Calif. Families Gard Guard - Thomas Family Legacy Contact
We had several wealthy relatives:
Samuel Wilbore (Guard ancestor), a wealthy Boston merchant with his own ship in the 1600's, donated land for Boston Commons.
Benjamin Hathaway (Guard ancestor) a large landowner in Morristown NJ, donated land for the Presbyterian Church and Central Square in Morristown, NJ in 1740.

Henry Massengill and Mary Cobb (Thomas ancestors) were prominent plantation owners with their own statue in eastern Tennessee in the 1700's.

Our real legacy is from a poor Ohio coal miner, Jonathan Sikes, who failed at gold mining around Chico and moved to the Davis area, took up farming and got a land grant for a farm in Tremont, an area eastern Solano county just north of Davis.
