In the 1850 DeSoto Parish census, p.189, Household 407 is Thos. F. Tharp, age 27, Planter, b. MS. Adelade, age 25, b. AL and Walter b. LA. There is some confusion about Walter's age - there is an "m" over a 9 as though the enumerator started to record his age as 9, but realized it was 9 months. Next door is G. A. Tharp, age 58, probably Thomas's father.
