I'm curious who your great, great grandfather was. I know that Thomas and Mary (Kermath) had a son named William or Morris, b. 1868 in England, d. before 1881 in Ontario, Canada, but I don't know anything about other sons. I also hadn't heard of Alice.

Thomas' daughter Jessie was my great, great, grandmother. She married Samuel Dutton, May 16, 1893 in Chicago IL, and died in Los Angeles CA, in 1948.

Thomas died May 24, 1881 at the age of 34 in Ontario, Canada in the tragic sinking of a ferry boat named Victoria.

I have also been in contact with a great, great grand niece of Thomas' daughter Eva.

I have more information about other family members, as well as some of Thomas and Mary's ancestors, which I would be happy to share.
