Date: Tue, 1 Jan 2008 22:56:17 -0500

The Jett Thomas who married Catherine Hibbard in Elbert Co., GA
is shown in the 1860 census as follows:
Desha Co., AR, Bartholomew Township, P. O. Green Mount, AR
Jett Thomas 40 GA Personal 10,000 Real 21,000 Farmer
Catherine A. 25 GA
Susan 20 GA
John 19 GA
James 18 GA
Albert 17 GA
Alexander 16 GA
Alfred 12 GA
Lucy 11 GA
Caroline 1 AR
John Hebbard 20 GA

All of the boys were of the right age to have served in the
Confederate Army. I have not yet found Jett in a Texas census
for 1870. Do you know where he lived in Texas?

RE: Jett Thomas

Elbert Co. Marriage records show:
Jett Thomas and Eliza S. Oliver on 29 Dec 1836
Jett Thomas and Laura Stockton on 30 Sep 1852
Jett Thomas and Catherine Hibbard on 21 Aug 1856

Cemetery records show Mrs. Eliza Thomas, born 19 Feb 1818, died
7 Jan 1852, buried in the James Oliver cemetery in Elbert Co.

1850 Elbert Co. census records show the following household:
J. Thomas age 32 M born in GA property $8000
E. S. Thomas age 32 F "
M. J. Thomas age 12 F "
S. S. Thomas age 10 F "
J. Thomas age 8 M "
J. Thomas age 6 M "
A. Thomas age 3 M "
A. Thomas age 2 M "
A. Thomas age 1 M "
E. Thomas age 2 F "

One might surmise from the above that after Jett Thomas' first wife
Eliza S. Oliver died on 7 Jan 1852, that he remarried to Laura Stockton
on 30 Sep 1852, then married on 21 Aug 1856 to Catherine Hibbard.
I did not find a Jett or J. Thomas in the 1860 Elbert Co. or adjoining
Hart or Madison Co. censuses.

Does the list of children above agree with the census records you
found in Arkansas and Texas? Did he have children by Laura Stockton
and if so, what were their names? What were names of children by
Catherine Hibbard?

There were no male Thomas marriages in Elbert Co. early enough to
have been the parents of a J. Thomas, born in 1818. There was a
marriage in adjoining Franklin Co. between James L. Thomas and Rebecca
Everett on 15 Oct 1816.

Subject: [GAELBERT] Jett or TW Thomas m. Catherine A. Hebbard (or

Happy New Year Ya’ll!!

I’m trying to find out more information about Jett (or is it TW) Thomas.
The information I’ve found indicates he married Catherine Hebbard (or
Hibbard) in Elbert County in August of 1856. However, I’ve found no
information about his birth, death or anything about him. He is my GG
grandfather. Family lore (and some census records) indicates he left
Georgia for Arkansas and then Texas about the time of the Civil War, and
owned and operated a General Store there. My understanding is that he died
there and then his wife, Catherine, came back to Georgia with their children
in tow.

If you can help me with this, I will be most appreciative.
