I am trying to determine if Thomas Howard, born about 1787 in S.C. and listed in the 1850 Census of Forsyth Co., GA is a son of Capt. Thomas Howard. The Thomas Howard of GA arrived in GA about 1846-47. I beleive Thomas Howard of GA had the following children:
Mary A., b. 6-2-1816
Elizabeth, b. ca 1821 (Elizabeth could be a daughter in-law)
Melinda, b. ca 1824
Missouri Amanda "Zeruah", b. ca 1826
Thomas B., b. ca 1831
William H., b. ca 1832
Samuel M. I., b. ca 1838 (Samuel could be a grandson)
Stephen, b. ca 1841 (Stephen could be a grandson)
Alexander, b. ca 1844 (Alex could be a grandson)
Thomas Howard of GA wifes' name was Elizabeth b. ca 1799
All members of this family were born in S.C.
I beleive that Thomas Howard of GA moved to Forsyth County, GA after receiving his part of Capt. Thomas Howards' Estate.
