[VA] Thurstons of Clarke and Middlesex Counties
I am a great grandson of Franklin Thurston, born in Virginia in 1825. His wife was Amanda Johnson Thurston, born in Virginia in 1847. In 1870 Franklin, Amanda, and their children (Louisa, Harriet and George) lived in Greenway Township, Clarke County, VA.
Franklin was the son of Samuel and Harriet Thurston of Pine Top, Middlesex County, VA.
Amanda was the daughter of Jackson and Harriet Johnson of Chapel Township, Clarke County, VA
Although the entire family is on the 1870 census, only Harriet and George are on the 1880 census. Harriet, now age 15, lived with Samuel and Harriet Thurston. George, now age 10, lived with Jackson and Harriet Johnson.
I am interested in learning the fates of Franklin Thurston, Amanda Thurston, and their daughters, Louisa and Harriet.
