Trying to find any information on a James "Speck" Thomas who may have been born in Lee County, VA around 1827.

The next time we can place him for certain is in the 1850 Owsley County, KY census at the age of 22 with his wife Jalina Hundley 21 living next door to his father-in-law Samuel Hundley.

Researchers have been stumped for years on anything before 1850 in regards to James Thomas. I did find a reference finally to Lee County, VA on the birth register of his son, Wilson Thomas in Owsley County in 1874.
