I have run into some info on Alvin Oliver Thomas on Ancestry.com under ODJackson Tree. He has Alvin Oliver Thomas as the same person...just like I thought. Alvin's father as William Merideth Thomas; his grandfather as Samuel Thomas; Great Grandfather as Evan Irwin Thomas. William Merideth Thomas was the brother to Elizabeth A. Thomas Turnipseed....mother of Anna and Savannah Turnipseed....Alvin Thomas' two wives before Sarah Elizabeth Ritch Thomas! Email me with any comments and info from this find!
