Fifth Generation


46. Frances Ann THOMAS43,44 was born in August 1832 in Virginia.65

Fannie and Virginia said to have been educated in the Danville schools, but I don't see how this is possible if Rebecca was born in Caswell Co NC in 1838 as the 1850 Census indicates. [It's plausible they could have boarded with relatives in Danville during the school year.]

Living with Nat. W. and his family in 1850 were also Jno S. Richmond age 29, also born in North Carolina. No doubt a brother. Both were Merchants. Mrs. K. McClendon, age 23, born in KY, also lived with the family. She was listed as "Clerk". Could she be a widowed sister?
