I have received from the National Archives the Civil War pension application
of John W. Thomas, who was a resident of Hancock, Delaware County, NY at the
time of the application and who is buried in the Ball's Eddy, Wayne County,
PA cemetery. His wife was Martha Cole.
Unfortunately, as I suspected, he is not the John Thomas I was looking for.
I would be glad to send the papers to anyone researching this family. If I
don't have any takers, I'll put them in the Thomas file at the Wayne County
