  • Notes 
    • John was a Hobo in his younger life and rode the trains until settling in Macon and getting married.

      After Josephine Atwell Thomas died, their was a young man that was killed in a motorcycle accident. The young man had no family or money in this area so John W. Thomas had him buried in his family plot. As far as I know there is no grave stone nor marker of any sort on any in the Family plot located in Evergreen Cemetery off Houston Rd. in Macon, GA No one remembers the name of the young man.
