A transcription of Highbanks Cemetery done by the Haldimand Co. branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society states that Thomas is buried in Highbanks. This is based on the death registration (which, as shown above, does not directly state that he was buried in Highbanks) and also a death notice, an actual copy of which is not presented. This is probably correct.

Thomas' background is unknown for a certainty. He may have been married twice prior to his marriage to Elizabeth Ann.
