Surnames: Thomas
Have had contact with more branches of Evan Sr. Of Hilltown, PA descendants. This Evan should not be confuse with the Evan in Loudoun. However, I wanted to let people who were following these posting know to look for David Randolph Thomas on Canadian boards, Texas and California. It provides more fact the Evan Sr family migrated. It could helpful with DNA plus it allows Loudoun settlers to rule out the Evan who was the first settler in Hilltown. it helps make the case that the Evan in Loudoun and the one in Hilltown aren't the same.

There isn't any info about Loudoun County except that there is no sign Evan who died in Hilltown was in won't post here.
There were many Thomas families here so it is confusing. I include this post here just so those not connected to that Evan can eliminate him.

There is good info about the first Evan Thomas in Hilltown, PA. -Evan sr including on an ancestry tree by that name as well. Includes pictures. This branch has the same tradition as others , the family immigrated to PA from Wales c1720. Evan Sr and his sons, Evan and Richard died there. As did daughter Diana Thomas Mathews. E

Evan's jr's wiidow Margaret Mathews immigrated in 1772 to Fauquier county with her brother EDWARD and at least three of her sons. Her son Benjamin stayed in Fauquier. Travis the youngest son went to Wayne, KY.

Evan's Sr. son Joseph went to VA, Loudoun in 1765 along with some of his son. Tat is the only part of the family to go to Loudoun.

Some of Richard's sons and grandsons were loyalists who fled to New Brunswick during. Rev. War.

If you are interested in any of this family in Loudoun look for info about Rev.Joseph Thomas He was the only one who went to Loudoun along with a few of.his children. However, no sons remained there for longer than a generation. I believe family tradition and migration patterns preclude any Thomas family beyond Joseph having settled there in 1700s .Thought it might help others when using DNA.

I am not aware of what became the sons of Evan who died in loudoun in 1757. They appeared to leave Loudoun within a few years their fathers death.
