Generations Past

There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors and no slave who has not had a king among his.

The Thompson's

The origin of our branch of the Thompson family is unknown.

The oldest member of the family that I know about is F. M. Thompson.  We know that he had a son in Giles County, Virginia in or about 1868 and he was married to Elizabeth. We know this from the Giles County Wedding license for his son Robert Harvey Thompson.

Robert Harvey Thompson had a son named Arthur Francis Thompson who married Nancy Alice Varney of Ragland, Mingo County, West Virginia.  Their son was Carl Ray Thompson.

Hopefully, more information will come to light, but for now this family's history is a mystery.
