Thomas was born in the family homestead at Trummery and came to the USA with his parents and siblings in 1801. He was brought up in Columbiana helping his father and brother on the farm. During the long winter months he studied to be a physician. He started his first practice as a country physician in Richmond, Indiana in 1820 shortly after marrying Anne Lynch Williams, a Friend. After falling ill he moved back to Columbiana but then settled in St.Clarisville, Belmont County, Ohio until 1841 when he moved to practice in Cincinnati (East Liverpool?).
