Who is Mariah Huber? What family?
By the way, the German pronounation for Marie/Mary is Mariah, so
keep that in mind for baptismal names.

**From: Gary Kriss re: above entry - First of all, please note:
Thomas Adams b. 1-14-1823, d. 11-06-1823, did not exist. See
correction in Vol 2 of Ledoux, page 75: 2143 ADAMS, Thomas (#3531,
Vol. I) read d. 1873. I have no idea how he got mixed into the
Loretto records, but I have always been suspicious of him. The two
deaths on Nov 6, decades apart was too much of a coincidence. Also,
the parents of both Thomases are always identified as Thomas and
Rachel. They could not have had two sons named Thomas born on the
same day, one of whom died and one of whom lived. The birthdate on
the real Thomas Jr's headstone is wrong (1822) but even if it were
correct why would the same parents name another son Thomas a year
later? It doesn't add up--and Ledoux solves the problem with this
correction. So Thomas Adams, b. 1823, should be removed from the St
Michael's index. He isn't there.

Thomas is alive and well and living with his parents in 1850. ~dnj
