  • ID: I105692
  • Reference Number: 105692
  • Name: Thomas L. Hightower
  • Given Name: Thomas L.
  • Surname: Hightower 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • Change Date: 08 MAY 2014
  • Birth: ABT 1810 in South Carolina, USA 1
  • Note: Thomas would have been born in Telfair County, Georgia, as Coffee County was not created from portions of Telfair until 1854. However, even though the 1850 Lowndes County, Georgia Federal census lists the birthplace of Thomas as Georgia, it seems more likely that he was actually born in South Carolina, as were his siblings. Thomas did live in Georgia by 1836, and his children were born in Georgia. 2
