Thomas IAMS
Ms. __?__
Sarah Jane RASEY
WARNING:  There are several Thomas IAMS born in Pennsylvania about the same time and place who are being mixed up.  They are undoubtedly related, as cousins, but the similarities between them have resulted in the mixups.  In addition to our subject, these include:
1.  the Thomas IAMS (1821/2- ) who married Delilah HUFFMAN, 
2.  the Thomas Palmer IAMS (1824-1902) who married Sarah JOHNSON, 
3.  the Thomas IAMS (c1825-1906) who married Phoebe PENN, and
4.  the Thomas D. IAMS (1833-1910) who married Lydia ROGERS.
Husband:  Thomas IAMS / IIAMS / IMES
Birth:  Jan 1830, PA
Death apparently:  1900-1910, presumably in Hale Twp., Hardin Co., OH
Occupation:  farmer
Wife-1:  Ms. __?__

Please Note:  I have no proof Thomas had a prior wife, but one would suspect so based on the age difference between Thomas and Sarah.  If you know more about this Thomas, please share.

Birth:  27 Jul 1843 / 1845, Pitt Twp., Crawford [now Wyandot] Co., OH
