Yes. I have found some information regarding Jeremiah Thoms. The Jeremiah Thoms I was referring to in my original post is my great grandfather. He married Ellen Clark(e) and they had numerous children together. Many of the children did not survive an epidemic that went around Newfoundland in the late 1800's. Only Ellen (Nellie) Thoms survived. She married William "Sonny" George Pike and eventually moved to the United States and settled in Brooklyn where they raised their children.

Since posting my original message, I have found out that there is more then one Jeremiah Thoms in my family tree. The second Jeremiah that I have found may be my great great grandfather and he may be the one married to Charlotte Laing. I am having difficulty verifying my information though.

If you want more information on this branch of the Thoms family, you can contact me through my email address:

Thank you,
