my ;;gg pmaternal grandfather was elisha thompson from beaver dam, cherokee co nc; i believe neamiah was his brother; they were both in the thomas walker legion of the civil was and one played a drum, and the other a fife (in later years, he had 2 dogs, one named fife, and one named drum).....clever.
anyway, he was married in his youth and had a dtr, sarah, and a son, bud----but then he "hooked up" with lucreasa jane lambert. having a lot of trouble here, as it is assumed they married, but i cannot find divorce or marriage info, and her death cert lists her as lucreasa jane lambert(h). i found her in a census w/a L. R. Mount, merchant, and she was listed as a laborer. to complicate matters, there was a lot of speculation about why they up and left hurridly in the middle of the night one night--GM said that he came in, had GM lucreasa pack what they could into a quilt, and "up and left" with their baby for KY right then and there in the middle of the night. i often wondered if it was something like war crimes, or perhaps his first wife's family resented the second family situation???
wonder if your neamian IS, indeed, my elisha's brohter?
