Does anyone have any information on the following lineage for this Thompson branch from Grandy/Poplar Branch/Currituck? My father was Clark Thompson, son to Thomas Drayton, my grand father.
Thomas Drayton. Thompson, Born 1881, Died 2/2/1919
Wife: Sarah J. (Sadie) Owens Thompson, born 1/12/1885, Died 12/12/1931 (Sadie also remarried a John Woodhouse approx 1921 after my grand father passed away.)
Children with Thomas D: Minnie, Clarence, Clark, Winton, Lucian
Edmond Johnson Blanwell Thompson, Born 1841, died 3/19/1930
Wife: Matilda Evans Thompson, born 1844, Died 3/16/1918
Children: Thomas Drayton and Sarah Evans Thompson.
William Thompson, a Miller, born Approx 1789 61 in 1850 Census...No other information
Wife: Elizabeth , born Approx 1815 and was only 35 n 1850 Census..no other information
Children Edmond Thompson, age 6 in 1850 Census, and Thomas D, age 8 in 1850 Census
I cannot get any further back than William as to who his father is. Nor can I find any record of him prior to the 1850 Census nor after. Nor any death certificate for him, his wife or children. I am working on an assumption that his son Thomas D, may have been a Thomas D. Thompson, a confederate soldier, who is the right age as one who enlisted from Currituck at the age of 21 in 1862, was captured in Dec of that year, taken ill and transported to a hospital in Feb of 1864. In April of that same year he jumped from a 4th floor window to his death. Not sure if he was attempting suicide or escape (article said suicide). My theory is Edmond, my great grandfather, then named his son, my grand father Thomas D. in his honor - thinking it WAS his brother.
Does anyone have any information about Williams father or where he and his wife, Elizabeth, may be buried? Or any information about Elizabeth Thompson, Matilda Evans Thompson or Sarah (Sadie) Owens Thompson?
Thank you, Cathy Thompson Mosley
