My ggg grandfather was William J. Thompson, born in Virginia around 1809-1811. He married Margaret Holmes in McMinn, Tennessee in 1840. He had a wife prior to her as there are two children who were born before 1840. 1 in Tennessee and the other in Polk Co Georgia.
I don't know who his parents were nor do I know about any siblings. The family eventually moved to MO, but first Ill and AR...Any information would be greatly appreciated.
