Owen Thomas and James Thomas are believed to have been brothers, who were listed in the 1850 census in Henderson county, KY and also listed in Starling's history of Henderson, KY as city trustees.  Owen Thomas and his family then moved to Butler county, KY where son raised a family--George S. Thomas--the father of Erastus Thomas.  I have seen in some genealogies that Robert Thomas who came to Henderson, Kentucky about 1812 from Virginia-may have been the father of Owen and James.  I would also like to know if they had a brother or cousin named "Elijah Thomas" born about 1804 in Virginia who also lived in Henderson, KY at the same time as Owen and James.

You have to be careful with those Owen Thomas' Owen, James, Michal were real popular names for the Thomas' back in the early 1800's I think they were Welsh and originated with the Quakers back in Pennsylvania. I've put my Owen on the back burner right now, but if you see a connection please let me know.

This Owen had a brother named James also: Thomas-9893. He may be the grandfather

Then try Jonathan Thomas Sr., (Thomas-9894) son of above, born 1762 Orange County NC died 1838 in Grayson County, VA, May have served with Over the Mountian Men in Rev War. Married Patience Bourne 1786 in Montgomery County VA (now Wyeth)

His son, Owen was born 1791 in VA and agin, this Owen had a brother named James also!!!

I should have links on the page.
