Thanks! I'm looking forward to finding out what your grandfather knows. By the way, what are his parents' names? I have 2 sets of Thomases. One set has a Thomas that married a Wilson. I believe we've found a connection with that Wilson - Lydia Wilson who married Frank Thomas? Emelie Jacques Thomas is the matriarch in my other set of Thomases. She married a Pierre Thomas. They were originally from the Washington area and moved to Ville Platte. I don't know much about her other than that. Hopefully, your grandfather knows something. However, I'm interested in whatever he knows on the Thomases/Wilsons. Thanks again.
