Bio and Links
Bio Photo My aunts got me interested in genealogy in the 1980s and I have been working on it off and on ever since. I am now retired and probably devote 40 hours a week to my research and helping others with theirs.

Findagrave.com became such an important tool that I began to "pay it forward" by adding missing memorials as I found the need. I don't have large numbers, but I am trying to add every one with documentation that I find. A missing memorial is better than an incorrect one in my opinion.

I will gladly transfer a memorial to a member of a family who is actively working on genealogy and will cooperate with others (which means sharing data via email. I personally do not like using "public messages.")

RE: Emma Thompson
Hi Bill, we have the same man, but according to my information (from his sister, my grandmother) his middle name was Lorenzo.

He died about 1927 and is believed to be buried in the First Baptist Church of Glendale (Miss.) Cemetery. There's no marker, and because of a church fire, the records are lost. His grandson, Leon Lee, once told me that he recalled his grandfather was buried there with some Cannons, Mimi's family.

My information on the Thompsons pretty much ends with James, and I know very little about him. That above paragraph is about it. My grandmother didn't know much about his family because he died when she was about 5, and I didn't know her side of the family very well because we all lived up North, and they all lived in the South.

Bill I checked the death certificate record and census reports and have linked family members to J. R. Thompson. Perhaps the links will be helpful.
