      According to Lucy Widdison Holms, Thomas went to Lanarkshire to work for Robert Russell to learn to be a file cutter. There he met Robert's sister Jannett whom he later married. Their family emigrated in 1853 on the ship Falcon, arriving in New Orleans on May 18, 1853. They traveled on to Salt Lake City.
