John Thomason has several variations of his surname. After I finally figured out it was NOT Thompson, I have found Thomasson, Thomison, Thomaston and Thomston. He was born in GA in 1831 but by 1850 was in Randolph Co, AL and 1870 and 1880 was in nearby Clay Co, AL. He was married to a lady named Serena and had at least 6 children with her. I do not know when he died or where buried.
His parents were Hiram Thomason and Charlotte Beaver, both probably born in SC.
