HIMES OR HEIMS


Little is known of this family at this time. We believe Margaret's parents were John Himes and Martha Dolbow. They are buried in the Lutheran cemetery in Breezewood, PA. There is a Samuel Himes also buried there. He may have been her brother as his date of birth is close to hers.

Notes for ISAAC M. THOMAS:

From "The History of East Providence Township, PA" ----Isaac Thomas was of German descent. He came to Fulton County with his father, Peter Thomas, when five years of age. In 1849, Isaac came to Ray's Hill, where he followed various kinds of work for two years then entered the tannery of John Nycum, in which he worked 14 years. In 1861, he enlisted and served until the close of the war. Upon returning from the army, he was foreman of the J. B. Hoyt & Co., Tannery at Ray's Hill. A Map from the 1877 Atlas showing this areea and Ray's hill, suggesteds the tannery was a short way down the dirt road beside and behind the Lutheran Church and Cemetery in Breezewood, PA. Isaac was listed as the Superintendent of the Tannery. Mr Thomas married Margaret Himes. They had 8 children."
