These grave markers, one basically illegible, are located in Nelson County, Virginia, just east of the Rockfish Depot on Rt. 617.

I could not make out all of the writing on the second stone, but trust the research of a fellow genealogist and friend who posted information re: the inscription in the Thomas "genforum" in May 2000.

Out of curiosity, I checked in the 1850 Nelson County census. This family was seen on August 2, 1850 and the following information was listed:

Edward Thomas, age 58, Baptist Preacher
Mary Thomas, age 60
Alsin Thomas, age 32, Baptist Preacher
Edward Thomas, age 22, Baptist Preacher (it was his stone I photographed)
Louise Thomas, age 22
Cynthia Thomas, age 16
Virginia C. Thomas, age 16
