Unfortunately, Thomas Lloyd appears to be a common name in Chester
Co........and is probably Welsh as I'm sure you knows. I find the name
appearing before Pa is Pa, and was Upland, pre 1683., and various ones well
after that date....but none has a wife or family, so no way to tell if any
of these Thomas' are who you seek....and, there are dozens of Thomas Lloyds
in area wills...I was hoping I could find parents for Thomas, but no
'smoking gun'. Why is it that you think these folks from Ohio originated
in Chester Co, PA? Where did you find marriage and birth dates? It's
always helpful to know 'why' and 'where' things come from, as they may be a
clue as to where to be looking. Some of the Lloyds in Chester were Quakers,
but why do you think yours might be? Did you find them in any Ohio meeting
I found a Thomas Lloyd who was dis for mou 10-14-1790 in the Kennet
meeting . This Thomas had earlier transferred from the Uwchlan meeting.
So, I looked at the HISTORY OF UWCHLAN TWP 1682-1782, and while there is a
David Lloyd (I believe, a judge), there's no mention of a Thomas. I found
other Thomas's, too, in other meeting records, but none the right time frame
to be your Thomas. As one of these was married in the Concord meeting, I
looked in the CONCORD TOWNSHIP book, but the only Lloyd mentioned is David,
who appeared to be an attorney, also.
I also found ;
Thomas Lloyd. By letter from Wales.....from the records of the Great Valley
Baptist Church...(there is no date on this entry, I'm afraid., but an
indication that not all were Quakers.
I went ahead and looked at Hinshaw's Quaker Encyclopedia which has
nothing from Chester, but does have at least some of the Ohio meeting
records....and, these don't have any entries for a Thomas Lloyd....or an Ann
Lloyd, either. Nor is there a listing for any MMs in Meigs County. So, I
have totally struck out today, I'm afraid.
Do you know when/where Thomas died? The OHS in Columbus has a a great
online site, and much of what they have on film is available through
inter-library loan, so be sure to take a look at their holdings, for a will,
and a newspaper obit. I know the latter are on film and may be loaned out.
"I am trying to find a Thomas Lloyd in the area. In 1820 they were in Meigs
County, Ohio. All I have is he married to Ann and had a son William born 28,
March 1816. William was my great grandfather. I think they might have been
