Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 21, 1805
Franklin County
Georgia, USA
Death: May 6, 1891
Fannin County
Georgia, USA

Eliza Magrude Thomas is the daughter of William Thomas (abt 1778-about 1858) and Eleanor Downing (1777-after 1860). She married Laten Legg (1794-1861) on April 26, 1826 in Wayne County, Kentucky. She and her family, together with her parents, moved from Kentucky to Georgia and were pioneer settlers to north Georgia by about 1832.
Six of their sons served in the Confederate Army. They had 8 sons and 4 daughters.
Eliza Magrude Thomas Legg is my great, great, great grandmother. I participated in the project to purchase a new marker for her and her husbands graves and organized a dedication service, when it was discovered that one of their original tombstones had been broken.
