Regarding Cousin Bud Hi Khris, My name is Vicki Ledgerwood-smith. My Grandmother was Mary Susan (Thomson) Ledgerwood. My Great Grandfather and Grandmother were Ithamer Lucious Thomson and Maude Marella (Pierson) Thomson.
C.E. Thomson and Maude Thomson would be Aunt and Uncle to my grandmother. Elah and mable and Harold were her first cousins and my second cousins.
Anyway, I've been updated the family genealogy and I have been putting pictures together of family. I've ran across tons of pictures of the Thomson's and the Martins. I have pictures of Elah, Mabel and Harold as babies and young children. I was wondering if you would mind if I posted them?
