Yes! I would certainly appreciate the information. Do you know if that book is still in print or where I might purchase a copy? I just purchased THE DIALS CHURCH COLLECTION compiled by Sarah Jane Armstrong at Gray Court,SC.. It is a well done book with a lot of Dial history and some wonderful old photos. My Thomason family and the Dial family were closely related with a lot of double first cousins to confuse those of us who would later try to sort them out.I am searching for the Thomason emigrant and hope to find them with the Dial family since they seemed to move with them (and live on adjoining lands) in the colonies. Thanks for your help.
