  • Name



Thomas Trammell was born in 1747 in North or South Carolina.  He was living in Union, South Carolina in 1780 when he enlisted as a private in Captain Hughes’ Company of Colonel Roebuck’s regiment of the South Carolina Line.  He also served in Colonel Thomas Brandon’s cavalry unit of “Carolina Horsemen.”  Among the battles he fought in were Cow Pens and King’s Mountain.

After the Revolutionary War he drew land in Georgia and moved first to Hancock County, then to Clarke and lastly to Pike the part of Pike County where he farmed later became Upson County).
He died in Pike (now Upson) in 1823 and was buried in an unmarked grave in the Antioch United Methodist Church Cemetery north of Thomaston, Georgia.

Finding this  burial site and honoring my ancestor, Revolutionary War soldier Thomas Trammell with a memorial marker is a great honor to me and one of which I am very proud.  I hope that we can let as many as possible of the great number of descendents of Thomas Trammell know of this discovery.
