In Reply to: THOMES (THOMBS<THOMS<TOMBS) in Maine by Krista of 49

My great grandfather named Edward Calderwood Thomes originally from Portland Maine. Understand there were at least three brothers in the barrell staving business in Portland. Married Della Shaw (John Shaw from Peak's Island)who was in the fishing industry. Edward & Della had one child - Edward Marshall Thomes who grew up in Portland - graduating from the Un of Maine with an Engineering degree.

Edward M. moved to southern Missouri after graduating from college in 1906 with an Army Corps of Engineers job in Mississippi.

Lost track of the "Maine" family heritage when Edward C. & Della moved to be with their son (Edward M. Thomes)in the early 1920's.

Edward M. married Attie Byrd McGee. My father, William Sr, was born in 1912 in Poplar Bluff Mo and is recently deceased.

I was born in 1945 and have a son Scott Taylor Thomes of Crested Butte, CO.

We have a bound family album of pictures (20 or thirty full 8x10's) with a Portland photographer address (no names with the pictures). We also have a few of the Shaw's home on Peak's Island.

Exact dates of Edward Calderward and Edward M. is available if this "fits" with your search.
