Excellent Christine   :) - at least we know which family he belonged to. Love the snowdrops - your garden ?

Thanks Sandra. Wish the snowdrops were in my garden , but they are in an old, sunken lane on one of our regular walks. We can't seem to grow them.  ;D

We never had any luck with those little snowdrop bulbs but bought some in the green and they just flourished after that which was probably lucky.  :)

Owen and Richard Thomas might have been somewhere else besides Rochester before 1907. I looked for Richard in the Rochester city directories working backward from his known address in 1915.
This is the earliest entry I am sure of:
1911
Richard Thomas, pictures and frames at 48 James, lives there also

These might be him, based on the occupation.
1907
? Richard Thomas, stonecutter at 54 Plymouth, boards 26 Elm
1909
? Richard Thomas, stonecutter, boards 14 Eckhardt Place

Come to think of it, I don't remember seeing a Richard Thomas, stonecutter, after 1911, but I'd have to go back through them to be sure. I think it would have got my attention since his father was a stone mason.

I didn't see Richard in 1904, 1905, or 1906. I didn't look any earlier than that.

In all those years, the only Owen Thomas in Rochester was an insurance salesman with his own company. I ruled him out.

P.S. he is not the Richard E Thomas in Rochester at the same time. For one thing, that man was married in 1910 (but also to a "Minnie"). And they are in the directories together many years.

Who do you mean - "he"   ???  Richard  or Owen  ??

You seem to know more than you told us in your original post.  Is there any other information ?
How do you know he died in New York ?
