    Is anyone good at Genealogy? Heirloom Returned!

    I recently found a 1827 Large Cent in Eldon, MO with a name stamped into it E.B. Thomas, MCH.22 . I believe I have found the individual who once cherished this coin and I have been trying to track down his descendants so I can return it to them. If you have any resources and are up for a research challenge feel free to help me out. This is what I know so far.

    Elihu B. Thomas born in NY March 22, 1827 and he died in St. Louis April 25, 1910. He was married to Imogene Garrettson who died April 11, 1917.

    Their children were Paul Thomas, Imogine C Thomas, Augustus Thomas, Alice A. Thomas, Irwin Thomas, and Emily Thomas.

    Any help to track down a living relative would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Don

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    That was looked at but once I found that MCH was the old way to abbreviate March and also found an E.B. Thomas that was born on March 22, 1827 that lived in Missouri and I was able to place him near where I had found the coin we pretty much stopped looking at the 22nd Michigan Regiment theory.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    The First and last name are the same but it doesn't show a middle name or initial and doesn't show any time frame.

    Thanks!

    Good luck.
    I'd like to see this end with a pic of you and one of the kin exchanging this coin.

    Well if you are good at tracking down Descendants then feel free to join in. I keep running into road blocks with the family trees because they don't list personal information about living descendants. I have emailed a couple different owners of family trees but have not heard any thing back yet.
