Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been an active genealogist for over 15 years and a "Find A Grave" contributor for over 11 years. Along the way, I discovered that my Thompson family has been in America since the middle 1600's. Proudly, I can count among my ancestor's and relatives, veterans from most major American conflicts to include the War for Independence, War for Southern Independence, WWI, WWII, and Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

I trace my interest to genealogy to my maternal grandmother, Hazelle Burdette Thompson, whose family was active collecting records when you had to do it with pencil, paper and the U.S. Postal Service.

I am a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, through Shearod Thompson (Find A Grave Memorial# 44316315), my 4th great grandfather. Shearod was a militia man and a private in the Continental Army. He fought at the battle of Guilford Courthouse and was present at General Lord Cornwallis' surrender in Yorktown.

I earned my D.D.S. from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and spent 27 years serving our country in the U.S. Army.

RE: Charlotte Land Thompson-Shearod Thompson
Thank you so for the reply! That is a deed we have not seen-gives me hope! Do have some interesting deeds and court records from the settlement of his estate, but they did not write in the women's names.
I will be searching!

Wish I had your knowledge!

Thank you again;

Charlotte Land Thompson-Shearod Thompson
Dear Dr. Thompson,

Your memorial is remarkable, and so informative! I need to better!

I am helping another DAR member, also to Shearod Thompson try to connect to Charlotte's family for she thought that Pvt.John Land, Rev. Soldier was her father. I have searched every record I can find, but to no avail. Nothing mentions Charlotte as a child of his.
my information is that Sheared and Charlotte were married in York or Chester District, SC, 1790, after the death of John Land in battle in 1881.
Can you give me any help for this nice lady?

I have just entered this memorial.

If this is family, I would be honored to transfer this to you. Even if not and you'd like to add some photos (as you have to the other Rau memorials), that would be wonderful.

Thank you Geoff for the picture. I visited this cemetery last fall but did not make the connection. I did find Edgar and his wife.

RE: Melvina Braswell Thompson
Thank you for replying. I remember seeing a marker with the name Elvira but there was no noticeable last name. The marker was in bad shape.

Melvina was my great grandmother. Her oldest son, James Washington Thompson, was my mom's father. I do not know if James and Lee Ida 'Lydia' Lewis were actually married but they were living together in Pasco County when he passed away in 1930. His body was shipped to Meigs, Georgia.

I recently visited Midway Baptist Church Cemetery in Meigs, GA and was unable to find Melvina's marker. The marker for her son, Edgar and his wife were found. Do you have any record of Melvina's burial that you would share? Thank you, Dianna
