About 15 years ago, my great-great aunt in California sent me several hand-written pages of family history.
The bulk of the information was concerning the Thomason family of Floyd, Hall, and Union Counties in Georgia.
This is the estate of my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather.
John Thomason is listed in the 1840 Census with six slaves. The sale of five is detailed in the information from my aunt.
