Gayleen, I have been working on this for a long time and do have several contacts with distant cousins who have helped me along in my quest for more information. I found Thomas and Mary listed in the Jones County, Miss. Census for 1850 at . I have not gotten any farther back then the fact that both Thomas and Mary were from South Carolina. Do you know where in South Carolina they came from? I would love to share any information that I have with you.
