I am looking for any information about the Thomas family that immigrated to the area from Germany in 1850. The names of the family memebers are Nicholas, Mary Ann, Peter (my ggrandfather), and Joseph. They had more children born but I am really interested in finding out about the one's listed above. Any information or pictures would be greatly appreciated. I know that Peter was a postmaster. Thanks in advance

The only correction is that Lucy Thomas Martin was born in 1886 rather than 1866.

Mary Thomas was still living in 1880. She was 59 and living with her son Louis U. Thomas who was 19 years old. He had a niece Annie Zerbst living with them also. She was twelve.

According to one family tree, Nicholas Thomas died before 1870. His wife was Mary Ann Kiefer Thomas (22 April 1821 - 17 Jan 1895).
