Thrifts in Oconee Co. I am related to Johns son Allen Henry two times.It has been very hard to get any information from the people that live in Longcreek.Most of my information came from census reports. In that area the Thrifts intermarried into the Phillipps family the Ramey family, Cox family, the Smith family, and the Lee family.I hope I have answered some of your questions.
