Ada,
I am assuming you married a Thompson. I am Ronald O. Thompson raised up in the Vernon Parish Area of Louisiana. Lots of Thompson's there.

What is your connection to the Thompson's and where are you from.

You can contact me privately at cockyfox@sbcglobal.net

Ron Thompson.

I am not related to the Thompson's. I am researching the Whittington family.

Ida Thayer Whittington, who resided primarily in the Joliet, Illinois area, was my great grandmother. She married my great grandfather, Cecil Whittington, who was one of three sons of Francelia Curtis Whittington. I am searching for the first name and background of Francelia's husband, and for some reason, I think he was originally from Maryland. If you know anything about him, please let me know.
Thanks,
Jim Whittington

Surnames: MANWARREN, WHITTINGTON
Jim,

It would help to have some dates and place names ...

Is this your family in 1860?
1860 census, IL, Will, Channahon, p. 46, June 14, HH 363/326
Richard Whittington, 24, M, MD
Francelia Whittington, 22, F, NY
Charles Whittington, 10/12, M, IL

Richard's father is not with the family for 1850 census. He and his sister are living with Lucius and Mary MANWARREN. I assume Mary is his mother.

Here is what I've determined:

Tom,
Thanks a bunch fi or this info. It is great to know the first name of my great great grandfather. My goal is to trace the Whittington name back to England, and this surely helps.
Thanks again,
Jim Whittington

Susan,

I am related to the Whittingtons through my Grandfather Archie Monroe Thompson whose mother was Sarah Viola Whittington Daughter of Elisha Whittington of Bayou Chicot, La. His father was Grief Whittington of Amite Co., Mississippi where there was and is a large number of Whittington's.

Does any of this make sense to you.

Regards, Ron Thompson

Surnames: Whittington
I descend from William Whittington 1719-1799 Born England, came to America 1768. There were very Whittington's at that time in Boston, but early Whittington's were in Maryland. Have you searched the Whittington-Brown book by Winona Whittington Pfander? She covers a lot of Whittington lines in that.

William Whittington had one son with Elizabeth Bailey MacNeil Palfrie; William Whittington Jr. He and Hepzibah Lincoln had a very large family. I descend from one of the younger sons; Granville who followed an older brother to Arkansas. Perhaps you are from the Maryland or Virginia Whittington's.

Good Luck.
