Are You My Cousin?: Tombstone Tuesday Harriett Thomas

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Tombstone Tuesday Harriett Thomas

Harriett [Judd] Thomas
Wife of
T Thomas
b. Nov 18, 1808
d. Jan 6, 1901
V. F.
Dau of
H. B. and B. I. Thomas
Died June 4, 1889
Age 2 1/2 years

This is the tombstone of my GGGG-Grandmother Harriett Judd Thomas, mother of Mary Adaline Thomas. Her grave is at Baptist Chapel Cemetery near Broadway, NC. This was originally the Thomas family homeplace and her tombstone was placed in the family cemetery. (The church was not at this location until about 1913.) I am unsure of who the child is that is listed on the bottom of her tombstone. Based on the age of the child, it could not have been Harriet's as she would have been in her 80's at the time the child died. Another mystery to solve....
