Birth: 1778
Maryland, USA
Death: 1858
Fannin County
Georgia, USA

William Thomas is the son of Philip Thomas (1750-1815) and Elizabeth Covington Wailes (1754-1808). He was born about 1778 in Maryland (probably Charles County) and died before 7 June 1858 in Fannin County, Georgia when Letters of Administration were granted by the Court to his son-in-law, Laten Legg. William married Eleanor Downing (1777-abt 1862) about 1803 in Charles County, Maryland. They removed from Maryland to Franklin County, Georgia before 1805 and from there went about 1811 to Wayne County, Kentucky. Around 1832 they removed from Kentucky and returned to Georgia (Gilmer County, Georgia in the area that is now Fannin County). He is believed to be buried in this cemetery, but he does not have a marker for his grave. William appears on the 1820 Census of Wayne County, Kentucky, with his father-in-law (Abednago Downing) living next door to him. He next appears on the 1830 census of Wayne County, KY, then the 1840 Census of Gilmer County, GA and 1850 Census of Gilmer County. His wife, Eleanor, was living in the household of her son-in-law, Laten Legg, at the 1860 census.
