I found your g-g-grandfather Thomas on page 117 of "The Githens Family in America 1741-1977." My grandfather was Melvin A. Githens, son of Charles H. whose father was Henry W. My father was Carl George Githens. His brother Earl had no children. My sister Melba Jean and I, Virginia Ann, both live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida having moved here in 1961 from Indianapolis, Indiana. I don't know if there are any other Githens left there; they may have all died out.

Sherwood Githens Jr. communicated frequently with my parents when I was young and so acquired my copy of the book. It was always interesting reading but this is the first I have looked on the web for info. I can fill in some blanks in my book and make some friends also.
