Greetings All, my database,"The Art Thomas Database", started in 1992, now has over 
19,000 individuals and is a continuing work in progress. THIS WEBSITE includes only 
those direct Ancestor & Descendant family lines, with spouses, that comprise MY 
personal family tree and is dedicated to them. 

My desire is to share the Love, Hope, Inspiration and Dedication of all those who 
came before me and giving all those who will come after me the Determination,
Devotion and above all else the Rememberances of the many individuals that laid the 
Foundation for their Being.

My Ancestoral Surnames, Primary Locations and Time Periods are: 

PATERNAL FAMILIES 

LAWRENCE--NC,IN (1830- )
THOMAS--VA,NC,IN,OH (1835- )

Research on my paternal lines begin to 'blur' prior to the 1870's due to 
that 'peculiar institution' known as Chattel Slavery. My paternal lines, before the 
end of slavery is centered around Edgecombe County, NC. However, recent discoveries 
through Family Reunions, Internet research, phone calls and just plain 'luck' 
collateral family connections are being made. Slave Schedules, Estate Papers and 
Wills of former slave owners are also proving to be invaluable in 'scaling the walls 
of slavery'.

'Collateral families' to my paternal surnames that have been discovered are BAREFOOT, 
CHERRY, DICKENS, DUE, FOREPAUGH, HERRING and MILES. Most originating from the 
Edgecombe County, NC area.

My paternal family history becomes more easily documentable following Emancipation 
and the end of the Civil War, beginning with the 1870 and later Federal Census 
records for Edgecombe County, NC.

Research on the migration and development of these family and collateral lines from 
NC into Putnam County, IN (Greencastle) from the late 1880's and early 1890's and 
their subsequent family expansion(s) is an ongoing project. 

MATERNAL FAMILIES

ADAMS--VA,KY,OH (1768- )
ALLEN--NC,VA,OH (1820- )
BRIDGES--KY,OH (1825- )
BROOKS--KY,OH (1825- )
EDWARDS--PA,OH (1790- )
LAFORCE--VA,KY,CANADA (1735- )
LEE--VA,OH (1830- )
McKEE--CANADA,OH (1780- )
RENO--CANADA,OH (1780- ) 
SCOTT--NC,OH (1810- )
STEWART--NC,OH (1810- )
WALDEN--NC,OH (1810- )

My maternal lines also carry the "weight" of slavery, but that burden was over for 
most of these ancestral lines by the late 1700's and early 1800's. Although no longer 
in slavery they suffered mightly and overcame many of the slights endured by Free 
Persons of Color during the era of the Ohio Black Codes. 

DESCENDANT LINES

These are the families of my children and their spouses. We've tried to include the 
grandparents, their siblings & other Ancestors of our grandchildren. Hopefully this 
will be of benefit to them as they research ALL of THEIR Family lines. The latest 
addition  ..... a 6th great-grandchild is William Cory Moss, Jr., our 3rd great-
grandson born 12 Oct 2008, his 'tree' spans 14 generations.

Descendant Surnames, Primary Locations and Time Periods are, but not limited to: 
JARRETT--GA,OH (1850- )
MOSS--VA,OH (1795- )
PEAL--NC,IN,OH (1840- ) 
PETERSON--BAHAMAS,GA,OH (1850- )
POTLOW---NC,OH,MI (1870- ) 
SANFORD--KY,OH (1835- )
