Re: This THOMAS line is HIDING SOMEWHERE
Dear Ms. Atkinson:
Thank you so much for your message regarding a Lafayette Thomas residing in Moore County, NC.
I have a Lafayette Thomas born bef. 1836,probably in Henry County, Alabama, but possibly in Georgia, to Elija Augustus Thomas, b. abt. 1800 and Nancy Arnold.This Lafayette Thomas is my great-granduncle.While he and his sibling Marion stayed in Alabama after the War, his other siblings, William H. Thomas, Caroline Thomas, Katherine Thomas, Jane Thomas, Elija Washington Thomas, Jr. (who had been badly wounded in the War, serving in Co.E, 57th Alabama Volunteer Infantry Regiment.Others of these brothers may have served, also.
Can you tell me how I might get in touch with the Lafayette Thomas you mention?Any chance his ancestors came from Alabama or Georgia?
