Do you know when and where your Talitha Jane Thompson was born?
The sister of my gg.grandmother was born as Talitha Jane Gist/Guess in Marion Co. AL., in 1859, but after here mother remarried in 1869 in Alcorn, Mississippi, then Talitha began to use the surname of her stepfather, Benjamin F. Thompson.
I've not been able to find 'my' Talitha in later census's, but family legend suggests she later lived near Covington, TN.
Any bells here?
