Thomas sailed to America in 1853 on the ship Ellen Maria. His obituary says he drove an ox team across the plains this same year. Further research is needed to identify the name of the pioneer company with which he traveled.
In 1856 he was living in the Box Elder Ward, and in 1866 he was living in the Brigham City Ward.
