  • Name John Shaw Thomas 
    • Edward Thomas and Elizabeth Shaw used a surname as a middle name for some of their children. John Shaw Thomas and Elizabeth Goff followed the practice to a greater degree, but failed to use "Goff" as a middle name for any child. Perhaps "Goff" was the surname from an earlier marriage.
