Message Detail:
Your welcome. Yes certainly check with Thomaston and other towns surrounding S.Thomaston. For myself I found G.A.R. records in the town which the parents were living in at the time of the war. It was not a "county seat" but it had the R/R going through it, more of a business hub and it was also the post office address for several towns and a larger population
For Thomaston I found the G.A.R. as being the P. Henry Tillson Post #39. But, if you know where he was living at the time he would have been a member, check there first, as he may not have been a member in the town he was buried in and he may have lived closer to a group in another town/county than the one in his town, since he'd have to walk or ride a horse. You also might want to check with the D.A.R., although they preserved genealogy from the Revolution, they kept up with it though out the years. Good luck, happy holidays.~Lori
