i dont know what an ftm site is but my computer automatically handles most things like that and i'd be most interested
my father (richard) has some of William o thomas' tools etc.
my grandfather (joseph) was the unofficial family historian till he died in 1973. Ill post a news blurb here from 19th century that mentions Ross. My grandfather was adamant that Ross was not williams father. Also, there were vague tales about a family of young children being distributed to relatives.
there was a family bible from 17th century and a surveying instrument of a john thomas but i last saw them
40+ years ago.
and I plan a trip to Ohio next summer to try to finally get it all straightened out and credible.
