Thomas married Mable Blanche Cutler, Tuesday, June 9, 1908, Ogden, Weber Co., Utah. "They were so happy over the event of their marriage that they sought a photograph gallery, where they sat for their pictures."
(Salt Lake Herald, June 11, 1908, Page 12, Col. 4)

Mable was the daughter of Governor John Christopher Cutler and Sarah Elizabeth Taylor. Governor Cutler made Mable get a divorce. Thomas never remarried.

"Thomas and Mable eloped to Ogden where they wed in June 1908. Governor, John C. Cutler, was extremely upset. The married couple only spent 2 days together before Mable was taken back by the governor. I have a news clipping that they divorced in 1910, the marriage was not "annulled". This appeared in the papers quite a bit at the time and the governor lost his bid for re-nomination by his party, later in 1908, serving just 1 term.
