Here is a link to a pdf with 15 of these documents that I found linked to from an online article.

(I hope these links come through all right!)

Arthur Thome was the brother of my husband's GGGGG grandmother Eleanor Thom Robb. His parents were James Thom/Thome who died in Buffalo Township, Northumberland County (now Union County), Pennsylvania about 1790 and James's wife Elizabeth. Here is a link to an Orphan's Court document showing James Thom's heirs:

Arthur was noted as older than 14 but younger than 21 in another Orphan's Court entry on 1 May 1795. He moved to Augusta KY by 1810, when he married Mary Armstrong there. Arthur's sister Anna and her husband John Boude also moved to Augusta KY and they are both buried there. His older brother Robert Thom and sister Eleanor Thom Robb moved to Lexington KY. Robert died there in 1798 and Eleanor died there in 1858.

Arthur Thome's gravestone says he was born 4 Mar 1776. I believe he was born in Lancaster County PA but it might have been Northumberland County (now Union County) PA. He moved to Clark County, Missouri in his old age and died there 6 Jul 1855.

I hope this helps you!
