Leave a Note in the Grave Yard

Grave Marker of Thomas Nicholsonscan0121This marker for the burial of Thomas Nicholson (about 1800–Dec. 24, 1890) is located in the Talona Baptist Church Cemetery in Whitestone, Georgia, on the Gilmer and Pickens County Line.

Eyes are immediately drawn to the wooden stack with the lamented note left by “…Patsy Payne Hall, the great great granddaughter of Thomas and Susanna (Susan) Nicholson…” In the note Pat described her relationship to Thomas Nicholson, provided her mailing address, her telephone number, and an e-mail address. Pat had a great idea for locating other folks who are also descendants (or researching) this Nicholson family.
