Are there any members that are decendents of veterans of The Thomas Legion.
My 3rd great-grandfather was Capt. James W. Terrell. He was quartermaster of The Thomas Legion.

Well, you probably have these, but:

This one is a muster roll, so as quartermaster/paymaster he gets mentioned several times:

Thank you Sam Grant for the info. I will check out every link you sent me.


Btw everyone ...I realize I put this post in the wrong place on this forum. If I knew how to move it I would, however, I'm lucky to just be able to do this.
