    Notes 
    • From the Deed Records of Franklin Co, GA, Abstracted and compiled by Martha Walters Acker, pg 87:

      Bill of sale dated 20 Nov 1805, rec. 24 Dec 1805, from A. Franklin and Isaac Strickland, executors of John Gilbert, to Alexander Thompson, Jr. (?) In cons. of $630, conveys a negro woman named Betty and two of her children, a boy named Nelson and a girl named Celi. Wit: J.I.C. Cleghorn

      Alexander Thompson settled on the place on which John Hopkins lived and died. He was a most excellent man and was one of the first elders of the Presbyterian church of Danielsville before its removal to town, when it stood two miles south of town and was known as Pisgah church. About 1820, Alexander Thompson, Jr. sold his place near Danielsville to a Mr. Towns, and removed to Mississippi, and the subsequent history of him and his family is unknown to me. (From HISTORICAL SKETCHES, PRESBYTERIAN CHURCHES AND EARLY SETTLERS IN NORHTEAST GEORGIA)

      Alexander Thompson, Jr. came to Amite County in 1818 with the Epps, Powells and Wells. They organized the Pisgah Presbyterian Church with Rev. Robt. Smiley pastor. This church is now in Summit with all its records. (From HISTORY OF PIKES COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI by Connerly, pub. 1909)
