Dr. Isaac Thomas Douthit

1Sharp, J.A. - letter, 17 Oct 1961, Mason, T. "to Mr. William Thomas of Athens, Tenn:
Isaac Thomas Douthitt with two other men had been sent ahead of a regiment of Tennessee cavalry to obtain supplies and established supply depots for the regiment which was bound for Texas. They had travelled from Memphis to Little Rock, from where he wrote the letter Aug. 3, 1646. He said he would continue his trip to Fulton, Arkansas, on the Red River. By checking a map you will find Fulton to be located in the southwestern corner of Arkansas on the Red River. He told his sister to address him at San Antonio, Texas, which place he would arrive at by the last of September. Again by checking a map you will find that San Antonio is located far to the south in south central Texas. Now I shall quote directly from this old letter: "I shall pass in fifty miles of Uncle Isaac Thomas but will not have, the opportunity of going to see them."

I consider this last statement conclusive proof that General Thomas was the son of old Isaac, because Isaac Thomas Douthitt was his half-nephew. From Fulton, Arkansas, I feel sure he went down the Red River on a boat to about the same place where Reagan seven years earlier had left the Red River (Natchitoches, La.) and then went over land to the Sabine River crossing. If you check your map again you will find that Natchitoches is almost exactly fifty miles up the Red River from Alexandria, the home of General Thomas."
