Thomas/Seitz Family A Virtual Cemetery created by: kricker61
Description: My wife was born in the small town of Gomer in Allen County, Ohio. After getting started on tracing my family ancestors, I began to research her ancestors as well. Known deceased descendants of William S. Thomas and Johannes Seitz- the first family members on her mother's side to immigrate to America- are included in this "Virtual Cemetery". I would be glad to update based on information and/or add other descendants you wish to provide. William S Thomas was born October 6, 1857 in Wales, the son of John D Thomas and Mary Mills. He married Sarah Pugh in Pembrokeshire, Wales on February 7, 1872. US Census records indicates William immigrated to America circa 1877-1879, and Sarah joined him two years later. They settled in Sugar Creek Township in Allen County Ohio. Johannes Seitz was born Jan. 30, 1740 in Baden-Württemberg, Germany the son of Hans Andreas Seitz. Johannes married Anna Catharina Diehl (Ripp/Rub/Rueb) on May 8, 1764, and shortly after their wedding they set sail for America on the Ship Richmond and landed in Philadelphia on October 20, 1764. They settled in York County, PA.
