I found the Alachua County, FL will you listed for Lucinda (Thompson) Townsend. It was interesting to me to see Nancy Thompson's maiden name (Bush). I am working on the Thompson genealogy for my granddaughter. Her ancestor is Green L. Thompson, son of Street and Nancy Thompson and brother of Lucinda Thompson Townsend. Do you have any additional information on Street and Nancy Thompson? The 1850 US Census lists Street Thompson's birthplace as Georgia, and the 1900 US Census lists Green Thompson's parents' birthplace as Alabama. Green Thompson and family lived in Hernanco County in 1900. He died in 1907 and is buried in Linden Cemetery in Sumter County, FL.
