On 12 Dec 1834, Tom married Mary Hartley. The Hartleys were a Quaker family, members of the Stillwater Monthly Meeting, and Mary was dismissed for marrying out of the faith.  They had three children together. Mary died about 1839, possibly while giving birth to their daughter Lydia.

On 14 Nov 1839, in neighboring Guernsey Co., OH, Tom married Sarah DONALDSON. They had two children together. About 1845, Tom and Sarah moved west to Bureau Co., IL, settling in the Wyanet area. Tom died shortly thereafter. He was reportedly buried in a pioneer cemetery near Wyanet, the exact location of which is unknown. In Jun 1846, Sarah married William ELLIOTT.
