This is page one of the Descendants of Thomas Earls, born in Wythe County Virginia and found with his family in Whitley County Kentucky in 1848 (tax records). Thomas is listed in the 1850 census for Whitley County Kentucky but not in the 1860 census. Elizabeth and the children are listed in 1860 in this county. We have found a Thomas Earls listed in the 1860 census in Virginia with a wife from Whitley County Kentucky. We have not been able to prove that this is our Thomas.
