Born 4/15/1843 in Alabama. Died 12/28/1886 in Groveton from a gunshot wound. Served as sheriff from 5/15/1877 until 11/2/1886. Married Laura Eugenia Morrison sometime before 1872 (possibly in Houston County), and had 10 children. I am looking for his parents. 1880 census shows his widowed mother, Mary A. living with him, aged 63. I also suspect his father was named David. I would appreciate any information you might have on Tom, his parents, or any other of his ancestors. Thanks!
