George was born July 7, 1859 in Conemaugh, Somerset, Pennsylvania where he remained the rest of his life. He and Lydia had a total of 7 children - Elizabeth Ann Thomas, Jacob K. Thomas, Daniel Lawrence Thomas, Millie Mae Thomas, Amanda Thomas, Miller Thomas and Nannie Thomas.
George's father's name was Emanuel Thomas and his mother was Hannah Thomas, both of them born and died in Pennsylvania.
The 1880 census shows George, age 20, living at home and employed as a "laborer" "odd jobs". His family was living next door to the Livingstons.
The next census I find is 1910. George was now married to Lydia Livingston with their only children at the time being "Lizzie" and "Jacob". Her family is on the property next to them. It appears she is not far from home and I'm sure had the help of her family with the children. It again list's George's work as a "Laborer" doing "odd jobs". They don't realize yet that they would have five more children.
George died on September 20, 1928 at the age of 69. He left behind Lydia and their children. Lydia went on to live until 1954 to the age of 73.
His final resting place is in Sala-Livingston Farm Cemetery, Somerset County, Pennsylvania, USA.
