JACKSON THOMAS, farmer, P. O. Shawhan; was born in Montgomery County, Ky.,
March 19, 1816, son of Robert and Sarah Thomas, both of whom were natives
of Virginia, who came to Kentucky in their childhood. Robert was a farmer
and also a trader, operating with flat-boats down the Mississippi River,
and dealing chiefly in flour, whiskey and tobacco; he died in New Orleans
in 1818, leaving a wife and four children: Eveline, Moses, Jackson and
Robert. Mrs. Thomas removed with her family to Bourbon County, where died
in 1862. Our subject, being orphaned by the death of his father, began
life on his own account as soon as he was able to work and has ever since
been engaged in farming, at present owning 125 acres of good land, upon
which he has a pleasant and attractive home; he was married March 6,
1839, to Miss Elizabeth, daughter of Abraham and Nancy Fry, whose parents
were among the early settlers of Kentucky. Mr. Thomas has been blessed
with six children, three of whom are living: Eveline, Minerva and Eliza,
all being married. Mrs. Thomas and daughters are members of the Christian
Church, and he is a Mason and a Democrat.
