Thomas Emmett Mothershead & Jane Wiley

This is just an online version of a typical genealogical form called a Family Group Sheet. Please bear in mind, that all information, though I have verified as much as possible with my own research, is always susceptible to errors. I will cite sources for my information where possible. The information below is a compilation of Thomas's probate record, census records and records of Mothershead cousin Myrtle Gunderson.

If you're a long-lost cousin, old family friend, would like to share information, photos, or just swap tall tales, we'd love to hear from you. Please be sure to reference genealogy in your subject line. I automatically delete email from screen names I don't know without ever opening it since I get horrendous amounts of junk mail!
