I am searching for more information on John Thomas and wife Margaret Stahm of Jo Daviess County.
According to my information, John Thomas and Margaret Stahm lived in Jo Daviess County and had at least one daughter, Elizabeth Nicole Thomas.
Elizabeth N. Thomas married Loren Anderson Brooks 31 May 1851 in East Forks, Jo Daviess County, IL. They later moved to St. Croix County, Wisconsin and settled 100 acres of land that Loren bought around 1855.
After serving in the Wisconsin 13th Regiment during the Civil War, Loren recieved land under the Homestead Act and moved to Minnesota. The Brooks family settled in the town of Renville in Renville County, MN. Their son, Jesse Thomas Brooks, is my 2nd great grandfather.
Any information on any of the above persons would be greatly appreciated. I currently know nothing of the Thomas and Stahm families but have a lot of information on the Brooks family that goes back to 1750 in Connecticut.
I am willing to share any information I have with you if you are interested. Please contact me through my e-mail address.
