The Thomas Brothers Story

Tommy and Billy Thomas grew up in East Chicago. Their father, Tommy Tomac (later changed to Tommy Thomas 1rst upon the arriving at Ellis Island) was an immigrant from the Croatian province of Yugoslavia.  Their mother, Josephine Benco, was purchased out of a catalog as a mail-order bride.

The elder Tom Thomas owned a bar at 502 w. 151st East Chicago named the Thomas Lounge.   The lounge was well known for the serving signature Lake Michigan Perch.  The building of the Thomas Lounge was a three story structure.  The first floor comprised of the Thomas Lounge.  The second floor was a boarding house where they rented rooms.  The third floor is where the Thomas Family lived.

Growing up in East Chicago would form the foundation for what would become an incredible journey of two brothers.  This site is dedicated to telling that story...
