Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Thomas may have been born between 1770 and 1775 in Maryland and died in Kirkwood Township, Belmont County, OH. However, one reference mentions a county historical book, (no title given, but for Belmont County?) in which Thomas and his brother William came from England and settled in SE Ohio. William married Rachel Fairleigh.

A Thomas Hinton married Lilly Griffith on 4 Jan 1795 in Anne Arundel County, MD. Same Thomas? Different?

Thomas and Sarah may have been married in 1803 or 1804 (in NY or OH?), and may have had five children, all born in Belmont County, OH. These were Thomas J., Jr. (b. 2 Oct 1805), Eliza (b. 7 May 1807), Elizabeth (b. 5 Apr 1808), William Bryant (b. 8 Mar 1810), and Sarah.

Thomas may have had a brother William, born 1764 in MD, died 15 Aug 1820 in Belmont County, OH.
