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

My cousin is looking for family members of Martin C. Thompson. It was his father and he was just a baby when he was killed in 1981. My cousin's name is Kenneth (Kenny) and his brother was Robert (but, we called him Robby) Martin was married to Lynda King briefly. Any information about his father Martin and family members please contact me via Facebook Stephanie Rawls-DeMaya or by email [contact link] He has tried to get case info about his death but, this was all pre-internet. He is hoping to connect with family members of his father and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

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!
