From History of Lycoming County by Meginness (1892): "Thomas G Downing, deceased, was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, was a tanner by trade, and came to Lycoming County about the year 1835, in company with Enos Holley. He engaged in the tanning business at Lairdsville, this county, remained there a few years, and then purchased a farm in Loyalsock Township, where he remained for some time. He was married to Mary Wheland (sp., is probably Whelen), who died August 11, 1841, and was the mother of four children, two of whom died in infancy, and two grew to maturity; George, and Dennis. As his second wife Mr. Downing married Julia A. Bastian and to this union were born seven children: one deceased in infancy; Mary J.; John; William, deceased; Margaret E.; Charles, and Henry. The second Mrs. Downing died July 11, 1862, and he was again married, to Mary Morris (sp. probably Norris)who survives and is the mother of one child, William. In 1850 Mr. Downing went to Venango County, Pennsylvania, remained fifteen years, and returned to Muncy, where he died, November 14, 1890."
