Thomas Lundy of Reading, Pennsylvania

I’ve been trying to find information about Thomas Lundy and his daughter, Laura Lundy for some time. Here’s all the information that I have – please contact me if you have any more info! Thomas Lundy was born in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1807. He married Mary Ann Johnson and moved to Kentucky, working as a Tailor there. He dropped dead on the road between Pittsburgh and Monangehelia. Thomas was thought to be of Scotch descent but Uncle Sink (see below) claimed that he came from Ireland. Thomas ran a store at Maysville, Kentucky, and some think he also had one in Georgetown, Ky. Mary Ann Lundy was born in 1809 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her mother was Nancy Thomas of Pennsylvania, but I don’t have any more information about her. Mary Ann died on April 8th in either 1880 or 1881 and was eventually buried in Carrollton, Missouri. The 1850 census for Jessamine, Kentucky shows Thomas and Mary Ann living with 7 children. It shows that Thomas and George Lundy were both Tailors.
