I am the son of Willard Downs Thompson, who was the son of Frank Thompson and Mary Ellen Downs, originally from Winslow, AZ. Mary Ellen was related to the family of Dude Downs, supposedly the first "white" child born in the Territory. We have many pictures of Winslow, c 1900's, of the milinary shop the Downs family may have owned, Dude's wedding party, railroad, etc. My sister and I are planning a complete digital catalog of all photographs along with a search for any available information on the Downs family in Winslow as well as the rest of the family who moved on to Southern California. Any contact or information, no matter how small would be great. Just send a note to say "Hello."

Best regards,
