  5. [S67] Letter, - author to Scantlebury ONS, Thomas had two brothers who also emigrated to the U.S., but not when he did. George Henry Scantlebury came to New York (also aboard the Germanic, as did Thomas!), arriving 23 Sep 1878. Brother William came first, probably in 1875, but I have more confirming to do on this. Although George intended to go on to the gold fields of Australia, both he and brother William remained in California for the rest of their lives, just as Thomas remained in Ohio. There is no evidence that the two California brothers ever saw Thomas after arriving in this country. Thomas died in Loudonville, Ohio, 27 June 1853. George died 31 March 1902, and William died 25 Dec 1897, both in Murphys, California.
