Dennis Massengill Thomas

RESEARCHER: Information sent from Doug to Jami Weaver on 23 Jun 2004.

"I have a transcription of some Bible records that read like this:
Sarah E. Thomas - Her Bible, the daughter of ______ Thomas
Dennis Thomas was born August the twenty second 1801
Jerusha Thomas was born August the tenth 1802
Isaac Thomas was born the twentieth of January 1821
William Thomas was born November the fifth 1823
Mary (?) Elizabeth Thomas was born December the first 1825
Dennis B. Thomas was born the 31 day of May 1830
The Bible records are pretty clear evidence of the correct birthdates. The Bible records I obtained were from a Walden uncle who died in the 1970s. He was the son of Harry Walden and a Graham. They had been passed down in the Graham family of Sevier Co, then Davidson Co., Tennesee."


Jerusha Henderson

BIRTH: See notes for husband Dennis Thomas for bible records and date of birth of first children.

BIRTH: Levi B. Salsmans, HISTORY OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHN JACOB RECTOR, (1936), p. 250
MARRIAGE: by Jacob Faubian, M.G. (Book A, p. 396).
EXTRACTS:
Sarah came to Clay County with her parents in 1832. Napoleon Bonapart is believed to have come from Cocke County, Tennessee, and Salmans says that he came by horseback in 1832. It is possible that he was with the group that came out with Rev. Jacob Faubion. Obviously he was in Clay County and knew the family well because he was a witness when William Boydston wrote his last Will and Testament dated 15 March 1834. His obituary says that he resided on the farm where he died for forty-one years in Linden area, which would indicate that he may have 'entered', but probably purchased the farm that was immediately to the east of Rev. Jacob's farm in l833. (Obituary of Sarah Thomas in GENEALOGICAL N0TES FROM THE LIBERTY TRIBUNE, Vol. IV (1874-1880), p. 101. and Obituary of Napoleon B. Thomas, p. 12.)
NAPOLEON BONAPARTE THOMAS, and Sarah, his wife, sold the land for the first Faubion Chapel building to the Church Trustees on 30 January 1850 for Five Dollars. Little else is known of them because they are not included in the Clay and Platte County, Missouri History, 1885, and current family researchers have not picked then up in the census, marriage and land records. Also Estate records in Clay County have not been checked.
It is known that Napoleon B. and Sarah remained in the Faubion Chapel neighborhood, near Barry in Clay County, Missouri, and some of the members of their family were still in the Linden area as late as the 1950s. Sarah and Napoleon had eight children. Salmans says that all but one was buried in Faubion Cemetery but actually only six were buried there - one was still living in Barton county Missouri in 1936. (Records of Faubion Chapel and Cemetery, Clay County, Missouri.)
The children of Napoleon B. and Sarah (Faubion) Thomas, 4th generation, are listed.
