Tradition has it that Francis Tennille Sr. was a French Hugenot from Picardy, France. His LWT was probated 1779 in Prince William County and named all of his heirs.  One of his sons served in the Second Georgia Continental Battalion during the Revolutionary War.  More information is found in The Austin Collection, Vol. I, by Jeannette Holland Austin and is available to members of Georgia Pioneers.

Mark Thornton of Cumberland Parish in Lunenburg County, Virginia had many descendants in Georgia.  The old man was born in Virginia and died 1809 in Elbert County, Georgia,  leaving a long legacy of accomplished children. More information is found in The Austin Collection, Vol. I, by Jeannette Holland Austin and is available to members of Georgia Pioneers.
