Alexander Smith RUSH m. Sarah Elizabeth THOMAS 18-Sept-1867 in Clio, Barbour Co., AL.. Alex was originally from DeKalb, Kemper Co., MS and was in Kemper's Legion, the 13th MS Infantry. He was in the battle of Sharpsburg, MD and was wounded. In 1864 he was captured and sent to Camp Chase, IL and was released in 1865. He migrated to Barbour Co., AL in 1866 and married in 1867.

Sallie THOMAS was a daughter of David & Mary Elizabeth (HARRISON) THOMAS of Warrior Stand, Macon Co., AL. David THOMAS had plantations in Macon & Barbour Co., AL. He was originally a native of Guilford Co., NC and moved to Gaswell Co., NC about 1830 and then on to AL abt. 1832. He married Mary Elizabeth HARRISON 15-Oct-1843. His will was filed Dec., 1853, in both Macon Co., AL & Gaswell Co., NC. Following the death of David THOMAS in 1854 "family rumor" has it that a brother of his helped to run his plantations.

I'm seeking information on the "brother" of David THOMAS and other siblings who might have been in these two counties - Macon & Barbour.

Also seeking information on RUSH families in Barbour Co. prior to 1866.
