               Personal Knowledge
If every genealogist has a "brick wall", this is mine.  Family stories tell that Robert Nelson Thomas was born near Stone Mountain, GA during the Civil War.  His family lost everything and moved to Alabama.  However, Robert and family were living in Carroll County, GA at the time of the 1900 Census. Another Thomas researcher, Carroll Ray Thomas, has a great-grandfather named Henry Clay Thomas that lived in Marion County, AL at the same time as Robert.  Their pictures hold some resemblance but we can't prove their relationship.  If you are researching this line, please e-mail me!
