Notes from Tom Hooker: "In 1997 the Enoch Thomas Cemetery was identified by local residents as the Old Indian Cemetery. To reach the cemetery, go northeast out of Marseilles on State Route 67, turning left on Township Road 71. Park at the first farm house on the right before the road drops down a hill to Tymochtee Creek. Cross the road and walk southwest through a field, following the woods line on the right side of the field for about 800 feet until a small cemetery is reached on the banks of Tymotchee Creek. A wire fence surrounds less than a dozen markers in an area overgrown with weeds and brush"

Note from Dick Lodge, email: RELODGE@aol.com: Enoch (Thomas) was born in Hardy County, West Virginia; and we have been there and copied all the records we could find on his family, wills and deeds and marriages. The tombstone of Sarah Thomas, wife of Enoch Thomas, is not in the THOMAS cemetery.  Sarah is buried in YORK STREET cemetery on route 37 north of Marseilles.  She is buried with members of her family.  She was Enoch's second wife, following the death of Jane Farmer Thomas.  Jane actually was married to David Thomas and when he died, she married Enoch and bore him children.  Sarah also was the mother of two children with Enoch, but most of Enoch's children and descendants are buried in CHANDLER cemetery. I cannot connect tie above David to Enoch, other than the fact he also came from Hardy county, he was listed on his deed as from there. (note from Kris: But SARAH has a tombstone here at Thomas!!)
Note from Steve Wilde [swilde@seidata.com]: Enoch [Thomas] is buried in a private cemetery on the bank of the Tymochtee Creek, just south of Marseilles, Ohio across from where the old homestead was located
