Be prepared for any and all names to be spelled every which way but loose. (^_^) Census enumerators and county clerks seemed to spell names as they saw fit. LOL Middle names for females seems to depend on family traditions, or maybe trend for the area in which they lived. Some of my lines have middle names back quite a ways and some don't. The same for men in some families, too. I have one line that uses family surnames for the middle names of the males in the family, making for high tone sounding names. My father had 3 brothers and 1 sister, they all had middle names except my father. He hated his name, and poor guy didn't even have the choice of using a middle name instead.
Since Thomas died in Hall Co, GA, I would look for land and probate records. See what turns up in those records.
