George Herbert Thomas of Brant Rock, the son of Luther and Abigail (Sampson) Thomas, was successfully engaged in the varied occupations of farmer, general teamster and dealer in ice, wood, milk, hay and grain. As a descendent of John Thomas, an orphan lad who arrived on the ship "Hopewell" in 1635 and became a steward at "Careswell", the estate of Edward Winslow, George was a worthy representative of one of the oldest families of Marshfield, MA, his native town. (From "Biographical Review, Sketches of Leading Citizen of Plymouth County, MA." publ. 1897)
George attended the common schools until the age of 16, and remained with his parents until he was of age, when he started out for himself and settled at Brant Rock. He was well known in the village of Brant Rock and vicinity as a man of sterling integrity. In politics, he was a Republican.
On March 26, 1879, George married Ellen Maria Peterson, a native of Duxbury, MA and the daughter of Jabez and Phoebe (Shurtleff) Peterson of that place.
George and Ellen had three children: William (Willy) who died age 2 and is buried in the family plot at Cedar Grove; Edith, and Mary Abigail. Mary married Leon F. Stetson and both are also buried Cedar Grove. Edith married first Charles Durling and they had two sons; she married second Bert Rich of Duxbury, but they had no children.
