John Thomason Estate (1776 – 1846)

20 May

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.

“Estate of John [Y.J.] deceased.

Zimri Thomason, Harmon Thomas, Young thomason, Henry David Thomason, James Allen Thomason named on the Bond with ams of John Thomason deceased dated 2nd day of November 1841.

Twenty five hundred dollars Zimri and Harmon named administrators. Zimri Thomason, Hiram Thomason, Young Thomason, H.D. Thomason and J.A. Thomason.

E.M. Johnson ordinary other heirs named James W. Barton, Gaston Humphries, Young H. Barton, Andrew Elliot, Willson Pierce (also written Prince).

One daughter probably married Davis Barton 1821

One daughter probably married an Elliot

One daughter probably married a Humphries

One daughter probably married a Pierce.

Or else these were his nephews if not grandchildren.

    Hey cousin. I’m also descended from John Poindexter Thomason. I’m from Harmon Thomason’s line. Did your great-great aunt know who John’s father was? I’ve been trying to figure out what country the Thomason’s came from. Thanks for this contribution!
