I have an Alexander Thompson (son of Edmund Thompson and Martha Howard) He was born abt 1852. He married Adeline Maricle abt 1884. He may have married again. Is the Pocahontas you are referring to Pocahontas Doyle/Dial daughter of Jackson Dial and Nancy Mancil. Can you tell me when "Long" Barney was born? I do not have him listed as a child of Martha and Edmund. I also need any info on Edmund and Martha with them I hit a brick wall. Thanks. By the way Ernest Thompson was the son of Wade Hampton Thompson and Eliza Doyle/Dial. Wade was the son of Edmund and Martha, and Eliza was the daughter of Jackson and Nancy. All of these people lived in or around the Pitkin area of Vernon Parish.
