Surname Saturday - Thomas

Today's surname is Thomas, the name of one of my gg grandmothers. (I've included Ahnentafel numbers to make the relationships clearer.)

5. Verda Waller Hankins (my paternal grandmother)
11. Samantha Angeline Petty

23. Margaret E. Thomas
Born abt. 1836 in Georgia
Married John R. Petty 20 Sep 1857 in Whitfield County, Georgia
Died 28 Jul 1876 in Hopkins County, Kentucky

46. Jesse Thomas
Born abt. 1802 in South Carolina
Married Rebecca (maiden name unknown) bef. 1828
Probably Died bet. 1860-1870 in Georgia

Obviously, there is much work to be done on this line. Jesse Thomas was living in Murray County, Georgia in 1840 and 1860 and in neighboring Lumpkin County in 1850. Nothing else is known about him.
