  1. Do you have information on Thomas Janes b. 1751/52 named above. I will begin looking for information about him here in Richmond soon. Any information you may have, I would be very interested to know about. Thank you. Deryl Carswell Weaver Chester Virginia

    • Deryl,
      Sorry, but I’ve only traced the line primarily in descent from the Seibert (Seybert) family toward the present. I have not followed the lines of other children, siblings, etc. Best wishes on your research. Larry
