Linda,The following is info on my Thweatt line from AL and Leon Co. TX:
Levi Manning Thweatt, married Ann Colley, December 30, 1849 in Chambers County Alabama. The 1860 and 1870 census shows that Levi, born about 1820 in South Carolina, was living in Barbour County with his family.Levi’s children were Annie Eliza, Dr. John, Laura who married Dr. Wm. Kirksey, Dr. Oscar Levi, Fletcher Franklin, Lulu who married John Druant, Lillian May who married William Ryan and Walter.Levi’s family moved to Leon County, Texas, where his sons, O. L. and J. E. Thweatt are on the1878 tax list but no records have been found to confirm Levi’s residency.Ann Colley Thweatt’s epitaph in the Centerville Cemetery, Leon County, shows she was born November 4, 1828 and died February 15, 1878.
Fletcher Grigsby Thweatt married widow Francis A. Kinnebrew Rainey, November 14, 1872 in Tallapoosa Co.They lived in Barbour County in Springhill (now Comer) with his daughter Laura and her son James Maurice Rainey.Fletcher and Francis were blessed with a daughter, Maggie Fletcher Thweatt, born in Springhill March 14, 1874.In 1877 they mortgaged the “store house and lot at Spring Hill Depot known as the Thweatt Store” and the following year sold the Thweatt Store to B. B. Comer (later the Governor of Alabama).Fletcher and his family moved to Leon County, Texas where he is shown on the 1878 tax list.The 1880 census shows Fletcher’s family now included a two-year-old daughter, D. S. Thweatt, of whom nothing more is known.Fletcher’s land was sold at public auction in March of 1883 and no later Leon County records for Fletcher or his family have been found.Maggie married Joseph Rhyal Watkins, March 7, 1894, in Alexander City (see Tallapoosa County, Alabama Heritage Series).Francis returned from Texas before 1900 and lived with Maggie and Joe in Alexander City until her death sometimes after 1910.Nothing more is known of Fletcher.
I would like to exchange information with you if you have data for this Thweatt family.Bill Watkins, Shalimar, FL
