Hi Blair - Jefferson B. is my gggrandfather. Have you verified that Thursa's last name was Moore? I have never seen it anywhere. My mother remembers her grandmother calling her "Tersey", by the way.

I would love to see anything you have on this family - Thursa has been a big dead end for me. I read in someone's notes that she filed for a civil war pension, but have been unable to find records of that in GA or NC. I have not been able to determine when John A. and Thursa came to GA, although I believe it was prior to 1850. You can view my research at Thanks for any help you may be able to give me!
