Thompson - Alabama Genealogy Search
« on: May 06, 2008, 03:45:38 PM »
Let me preface this pedigree with the fact that it is limited ( 2 generations back from me) and may be challenging to complete.  My paternal family tree traces through Walker County, Alabama.  Regrettably, that county courthouse had several fires in the 1800s that destroyed records housed in the building.  My goal is to trace my paternal family tree back to the British Isles.  So, here goes...

1  Lonnie Vester Thompson   1893 - 1971
....+Martha Ellen Christian   
......2  Clemon Thompson ? - ?
..........+  Catherine ?
......2   Flora Thompson
......2   Vesta Mae Thompson
...........+  Carl Phillips
......2  Wilfred Thompson   ? - ?
......2  Elizabeth Thompson
..........+  Unknown Manley
...............3  Hugh Manley
......2  Bertie Thompson
..........+  Unknown Cope
......2  Hattie Thompson
..........+  Unknown Aldridge
......2  Howard Thompson
......2  Baby Boy Thompson, deceased
......2  Wilburn Thompson  1920 - 1998, born in Cordova, AL
..........+ Juanita Lindsey  1929 - 2001, born in Cullman, AL
.............3  Dale Raymond Thompson  1958 -
......2  Claborn Thompson  1924 - 1992
..........+ Dorothy Louise Lindsey  ? -

I know from reviewing what records there are in the State of Alabama archives that there were a number of Thompson families in the Walker County, Alabama area.

Hi Dale,

"Vester" isn't a very common name, and I found a Vester J. Thompson, Jr. on the University of Mobile, AL,  President's Advisory Council - you might try contacting him...maybe you have a common ancestor -
