Thanks Deloris....back to the drawing board for my pre-Civil War Thomas'. Records indicate they were born in Virgina, were held as slaves in NC and freed following the CW.
However, there were a couple of FPOC Thomas' in Edgecombe Co., NC in 1860, Could have been freed in a state other than NC, freed under given name only and assumed the Thomas surname after freedom. Many, many possibilties here.
Oh well, this is what makes this stuff so fascinating.
