(III)-Alexander Thomas (2) born 1823 Little Britain, Red River, died, April 23, 1869, son (II)- Richard Thomas Metis b-1800 and Eleanor.  Its highly possible that Alexander is the son of Peter Foy?  1835 census tends to support this assumption.  Family baptism of November 13, 1837 does not include this Alexander.

(*2)(III)-Charles Thomas Thomas born 1828 Little Britain, Red River, baptized, November 13, 1837, St. John Anglican Church Red River, died September 18, 1843 son (II)- Richard Thomas Metis b-1800 and Eleanor.  Its highly possible that Charles is the son of Peter Foy?  1835 census tends to support this assumption.

Victorine Thomas born February 25, 1837 claims Richard Thomas as her father but no other records verify this claim.  Could be his child by a different woman.  1838 census tends to support this claim?  Victorine is not included in the family baptism of November 13, 1837.  She is likely not the daughter of this Eleanor.

(*4)Alexander Thomas (3) born 1835 (ID # 4668) baptised November 27, 1837 St. John Anglican Church, Red River married 1851 Victoria Taylor.
