Shirley:

John Thurmond was the son of Philip Thurmond Sr. and Mary Sarah Henderson. According to Amherst Co. records John was born in 1742. He married Molly (Mally?) Dickerson in Jan 1761. They had a son named William in 1761.

There is a Jones Memorial Library in Lynchburg, Va that has extensive records on the Thurmond family and they are very helpful.

My connection with the family is through John's brother, Philip Thurmond Jr. Philip's son, James, moved to GA in the late 1700s and is one of my forebears.
