My grandfather's first wife (unknown name) was killed by a train when her car stalled on the tracks. Does anyone know who this mystery woman was. What was her maiden name? Did they have children together before she died?

My Grandfather's name was Scott Edward Thompson Born: July 12 1910
His parents were Edward and Winnifred Thompson of San Bernadino, CA

He would have married this mystery woman in the 1930's - 1940's probably in southern california. Maybe San Bernadino, Pamona, Upland...area?

If you know who this woman may be please let me know.

Thank you

Hello again Deb,
If you do intend to search backwards from 1760, are you aware of the site www.rootsireland
They use Official records, started about 4/5 years ago and are good.

Good luck with your searches,
Derek

My grandmother's name was Idona Thompson and she was born in the 1880's in Loiusiana. She married John W Fairchild and they moved to east Texas. I had my DNA tested recently and I am mostly Irish which was a surprise. My father was born in Louisana and adopted so I cannot find out about that side of my family. I have never heard that my grandmother had relatives but I would love to find out. If anyone knows of an Idona Thompson, please reach out to me. Thanks!
