I am looking for information on Ben Ashley Thigpen. He apparently was the son of James Thigpen and Sarah Elsie Little of South Carolina.
He married Lucinda Cobb and had 6 children: Emily, Edward, Frances, Green Caldwell, John Allen, and Allice.
Then he married Mary S. Alford. She had been married to Joseph Collins and they had 7 children. Her second husband was Alexander William Goodgion and they had one child, Ophelia Goodgion.
Ben Ashley was Mary's third husband. They had one child, Lydia.
I would love to find anything on Ben Ashley.
