Abigail Webster was born on 28 May 1830, Abington, Knox County, IL.

According to the headstone on Josiah Delworth Thomas's grave, she was buried in Stockdale, TX on 5 September 1876. Her father's name was Johnson Webster.

Josiah and Abigail son is my great-grandfather, Everett Webster Thomas. He was born on 10 March 1865, Indianola, IA. He lived primarily in Colorado. He died on 4 Aug 1949, Pueblo,CO.
