Hi Shirley,
Thomas was my gggrandfather. His first wife was Leona Ann Simpson d/o John Rose Simpson. I still don't know who his father was but a great aunt of mine said that his father's name was also Thomas. Can't find confirmation on that tho. Also not sure but I think that his mother was Sarah Emmaline. Don't really know but I keep looking. Thomas and Leona's daughter, Bertha Drain married Allen Jackson Holman and had 2 daughters. Al, as he was called died in 1910 and in 1912 Bertha married William Henry Spencer an attorney from Fayettville and they had 4 children. What info are you looking for regarding Thomas? I wish I had more on him. I have a picture of Thomas with his 2nd wife Missie. A cousin of mine, a Spencer, said Thomas was a jeweler who did watch and clock repair. Also was a postmaster and an auctioneer. You may email me at nrward2@hotmail.com if you'd like. Hope to hear from you soon.
Natalie
