Thames was the Cornelius Thames who was issued a passport through Indian Territory for himself, his wife, four children and seven negroes, all traveling from Beaufort District, SC. The 1810 census for the Beaufort District clearly enumerated this family with the passport as "Cornl. Tims, 1M0-9, 1M26-44, 3F10-16, 1F26-44, 7 slaves" The family with the passport appears to be the one referenced in "The Succession Records of St. Helena Parish, Louisiana 1804 - 1854": Cornelius Thames, February 22, 1821- Petition of Rachel Thames, widow of Major Cornelius Thames, who died February 1821, leaving no will and eight children. The children are all minors and their names are Reddin, Sarah, Mary, Rachel, Miss Hanson, Washington, Adeline, and Clementine. Dr. Timothy Thames, brother of the deceased, is appointed undertutor to the minors. October 16, 1827 - Petition of Mrs. Rachel Thames for a family meeting. October 16, 1827 - Family meeting recommending the sale of property it then names members whom attended. November 28, 1827 - The petition of Mrs. Rachel Thames shows she bought (this may mean she brought to the marriage) property consisting of one tract of land which was inherited from her grandfather in the State of SC. Her husband sold the land and purchased certain slaves. Her husband inherited $300 from his father's estate. She wishes the paraphernalia (pertains to parapherna or property brought to the marriage) property to be taken out of the succession etc.
