About Thomas Marks

Census record []

Probably [William Marks, of Lewis/Harrison], [Thomas Marks] or [John Marks, of Kanawha], but there are no clear records (yet). May differ for different children.

Alternate parents: David and Catherine Marks.

Thomas had three wives over the years: (1) Sarah Queen, (2) Sally Jones (the sister of his sister-in-law), and (3) Mary Starr, and established a very large family in West Virginia. He lived to see over 86 descendents before he died prior to 4/4/1867 at the (estimated) age of 87 years [if his birth date was 1780]. Interestingly, Thomas and Mary reported their ages as 70 and 68 when they married in 1865.

In 1828, Thomas was found in Gilmer County, VA (WV).

Sometime after the 1810 census, Thomas and his family moved away from his brother and sisters in Harrison C., VA (WV) into what became Lewis Co., VA (WV) where they were enumerated in the 1820 census. About 1828, Thomas and Sally moved near the mouth of Long Lick Run on Cedar Creek in Gilmer Co., VA (WV).

In the 1860 census, Thomas reported his birthplace to be Frederick Co., MD.
