Thomas was born 20 March 1824 in Pendleton, Anderson Co. So. Car. The 1860 census shows him in District 1003 Paulding Co. Ga. which is near the Alabama line. He has 2 cards in his archival file.

This unit was consolidated with the 15th Battn: Ala Partisan Rangers on 8 June 1863 commanded by Major Boyles, and eventually became the 56th Regt. Ala. Partisan Regiment. There is no official regimental history for these units. However, some data is available. The 13th served in the Mississippi & East Louisiana Dept and was engaged at the battle of King's Creek in the Vicksburg Campaign under General Ruggles. The 56th operated in north Mississippi for some time under Gen. Ruggles. It was there brigaded under General Ferguson and sent to north Georgia. It served on the flank of the army during the Dalton-Atlanta campaign and saw arduous duty. The regiment moved with Gen Hood to Tennessee, then turned and harassed Sherman. It was in the trenches near Augusta, it moved into the Carolinas, and surrendered at Greensboro, about 200 strong. Many of the men came from Walker County, Ala.
Thomas died 26 July 1917 in Paulding Co. Georgia. He married Mary Ann Fannin b. 25 Mar 1830 and d. 11 June 1914. They are buried at New Hope Church, Dallas, Paulding Co. Ga. He is the father-in-law of my distant cousin.
