Thomas Wallwork

The company rosters shows his name as Walworth. Through the PEF, we see that James Blackham sent for Thomas and his son, William, who traveled with James' mother, Martha Blackham, and her family. When Thomas died on the trail, the Blackham family took William into their home and he died the following March.
