Looking for any info on the Tomlin line from the Boyd/Lawrence Co Kentucky / West Virginia area. I am a direct decendent of George Tomlin born 1870 , Kentucky .

I have Tomlins in your areas although they came a bit earlier. My main line was headed by James P Tomlin b.
14 Jan 1844, Kentucky and died 7 Nov 1910, Whatcom co, Washington. I do not have a record of a George in this family, but that is not conclusive. It would be interesting to see a picture of a Tomlin to see if I can see any family resemblance. I will keep your information close in case I run across anything that might help. Email:

I don't have Ernest in my files. I just posted about a John F. Tomlin on this thread. I have other John Tomlins. Do you have any dates or names to go with him?

I believe that would include my grandfather's family. He was Louis Tomlin (married to Audrey Peters). I do know some of his brothers were Everett and Samuel. I'll check on William for you.

I am a Granddaughter of George & Sarah Margaret Tomlin.... does anyone know where this group of Tomlin's originated from... Ireland, England, Germany??? I've have not been able to find out this info, but am VERY curious to know... I've been told there was Native American, but I have not found that at all, so I think that part is not there. I have also heard there was Welsh blood....
