GA on 08 December 1823, with Bainbridge as the county seat. ("Decatur County, Georgia Early Marriage Records & Abstracts Of Early Wills", Georgia Pioneer Publications).
According to the Georgia Gazette, there was an Anthony Lewis who died 07 November 1799 in Screven Co. GA. ("Georgia Obituaries 1740-1935", Jeanette Holland Austin, 1993, pg. 129). Could this be Thomas' father?
