A large group of descendants of James Thomas Sr. and Drury Bridges attended a tour of the Trigg County Justice Center. The tour included the room that contains the Coats of Arms, where three shadow boxes donated by the late Edison H. Thomas were on display.

The shadow boxes contained pictures and medals of James Thomas, Sr., who fought in the Revolutionary War; Cullen Bridges who was in the Civil War; and Robert Peyton Thomas, who was in World War I. All were ancestors of the late Edison H. Thomas, who asked for the boxes to be placed in a safe place and to not be removed from the walls.

Following the visit of the display in the Justice Center, the group visited the Trigg County Historical Society Museum. The museum is located in the old Masonic building behind the new Justice Center.

Many commented on both locations being enjoyable and expressed appreciation to James Thomas Chapter KSDAR and Stephen Trigg Chapter SAR, sponsors of the event. This was a part of the annual Thomas-Bridges Annual Reunion.
