If you relate to this man, Thomas Price, and his family, I would love to hear from you. He would be a nephew, it appears to Fielding and Frederick Price. Where is this Thomas Price buried? Anyone know? I am interested also in what became of his dad as he was a brother to Frederick and Fielding, my great great great grandfather Linda T. Acrey Lonoke, Arkansas e-mail MissLata @aol.com.
