looking for Thomas' and McClure's

Post by mfield » Mon Mar 03, 2014 1:41 am

Looking for any information on the following family members:

George Washington Thomas b Texas [unk dob/dod] [unk where born]
Nancy McClure [abt 1869, Van Buren County, Arkansas]
(mother Lucinda Holmes [abt 1848 in Arkansas] m Joseph Frank McClure [dob abt
1848 in Missouri]
(sister Margaret McClure, born abt 1876 in Arkansas
(sister Josephine McClure [abt 1885 in Texas] m Henry Kennelly [abt 1877 in
Arkansas], with son Ivan m. Bulah B.

CHILDREN of George and Nancy Thomas:
* Joe Jack Thomas b 1888 or 1889 Marietta, Oklahoma d 1945 Mesa, Arizona
* Alvie Thomas b 1898 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma d 1945 Fresno, California
* Shide Thomas (unk if correct name and/or spelling) died about age 17, suicide
[unk dob/dod or where, possibly in Oklahoma]

***I am looking for any/all information on George and Nancy. I have a copy of a
marriage certificate for a GW Thomas and NC McClure in Fannin, Tx in 1888. [unk
if this is them]. I cannot find anything on George and the last I can find on
Nancy is in 1880 in Hill, Texas at age 11.

The birth locations for Joe and Alvie may not be correct. They both had delayed
birth certificates. Joe's was filled out by my grandmother with info that Joe
gave her. Joe also had a problem with telling the truth or he honestly just
didnt know. He could not read or write. Also, Joe spent many years in and out of
prisons in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arizona. I have gotten some prison records but
others are lost in the state systems. On the Oklahoma ones, Joe lists that he
left home at age 12 [which would have been 1900] (other ones he says age 15) ,
on all he lists that his parents are deceased but no parents names listed.

My grandmother said that Joe had scars on his back from being beaten by his father.

*** In some of my searches , I see that some of the McClure and Thomas' ended
up in the Tulare, California area ***
****I have also been contacted by some that think George married Etter Thomas, I
do not think this is the same line, I have done some research on this possible
connection and the information does not add up.****
