  1. Good info. Thanks for sharing. I am just curious, were Thomas Jasper and Mary Jane; b-1848, twins?

    Best wishes,

  2. Actually, no, that was a typo. He was born in 1850. He is somewhat of a mystery and I actually just changed his name to Saumuel Thomas. There were two people named Thomas in the same county and I was not certain which one was him until just now. As always a work in progress! Thanks for asking!

  3. my name is clint wade son of hugh joseph wade born in granite city ill. i now live in mt vernon ill.
