GREENWOOD CEMETERY-COLUMBIA TENNESSEE
THOMAS, Davey, d. 3 Feb 1859. 60 years. "Davey Thomas, husband of Dinah Thomas died Feb 3, 1859. Age 60 years". Judging from the color of this stone I would say it has been uncovered from the ground in recent years. There is a listing for a David Thomas by Fred Hawkins with the same dating. Possible that the main stone is somewhere else with name David and this is a foot stone. It is now propped against the Codelia Polk Memorial. Previous researchers that I am aware of do not mention it but judging from who their burial neighbors were and the location in the cemetery that Davey and Dinah were a black couple. Anyone that is knowledgeable on this may write me and I will publish your thoughts here. Photo and information by Wayne Austin 7/20/2003.
