Thomas D. Lansden located on a place west of Bethany, known as the Evans' farm. He was a native of North Carolina, and moved to Tennessee when he was quite a young man, where he married Peggie McClin. In the year 1830, he moved with his family to what is now Moultrie county, where he resided until his death, which occurred in 1838. He was a blacksmith by trade, and built the first blacksmith shop in that part of the country. He was one of the patriots of 1812, and was with Jackson behind the cotton bal es at New Orleans.
