I have been a member here for awhile, and have my Thompson info posted.
I have learned new stuff and now found this Welch forum. I will start with giving as
much of my info in my Thompson and Welch Families:
My father was Herbert C. Thompson b. 1930 Spfld, OH d. 1980 he was the son of
Harvey Thompson b. 1899 Claiborne Co. TN d. 1971, mother was Rosa P. Rice b. 1901
Harvey was the son of:
Lewis Anderson Thompson b. 1862 Hancock Co. TN and Nancy Irene Welch b.
1872 Claiborne Co.? TN. both died months apart in 1940. Nancy's line will be below!
Wm. Harvey Thompson b. 1838 Hancock Co. TN d. ? and Manerva Howell b. abt 1840
Lee Co. VA. Wm's parent's:
Lewis/Louis Thompson b. 1813? VA m. Sarah(Sallie) Gilbert b. abt 1821? VA
Nancy Irene Welch parents:
William Welch b. 1839 Powell Valley, TN d. 1889?TN. and Mary Elizabeth Brooks b. 1843 TN
d. 1915 TN . Parents of William:
John Welch b.1818 or 1814 in VA? d.1883 m. Susannah Brooks b. 1818 NC? d. 1897
The reason I have so little info is that another Welch family is claiming our info is theirs!
A file was sent to my Welch line yrs ago stating the parents of John was Joseph Welch b. 1798
VA? and Sarah Harbison. They claim that the info we have from William back is theirs and that
the nice folks at the CCPP mixed up the John's, which is probably what happened, but repeated
request for the families to work together to sort this out has been ignored, so I am attempting to
do this with out their help and am very much interested in the Welch DNA Project. I am in contact
with the descendants of Nancy Welch brother and would like to find out all I can before we start
raising the money for a male donor of this line!
