    He was described as


    a very animated preacher, he had a rough-hewn and barnstorming style. In praying he raised his voice to a fearful pitch. [Floor] boards needed to be sound and resisting (he stamped his feet), and lamps & gas-brackets out of arms' way, when in full sail.

    He was unkempt, animated, enthusiastic, unrefined, loud, intensely religious and larger than life.

    His dress on the Sabbath varied little from when he was working on the farm.

    He wore knee-breeches, grey stockings and gurt three-hoyled lace shoes, no starched collar round his neck, but a thick muffler hung from his throat. He was rarely seen with a hat or cap and he

    Sarah – often known as Sally – was renowned for her porridge.

    Intending his comments as praise for Sarah's porridge, Thomas once said

    Sally's porridge were the thickest I ever saw, ye could cut and eyt it with a knife and fork. It were so thick, it were like potted meat when it flopped out o't' pan. The consistency was so thick and stiff that when retracting a lead spoon from it, the spoon would bend out of shape.

He left a girl aged 16 years, to be cozened by her mothering father out of his money; his own father deposed for felony; his own brother James G who was arraigned before a magistrate for his raiment, which he had bequeathed to him before his death, in the presence of two witnesses
    
    His thread of life now spun,
    His age near thirty-four years;
    And in his trade dropped down,
    And left this vale of tears
