Beverly, The info I have is that Andrew Jackson Thomas and Vincent Thomas were brothers and they were married to sisters, Martha and Sallie Spivey. My Grandpa Thomas once told me that his Grandma Thomas was a full blooded Indian. Vincent and Andrew's parents were Elizabeth "Betsy"Thomas and Ira "Thed" Wilson. Not sure if they were married and then divorced but Betsy and her son's moved from Kentucky and eventually settled in Arkansas. They went by the Thomas name and not their father's name. Andrew's son, James Thomas was my ggrandfather. He was married to Adeline Watson. She was the daughter of John and Nancy Watson I believe. Sounds like we are probably related through both the Thomas' and Watsons. I think James' brother Garrett Thomas was also married to a Watson sister. I find this all very interesting. I don't have any pictures but have found a few on FindaGrave. Most of the info I have found is thru FindaGrave. I have looked at your Find A Grave info and think we do have a lot of the same relatives.

RE: Janie Thornsberry + Vaughen
When I was young, especially on what they called "Decoration Day", my grandparents would take me around with them to all the cemeteries in which they had relatives (a lot them). It took all day, they brought sandwich makings and all of that. Once there, I was counseled and had to be taught that I could not just take off running throughout the cemetery. They showed me that the big stone was the head-stone, so that is the way you could tell where the dead were laid in the ground. It would be showing great disrespect, I was told, to walk over the top of the ground where they were buried, so you looked about six feet opposite of the headstone and if you were going that direction, you had to walk down around the grave space, past the footstone, as if there were an imaginary border placed around each gravespace. The cemetery was thus kind of laid out in little highways you could walk up and down to see the markers and lay your flowers.

I still catch myself looking even today to see if I am walking over the area like where the casket would have been buried, and then walk out around a little extra so as not to disturb the occupant, I suppose. Crazy, huh?

RE: Janie Thornsberry + Vaughen
I might be... still researching.

I left a comment on one of your pages there, and added a photo of the footstone for G.G.V. I thought it was interesting that HIS footstone is on her side of the enclosure. (assuming that they were buried in the order shown on the monument, her name is on the left side, facing west) I noticed you had commented something to the effect that you weren't sure if she was actually buried there. That might explain why there is only one footstone, since they were so commonplace back then.

You know why that was, right? The big deal on footstones? Let me know if you don't.

Best wishes. Thanks!
