From biographical sketches of the Methodist Ministers of the South Carolina Conference: "Thomas Raysor, M.D., born April 13, 1827 in the Green Pond section of Colleton County, South Carolina, died November 23, 1896 in Orangeburg, South Carolina. In 1848 he graduated from the Medical College in Philadelphia, but the call to preach was so imperative that he soon left his medical practice to join the Conference in 1850. His natural dignity and eloquence in preaching was dominated by love and tenderness that made him a most beloved leader among his comrades. To his wife and children he was greatly devoted. As a pastor and presiding elder he was truly a servant of God and man.

Son of Senator Thomas M. Raysor, Sr. and Hannah Stokes of Colleton District, Rev. Dr. Raysor married (1st) Cornelia Erwin Ayer. They had seven children. She is buried in the May-Stokes-Raysor Cemetery in Colleton County.

Thomas Raysor married (2nd) Susan Leard (Laird). They had five children. She is buried in Sunnyside Cemetery.
