  • Notes 
    • From History of Cambria County, Pennsylvania:

      JOHN PHILIP THOMAS. In Bavaria, Germany, where he was
      born, John Philip Thomas was by occupation a stone mason, and after
      coming to this country he became an industrious, practical and successful
      farmer. More than that, he was the founder and head of a substantial
      family of nine sons and daughters, and among them are some of the suc-
      cessful business men of southern Pennsylvania.

      John Philip Thomas was a native of Bavaria and came to America
      about the year 1830, accompanied by his wife and two sons, Nicholas and
      George Thomas. He was made a citizen of Pennsylvania, January 12,
      1839, and his naturalization papers are a treasured relic in possession of
      one of his grandsons. Having settled at Allegheny City he worked for
      a time as a stone mason, and after about five or six years moved to a farm
      east of Greensburg and still later to another farm, which he purchased,
      near Beatty Station in Westmoreland county, where he lived throughout
      the remaining period of his life.

      His wife was Elizabeth Memor, also a native of Bavaria, who died
      August 6, 1887, at the age of eighty-four years. Mr. Thomas died October
      6, 1879, at the age of eighty-two years. Children of John Philip Thomas
      and Elizabeth Memor, his wife, were: 1. Nicholas, married Hannah Ruff-
      ner, and lived on the old home farm until his death; 2. George, a grocer
      at Johnstown from 1861 until his death, July 14, 1902, married Jane
      Massena, who survives him and now lives in Johnstown; 3. John, of
      Johnstown, head of the house of John Thomas & Sons; 4. Michael, of
      Johnstown, unmarried; 5. Elizabeth, died at the age of eighteen years;
      6. Joseph G., city weighmaster of Johnstown; 7. Christina, now living
      at St. Mary's Convent, Pennsylvania, unmarried; 8. Barbara, married
      William Geiger, and lives at Latrobe, Pennsylvania; 9. Andrew, married
      Teresa Markel, and lives near Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
