    Thomas Genealogy

    I hope this information will be of some help to the people who are int erested in the General Thomas genealogy.

    This is some information from _George Henry Thomas: The Dependable Gen eral_ by Frank A. Palumbo.

    "George H. Thomas was born July 31, 1816 in Southampton County, Virgin ia. He was one of nine children born to John C. Thomas and Elizabeth , nee Rochelle. There were six girls and three boys. George was the yo ungest boy. His two brothers were named John William (eldest) and Ben jamin and two of his sisters were named Judith Elvira and Francis G. T homas. Benjamin later communicated with George after the war from hi s home in Vicksburg, MS.

    His parents were married February 9, 1808 in Southampton County by Jos eph Curley an Episcopal clergyman. The father died April 20, 1829 at t he age of forty-five, the victim of a farm accident. George Thomas' p aternal forbearers were Welsh and English, and his maternal ancestor s were French Huguenot. His father's family, if originally Welsh, ha d lived in England for several generations before coming to America . Many members of the family died in testate, providing no clues in t racing their ancestral lineage."

    From the stone at the Thomas family plot in Virginia the name of the n ine children are: (note that Benjamin and George are not listed on th e stone as they are buried elsewhere):

    1. John William

    2. Judith Elvira (died 1903 spinster)

    3. Benjamin (may be buried in Tennessee or Mississippi)

    4. George Henry (born 31 July 1816, died in San Francisco 28 March 187 0 and buried at Troy, NY)

    5. Anne

    6. Francis G. (Fanny, died 1902 spinster)

    7. Lucy Briggs (nee Thomas)

    8. Elizabeth

    9. Juliett

    Francis F. McKinney states in a footnote in his book _Education in Vio lence: The Life of George H. Thomas_ that "the details of the Thomas g enealogy have been filed by the author with the Virginia State Library , Richmond". Perhaps you can find more information there.

    On November 17, 1852, Thomas married Frances Lucretia Kellogg of Troy , New York. George H. Thomas had no children.

    A WEB page with a lot of genealogy on the Thomas name is: http://home.
