*my direct-line ancestors. The (-5G), etc., indicates the number of generations before Erven Thoma.
Other siblings, born before Andreas, consist of Josef Thoma (-5G) (b. 4 Jan. 1752), Maria Thoma (-5G) (b. 8 Jul. 1754), Anna Thoma (#1) (-5G) (b. 21 Feb. 1756), Magdalena Thoma (-5G) (b. 29 Apr. 1758), and another Anna Thoma (#2) (-5G) (b. 11 Apr. 1760). Probably the first Anna died in infancy.
Andreas was a farmer, innkeeper (Gastwirt), and "Vogt" in Altenschwand, Waldshut, Baden "Vogt" is a property administrator (or supervisor) for a nobleman.
An Andreas Thoma was the proprietor of the "Hirschen" Landgasthof (Inn/guesthouse) in Altenschwand. It could have been this one because probably his son Andreas and definitely his grandson Fridolin were the proprietors at a later time.
Information on this Andreas is found in the books, Familiengeschichte der Gemeinde Rickenbach, Vol. 1 #2173 and #2184
