Thomas appears to have spent his entire life in Jay and Randolph counties. He was a farmer and had pictures taken of he and Mary Ann with their first grandchild about 1901 or 1902 by a photographer in Portland. Another picture taken at the same time includes all of his children. Each of the pictures were passed down through different branches of the family and only recently have the present owners of the two pictures learned of the existence of the second picture.
