|Birth: ||Mar. 31, 1777|
Eleanor Downing was born in Trinity Parish, Charles County, Maryland, and is the daughter of Abednago Downing (1753-1833) and Millicent Waters (1755-1853). She married William Thomas (1778-1858) about 1803 in Charles County, Maryland. She and her husband, along with William's father and her father, removed from Maryland to Franklin County, Georgia before 1805. Sometime after 1810 they removed to Wayne County, Kentucky where they lived for more than 20 years. About 1832 they removed from Kentucky and returned to Georgia (in Gilmer County, Georgia,the area that is now Fannin County). She died sometime after the 1860 census was taken (about 1862). She is believed to be buried in this cemetery but does not have a tombstone marking her grave.
