Bill, I have a hunch, although I don't know that it could ever be confirmed. I wonder if he was buried with some Thomas in-laws, who also married Grigsbys. I was born in Chaplin and grew up in Bloomfield (living in Lexington). A Bloomfield schoolmate was living a few years ago on a farm, which I think she said had a Thomas graveyard. She is Mrs. William Taylor, 6370 Highway 1066, Bloomfield, KY 40008-7205. I don't know how active a genealogist she is, but she's certainly interested in family history. The graveyard is either on her farm or very near it. Among others, I believe she's a desc. of the Magruders of Md. and maybe Offutts.
I'm a Grigsby descendant by virtue of a marriage to a Hughes. Also have Foster in that Hughes line, another family associated often with the Grigsbys. There was at least one Redmon Grigsby Foster in Nelson Co.
The only trouble with all this is that all the known tombstones in Nelson Co. have been copied and published in four volumes, and there's no Remey in them. Graves that do exist are those of Benjamin Thomas, b. 1764 and wife Margaret Grigsby, dau. of Redmon Grigsby and Elizabeth. Don't know if that's the Thomas cem. in question, but it is said to be on Hwy. 1066, about 5.5 miles east of Bloomfield. In the book it's called the Thomas-Dugan cem.
If you get no response from Mrs. Taylor, let me know.
