About Thomas Read 1 tailor of Chelmsford

There seems to be no actual evidence as to his parents and origins. He was a freeman, April 1, 1679, and a soldier in King Philip's War, 1676. He worked as a tailor. In fact he would have had to have been born before Obediah was married.

  1. TAG 28:149 shows all the children of Obediah Reade and Thomas is not one of them.
