States: North Carolina: Yancey
I wrote a letter to the Mount Olivet Baptist Church in Union County Georgia a few weeks ago, hoping to connect with descendants of John McDaniel Thomas. He was born 9-5-1843 near Micaville Yancey County, N.C. to William Hunsucker (1810) and Nancy Willis Thomas. They migrated to Union County about 1850 (evidence puts them there on and off from about 1830). John who was known as “Mac” was married three times that we know of and two of the three wives are buried next to him in the Mt. Olivet Bapt. Church cemetery. I have most all the sibling information – our line actually is through Joseph Monroe and Naomi Adeline Hayes Thomas – and I have the ancestral lines back to Joseph Thomas born about 1755. Was hoping to connect with others of the family to see if they know who Nancy Willis born 1812 was… have not been able to track down her parents to date. She was said to have been born in what is now Mitchell County next door to Yancey County… would have been Buncombe County at the time in North Carolina. Have filled in the gaps in most all the descendancy but hers… Leslie Thomas <firstname.lastname@example.org>
