From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Thomas
    twin, one of the twelve (Matt. 10:3; Mark 3:18, etc.). He was
    also called Didymus (John 11:16; 20:24), which is the Greek
    equivalent of the Hebrew name. All we know regarding him is
    recorded in the fourth Gospel (John 11:15, 16; 14:4, 5; 20:24,
    25, 26-29). From the circumstance that in the lists of the
    apostles he is always mentioned along with Matthew, who was the
    son of Alphaeus (Mark 3:18), and that these two are always
    followed by James, who was also the son of Alphaeus, it has been
    supposed that these three, Matthew, Thomas, and James, were
    brothers.
