Thomas definitely came to Ohio from Kentucky as a child. Nancy may have as well, or may have been born in Ohio. In either case they met, married and starting raising their family in Montgomery County Ohio. Likely in 1831 when Daniel was 36 and Nancy was 32 they moved the family to Montgomery County, Indiana. George was born in Ohio in 1830 and Charles was born in Indiana in 1832. They stayed in Indiana for the rest of their lives.
