Thoma or Thome

I am looking for information on Mathais and Seamon Thoma they were brothers and came to Ohio. The lived in Franklin Twp, Warren County Ohio for a time. I know this because they had their children baptized at St. Mary's in Franklin Ohio. The children were baptized when he was married to second wife.

Mathias was married twice we don't know anything about his first wife other than they had four children Mathi, Allie,Caroline and Seamon.
He married Mary (Bender)Miller and had several children with her Minnie,Frank,Wilbur,Morris E could be Edward,Charles (my great grandfather),Roza and Clinton.

I do know that Seamon went by "Thome" instead of Thoma and it eventually got changed to Thomes. I am really desperate for information I want to surprise my Grandfather before he returns to Ohio from Florida.

Mathias was on the 1870 census and is gone on the 1880 census and his widow moved the family to Miami Twp, Montgomery CO, Ohio. She later sent all the children but Edward to live with other family members. Eddie was blind and stayed with his mother and worked as a broom maker.

If any of this sounds familiar please let me know. A big thanks to everyone.
