About Thomas B Bristow
His name was Tom. He lived in Clinton, Ky., Clinton County. About 5 miles from where Granpap lived. I have been at his house and seen his family tho I was only about 6 years old at that time. They might have had more that 3 children but that is all that I can remember. Two brothers and one sister. Uncle Tom died in the year 1840. The date of death cannot be given here nor the date or birth. The youngest son were named Tom. He died at home and I think it was before his father died. The oldest son was named Vess. In about the year 1858 he went to Carrol County, Missouri, to where his Uncle Levin Bristow lived and while there he died. He was a grown man, but single. His brother Tom that we mentioned above died when he was about 15.
As to the daughter I remember seeing her. She was about grown at that time. This is a far as we can trace Uncle Tom's family. - Written by James Clawson Bristow 1908
