Searching for information on George Slater Thomas (1799? - 1870) and wife Catherine Ingle(s?) (1801-1887). George is said to be buried beside a military road from Lambdin house at Tackett Creek and Clear Fork that passes through Rogers Gap into Powell Valley. Said to be buried in a soapstone formation. Catherine was buried there with him in 1877. George came from Lee County to Caliborne County after 1850. He and Catherine had several sons, Alvin (born 1818) and Henry P.(2/24/1827 - 5/2/1871) are easiest to follow. Henry P. married a Sidney McKinney (7/7/1929-6/24/1897), probably from Campbell County, and they moved on to Grainger and Union County. Henry was in USA, Co 'C' , 1st TN Infantry. Other sons and daughters who might be recognjzed in the area of Speedwell or Clairfield are Mary, Susannah, John, Pleasant, William, and George. Mary Ingle(s), mother of Catherine, lived with George Slater Thomas and Catherine until after 1850 (she was 77 yr old in 1850). Many believe, without any proof that I am aware of, that George Slater Thomas is son of Revolutionary soldier Jacob Thomas of Sullivan County (1752-1824) Please respond to Thank you.
