Thank you for your prompt response and believe it or not I thinks the world gets smaller all the time. I used to know a Bobby Thigpen when I was a teenager, I wonder if this is the same Bobby Thigpen. Are you related to him? I'm sure that we do have some of the same relatives and I guess my question, are you and I related? I was born in Sumter, SC and both of my parents were from Sumter County and Clarendon County. We used to attend Providence Baptist Church and Home Branch Baptist. Will look in my files for your folks names and will be in touch again real soon. I wanted to respond so you would know that I had received your message. Keep in touch.
