      pp. 16-17:

      "Following is a transcribed copy of pages written in his diary by John M. Thomas. It is believed by his family to have been written about 1864. . . .

      'Phineas Thomas was born in Pennsylvania about the year 1765.
      Goliah Thomas came from Wales to Pennsylvania, 1770? 1782?'"

      p. 19:

      "And now, who was Goliah Thomas? A close look reveals that the item on the diary page facing the history and the 'Goliah' written above the beginning of the history were added by a different hand. Who added the information isn't known. The name 'Goliah' was not carried down in this family and yet the mere entry of the name ensures that he was family. . . . Was 'Goliah' brother to [Phineas]? We have found no other trace of this early 'Phineas' or 'Goliah' Thomas. . . ."
