Classification: Query
Surnames: Thompson, Howard
From notes from interview w/ Ernest Thompson June 1994

Two brothers and a sister crossed the Cane River to settle in the Vernon Parish area. Alec, Edmund and Betsy. They had lived near the Cane River with their father William, who was killed in a hunting accident on the Cane. William's brother's name was John.

William had emigrated from Ireland and had landed in Massachusetts, coming through Tennessee before settling in the Cane River area.

Edmund married Martha Howard; Alec married Emily Ware and Betsy married a full Indian chief, their son was Simon Willis.

Issue of Edmund and Martha: William, Wesley, Alec (2nd wife Pochahonta, kids incl Guy,Wesley, Huey, Short Barney), Enis and Wade (whose son Ernest was source of this info), Evie,Kezia(married John),Sinie, Sugar(maried Chris Perkins),Tennessee and Barney (called Long Barney, youngest of the kids). Barney born 1870, from 1880 Vernon Parish census (ED48,Pg 19), Edmund Thompson(54) is listed with son Edmund B. Thompson(10). So Barney is evidently middle name.

Barney's 1st wife Liddy Doyle (killed by lightning strike), 2nd wife Louisa Calhoun.
