  Thomas, Evan 1789 Sarah Booth (1/29/1789) bk. 1, page 12
 John 1789 Sarah Owin  1/12
 Arthur 1792 Mary Haynes  1/19

 Amy 1793 George Muirhead  1/22
(There are others, Mary 1804, Mary 1806, etc.)
Note:  From this, I would guess that at least Evan, John, Arthur, Ezekiel, Elizabeth and Amy may be siblings.  Maybe Jacob also.  From sources, we show Rev. John serving 20 years as minister in Champaign Co., OH, came to IL
1825; so that would have [some of] them leaving VA (WV) late 1700's or very early 1800's.

Per Vergene Lowther, LDS #163-830 Harrison Co., WV Family Records S to T:
 She found a record of an Evan Thomas b. 2/28/1752 in Chester PA.  He d. Feb. 10, 1840 Harrison Co., VA.  He was m. to Lydia Ann Dike; they had 10 children.  Any connection to our line?

>From "The Monongalia Story" by Earl L. Core, 1974, in the Clarksburg-Harrison Co. Public Library, the Thomas's may have lived and/or had land in Frederick Co., VA or Loudon Co., VA.  See Word file "Thomas Family" for more info from this source.

Notes for REV. JOHN THOMAS:
Per Vera Fletcher, Ezekiel and Mary Thomas came on the same ship as the Owen Family.  John Thomas came from Wales with his parents when he was age 10. Lived Harrison Co., Va. (1800 or earlier) and Urbana, Ohio.  Later lived
Peoria & Galena, Illinois.  The family reports they (John and Sarah?) are buried Dixon, Illinois (unmarked graves).  A brother of Arthur Thomas.  John was granted (400?) acres along Booth Creek, adjacent to John Owen's grant
(Harrison Co. VA/WV?).

John was granted 400? acres along Booth Creek next to 400-acre grant of John Owen (Sarah's father).

     John Thomas, p. 22, James Neal, assignee to John Thomas, 400 acres on the Left Hand Fork of Ten Mile Creek, at the mouth of Turkey Run, to include his settlement made in 1771 (35).  (This may be our John Thomas.)

Per Vera, no record until the Peoria, IL residence and Galena, IL (I had asked if Rev. John Thomas went to Russelburg, KY (mid 1820's) and Edwardsville, IL (1827) also.)
Note:  The note about Russelburg, KY, was taken from an old record book in the Bureau County Court House, she told me.

(NOTE:  The following six paragraphs are from "History of Champaign Co. (Ohio), 1881") THOMAS, John "settled [before 1805] about three miles south of Urbana...and had a distillery up the creek between where the Newell and
Donavan houses now stand."  (Page 214)  (NOTE:  Would the distillery have been used to purify/distill water?  Or alcohol?)

"Following we append the names of some of the Baptist ministers:  John THOMAS..."  (Page 415)

"Rev. William Haller, in an interesting communication to the "History of Logan and Champaign Counties," furnishes a brief description of the personal appearance of the most remarkable of these men [ministers], together with
their peculiarities.  We extract the description verbatim:  'I take the Baptist brethren first.  John THOMAS was a small, light [in weight?] man, dark hair and complexion, deliberate, cautious, not venturesome, and possessed of great strength and endurance for one of his size.'"  (Page 416)

"The Baptist Church-located one-half mile south of Westville, on the Valley Pike, is recorded as one of the oldest in the township.  In 1806, some of the members of the King's Creek Church, in Salem Township..."  "The Mad River Baptist Association was formed in 1812...In 1819, a log building was erected on the site of the present building.  A few years later the society concluded to put up a brick edifice, which was occupied for a number of years.  The present building was afterward erected."  (Page 418)  "Since its organization the following ministers have proclaimed the glad tidings of
eternal life:  John THOMAS...E. D. THOMAS..."  (Page 419)

"The earliest township election, of which we have any record, was held at the house of Isaac Gray on the 8th day of October, 1811...Number and Names of Electors.  23.  John Thomas..."  "That the above is the poll-book of the
first election held in the township cannot be stated with accuracy, but it serves to show who were the voters and householders at that early day." (Page 533)  (Wayne Twp.)

Goshen Twp.  Marriages.  The following are among the earliest marriages of the settlers of the township...John OWEN to Jane Minturn, September 27, 1808, by John THOMAS...Daniel Rutan to Mary Riddle, February 15, 1810, by
John THOMAS, Justice of the Peace [et al].  (Page 593)

There are four pages of John Thomas's in the Bureau of Land Management, www.glorecords.blm.gov, records for Illinois.

some enumerations were from the 1830 Fed. census.)  Thomas, John--same info as for Henry.

