About The Thompson Family
Please sign in to see more.
The Thompson website was started with information given to me by my  grandfather, James M. Thompson, Sr.  He and his wife, Doris, had traveled  extensively to visit with relatives and learn about his ancestors.  Family was  very important to him during his life.  He strongly encouraged us to attend  Price Family reunions when I was a small child.  (Sarah Price was his mother.)   Years later, my sister, Linda Blackman, and I joined our parents and our  children in attending an Ellis Family reunion at Lake Arrowhead in Oklahoma.   (Nina Ellis was my father's mother.) After the death of my grandfather, I  endeavored to add to the already long list of family members. I began  corresponding with several relatives who were also interested in learning more  about our family.  My father, James M. Thompson, Jr., and I took oral histories  in Arkansas and visited court houses in Howard and Sevier counties in  Arkansas.  In 1974, my husband, Fred, and I visited living relatives in Georgia  and the gravesites of deceased relatives there.  Shortly after that, my son,  Lee, was born and the research project took a back seat for the next 32 years  while Lee was growing up, getting married to Britany Webb, and adding a new  leaf on the tree, Rylee Grace Davis, in 2005.  Following the deaths of my  parents in 2005, interest resurfaced in this tribute to all the special people  in our family.  Of course, our family tree is very extensive, so you see many  names besides Thompson here.

As mentioned before, my grandfather passed on several files loaded with much  information.  However, Raymond Ellis, who lived in Fayetteville, AR, until his  death, is the champion genealogist of our family.  Ray spearheaded the Ellis  reunions in Oklahoma that were grand times!  He collected, researched, and  shared pages and pages of information about that family branch, and I am  personally indebted to and amazed by his dedication to family.

7-29-08  I want to give credit to two cousins who hail from Fayetteville, AR, who have  contributed valuable information that completed some "branches" and precious family  pictures which make the "photo tree" view very special.  Thanks to Jim Britt Walker,  my mother's nephew, and Ruud Land (Rudy) DuVall, my father's cousin's son.  Their  interest has been an inspiration to me this summer.

I hope you will enjoy this website.  Feel free to email your comments and  suggestions to me.  Let me know if I need to make corrections and when I need  to make additions to this fine old "tree."  Be sure to sign the guest book!
