Some of you expert family historians MUST have some thoughts on WHY the first Thurmonds came to America. Where did they land in Maryland.....and then fan out into Virginia?And then on into the Carolinas and Georgia-Tenn.-Ky - etc? What was going on in the world to make them move?
The wealth and success they achieved certainly affirmed their decision to pick up and move to a distant land.
I'm working on the Dr. Harrison R. Thurmond family in Cedartown, Georgia. I'd welcome any information you have on these folks.Phyllis
