David THOMAS died sometime after Nov. 1853 in Macon Co., AL and prior to that he had his Will also filed in Caswell Co., NC. I recently got a copy of this Will that was on file at the NC Archives in Raleigh and it was there that I learned that the "true copy" had been filed in Caswell Co. I do not yet know why a copy of an Alabama will was filed in NC and more specifically in Caswell Co., NC

I am interested to learn of any siblings, parents or other relatives of David THOMAS who died between 1853 & 1854 in Macon Co., AL & whoes will was also filed in Caswell Co., NC. He was probably born about 1815 - 1820, perhaps in Caswell Co., NC. He married 15-Oct-1843 in Macon Co., AL to Mary Elizabeth HARRISON, dau. of Hartwell HARRISON & Mary Ann KEY. They had five daughters :
1) Mary Ann THOMAS
2) Sarah Elizabeth THOMAS, b. 7-Nov-1846 & m. 18-Sept-1867 to Alex. S. RUSH
3) Susan THOMAS, m. William RAY
4) Anna Pauline THOMAS
5) Caroline THOMAS
