Thanks Bev, the Bobby Thigpen that I know is probably the older one. He used to work at one of the grocery stores when he was younger, weighing produce if my memory serves me correctly. This of course was in Sumter, SC. I am from the older generation now. I graduated from high school in 1962 and left Sumter in 1965. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
. My sister and I are working on this project together and right now our biggest stumbling block is the location of where James William Wilcox Hodge was born and the burial place for Labin D. Hodge. We will certainly share any information that we have with you. Do you live in SC? Have a great day and thanks again.
