Thomas Stoughton lived in Muddy Creek Township of Butler County, Pennsylvania, according to his will and he was born 24 Feb. 1817. However, he must have lived in Lawrence County, at some time since he is enumerated in the 1850 census for that county, as footnoted below. His will was dated 13 September 1852 and filed on 11 October 1852, in Butler County. He was the Brother of Jacob R. Stoughton, who was named, as such, in the will. The designated Guardian of his children was another Brother, James Stoughton, also named in the will; however, it was his brother Jacob who eventually cared for at least three of his children.

At first, after his death, we had no idea what happened to his wife or where she ended up and we also thought that since Thomas's will mentioned an interest in the estate of Luke Stoughton that he was possibly a son of Luke, but now, (Oct. 2012) this research from a contributor, that shows she most likely has discovered the whereabouts of Mary Jane, after the death of Thomas – She feels ths Mary Jane was the M.J. Stoughton, found on the 1860 census, living in Susquehanna, Dauphin county, PA and a resident in the Hospital there.

He was a Farmer and Laborer. He died on 14 Sept 1852, of "Phthis Pulmonalis" (From the death and burial certificate)and he and his father, Andrew and his Brother Jacob and their families are buried in the Harlansburg, PA Unity Baptist Cemetery.
