Research Note

According to Thomas Death Certificate both his parents were born in England, unfortunately they are not named. His daughter Mary Coombs Pomeroy's transcription from New York City Municipal Deaths 1795-1949 notes that her father's birthplace is Bristol, England. This needs to be confirmed, to date I have been unable document his birth.
