not cracking open the champange yet......but
« on: August 06, 2011, 10:11:41 AM »
 :o
Just found a Thompson born in Scotland in 1732 on my maternal grandmother (who married a Thompson) father's side (Cox). It appears his father (Cox) married a Clyde from Ireland. The Clyde wife's father married a Jane Thompson  (born in Ireland) and her parents were George Thompson and Jean McLenaghan both from Scotland! And there was jubilation through the land............. of course now I must confirm. Still, it looks like there are Thompsons on both sides of my mother's Family.

Robert W Thompson  (GGGgrandfather) is still a mystery man and the search continues.

Look under enough rocks and you"ll find something...bugs or relatives!

Your cautiously excited Coz,

Thanks Mike, It's been a loooong search and this little bit makes it oh so satisfying!
