Parents of Isaac Thomas ?? Note: Ann Rutherford and Jean Shanelec, two of the principal researchers for our Thomas line, have made several trips to Virginia and Tennessee, but have not been able to find the names Isaac's parents.

Following is an example the misinformation perpetuated by the Internet

Hi everyone,
I am a descedent of the THOMAS family in question and have original family trees back to 1673 that I working from. John THOMAS and Lucretia HART's son Isaac was born Nov. 13, 1757 in Warminster, Bucks Co., PA. Lucretia was born in 1720, married 1st (Wiliam GILBERT) in 1741, married 2nd (John THOMAS) in 1752 (the 1751 date often seen on the internet is also incorrect) and died in 1760. Lucretia was not quite 32 when she and John married, so they only had only 4 children: John (b. 1753), Elizabeth (b. 1755), Isaac (b. 1757) and Eleanor (b. 1759). This whole family was born, lived and died in PA. The Isaac THOMAS(s) I keep seeing born in 1818 and 1835 and born/ living in VA are NOT the son of John & Lucretia. I have lots of PA & MD THOMAS line info if anyone wants it. Hope this helps!!

For a long time I have had John Thomas and Lucretia Hart as his parents, but I think that may be wrong as he was born in 1735 and they never married until 1751. Any help here????

Author: My guess is there are two Isaacs, a Sr. and Jr. The Isaac referred to above would have been 64 yrs. old when his son John was born.