Per "Biographies of the Citizens of Lee Co., IL," "John [Thomas?], Abraham, Jr., Daniel [Obrist I assume] and families moved to the Palmyra Twp. of Lee Co. in 1836."

Per "Portrait and Biographical Album of Peoria Co., IL," John Thomas moved to Champaign Co., Ohio, when Francis was a child; came to Illinois 1825, Peoria Co.,  Galena lead mines, Lee Co.; died about 80 yrs. age; widow moved
to Bureau Co., IL and died there.  (Possible res.:  Chillicothe Twp. or Hallock Twp., Peoria Co.  Peoria was Ft. Clark then.)  Also, "That section [meaning Champaign Co., Ohio] was wild and unbroken, inhabited chiefly by
Indians, and the family were surrounded by dangers and met with many privations.  After having improved a farm and residing thereon some years, John Thomas, in the year 1825, came to Illinois, obtaining a claim on new
land in Peoria County.  A few years later he removed to Galena where for some years he was interested in lead mines.  He finally sold out and settled in Lee County, where he died when about four-score years of age.  His widow
remained there for some years after his death, but finally removed to Bureau  County, where she died full of years."

Per "Big Bureau and Bright Prairies," page 189, Henry Thomas' uncle had been a scout during the Revolution, and had been rewarded by a land grant of 400 acres in what  was later known as West Virginia.  (Note:  Rev. John Thomas
is Henry's only uncle that I now have record of.)

Per "Biographies of the Citizens of Lee Co., IL," page 515, "John Thomas was a very early pioneer in northern Illinois.  John, son of Ezekial [sic] and Mary Thomas, was born within the Country of Wales in 1752.  In the 1780's,
John worked as a scout in the western Virginia Territory.  It is in this time period, just after the Revolutionary War, that John got ideas of settling down.  He met [sic] Sarah Owens [sic] in Harrison County, VA, now known as West Virginia, and married her after a brief courtship. Interestingly, Sarah was born in mid Atlantic on her way to America in
1762.  Her mother died giving her life and her father, unable to care for her, adopted her to Ezekial and Mary Thomas."  Also, "John served as a Baptist preacher in Ohio.  He later served as Champaigne [sic] County Clerk.  In the 1820's the desire to travel west provoked the move to Galena, Illinois and the move to Dixon, Illinois in 1837."

The same source as the preceding but this article submitted by Donna A. Thomas Wright, "John Thomas, with Noah, went to Dixon in 1835.  They both served in the Blackhawk Indian War.  Family stories say John was an Indian Scout and Baptist minister."

Notes for SARAH OWEN:
Per Vera Fletcher, John Owen and his wife, parents of Sarah, were on the same ship as John Thomas, age 10, and his parents.  Sarah was born at sea, on a ship from Wales to the U.S.  Her mother died and was buried at sea.
Family reports John and Sarah are buried Dixon, Illinois (unmarked graves).

Per "Portrait...," after John's death, his widow moved to Bureau Co., IL and died there.

There was no Owen or Owens shown in Lee Co., IL "the old settlers record, information from 1830s to 1850 (the record compiled in Aug. 1880)" as sent to me by joanach@wayfarer1.com 5/30/02.

MARY HAYNES, April 10, 1792, Harrison Co., (West) Virginia22,23.

Notes for ARTHUR THOMAS:
Per Vera Fletcher's article on Henry Thomas, they found the bodies of John and Arthur the next  day and buried them near Urbana, Ohio.

Per "History of Champaign Co. (Ohio), 1881,"  THOMAS, Arthur settled [before 1805] about four miles north of Urbana.  He, "who was a Captain in the war of 1812, was ordered, with his company, to guard the public store at Fort
Findlay.  On his return, having lost his horses, he and his son separated from the rest of the company to hunt for them.  They encamped at the Big Spring, near Solomonstown, about five miles north of Bellefontaine, and the
next morning were found killed and scalped.  Their bodies were brought to Urbana by a deputation of citizens."  (Page 214)  Concord Township.  George Goslee...was united in marriage with Julia Ann Kenton, Aug. 4, 1845.  She
was born March 25, 1820, and is a daughter of James and Elizabeth (THOMAS) Kenton.  Elizabeth was a granddaughter of Arthur THOMAS, who, with his son John, was murdered at the Big Spring, by the Indians, on their return from
Hull's surrender.  The Kentons came to this State from Kentucky, about 1810.  (Page 790-791)  (Note:  I don't know if Arthur had other children besides John and Henry.  I don't know who Elizabeth's parents were.)
