I am looking for information on the Thompsons from Polk County, NC and specifically from Silver Creek as I understand that there are 2 different and distinct branches in Polk and Rutherford Counties. I have as follows:
-William "Billy" Thompson born 1791 or 1792 married
Children: Selena Thompson 1825
John G. Thompson 1837
Jane Thompson 1841
Elizabeth Thompson 1842
- William received 3 land grants near the head of Silver Creek in the Cooper's Gap Township of Polk County in the early 1800's.
If you have this line, I'd love to hear from you. I have only been able to locate one living relative in Polk County who was adopted into John G. Thompson's (above) family.
