Hi,

        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!
Lewis's parents:
        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!


                                                                                                                                  Evie

New member. my family has an Owen Gilllaspie married a Elizabeth  Welch on 1833 Floyd co Va. This data on line with floyd co Va marriages

Also, A john and Nancy Thompson's daughter Mary Elizabeth Thompson married a George Henry Gillaspie(this name is spelled various ways) records at Floyd co Va on line marriage records. Our family records refer to her as "Lizzie" as her nickname.  Owen and Elizabeth (Welch) are the parents of George Henry and reflected on the marriage record at Floyd Co Va. (FCVA)

I'm trying to find the father of John Thompson who is cited as living in Franklin co Va on the marriage record for their daughter Mary Elizabeth Thompson who married George Henry Gillaspie...Need to trace this John Thompson's family.
Any information on the John Thompson family or this Elizabeth Welch would be appreciated.  Floyd/Franklin/ or connecting VA counties.
I am willing to work with you...This is the earliest dates I have for the Thompson's and Welch in my family in VA. 

I know that Owen and Elizabeth (Welch) Gillaspie stayed in the Floyd and Franklin co area and raised their family....Owen /Elizabeth  my ggg grandparents.  I don't know much about the Welch's.  Welch is the name on court record at Floyd   
thank you

one (or more) males named John Thompson received a large number of land grants in what is modern-day Bedford County.  These had grant recording dates beginning @ 1760 and up through the 19th century.  There is a big gap after 1787 until 1809, so I am guessing the latter were to a different persons. These were sizable holdings, suggesting a man of considerable means.  These were scattered all over the county. 

To narrow it down some, you might look at a grant issued to one Samuel Jones in 1874 on the NW side of McFalls Mountain on the North Fork of Goose Creek.  One John Thompson is named as a adjoiner.  One of his corners was a "pile of rocks on the old Gap Path".

From my own researches I can tell you a John Welch lived in the vicinity of McFalls Mountain (near the western border of Bedford, in the Blue Ridge. Other adjoiners are also named, including John G. Garrett, Thomas McMillan, William G. Marrell, Daniel Moseley.  Beyond that, I cannot add except to wish you luck.  If you connect up the dots to this John Welch, please be so kind as to send me a reply.
