Re: Tong family Maryland to West & South

Hi Malissia,
Thomas Tong was arrested for horse stealing in 1808. He escaped from jail. He was also the 1st prisoner in the Chillacothy? jail. Thomas always lived on the frontier. He may have been keeping 1 step in front of the law.

It looks like his grandson, John Tong son of James, was involved in the horse stealing. I probably have mixed this up.

Thomas and John may have been brothers, father and son, or grandfather and grandson. For some reason I have all 3 combinations listed. You might want to put out a new query on Genforum, and maybe you will find someone who has the proof. This seems to have happened in Ross Co., Ohio, so that gives you another place in which to look.

Good Luck, and let me know what you find out. I'll e-mail you what I have under separate cover, and if you can fill in any holes for me that would be great.

Good Hunting, and Happy New Year,
