Thomas, one of the enterprising men of Idaho who has continually advanced in the affairs of life, was born in Hanley, Staffordshire, England, May 31, 1870, and is of Welsh ancestry. His father, James Thomas, was married in Wales to Elizabeth Richardson, and afterward removed to England, whence they came to the United States in 1873, bringing with them their daughter and son.
