Query: Thomas

I am looking for any information on the Thomas Family of Wood County. My great grandmother was Maybelle Young and she was married to J. W. Thomas. J. W. ‘s father was William Edward Thomas and he was married to Louisa Dyess. I have a lot on the Dyess side but very little on the Thomas side. William Edward Thomas died in Wood County on November 14, 1917. His father was Joseph Thomas who was born in Tennessee, I think.
