Jack Thompson was born in Virginia in 1811, he married a Violet Sims from Texas. His parents are from Virginia but it doesn't give their names.

Jack Thompson and Violet Sims had four children that I know of:

Levi Thompson b. 27 Nov 1856 d.28 Jun 1947
Green Thompson b. 1861
V. Thompson
O. Thompson

Levi Thompson had several children, the mother/wife is unknown. One of those children being my Great-Great Grandfather (James) Henry Thomson (the "p" in Thompson was omitted on the records).

Henry Thomson was b. in 1883 in Texas and d. 09 Feb 1950.
Henry married Adline whose maiden name is unknown and also had several children, oral history says they may have had 19 children, one of which was my grandfather Garthie Thompson.

Garthie married Ida Mae Paige/Page in Fayette County, La Grange, Texas and they had 9 children. One of their children, Willie Ray Thompson was killed in Vietnam which now leaves 8, Jerlene, Charles, Raymond, Earline (my mother)of San Antonio, TX; Gloria Ann of Gaithersburg MD; Edward Paige of Ft. Worth, TX; Melvin of Austin, TX; and Linda of La Grange, TX.

Edward Paige didn't go under Thompson because there was an error on his birth certificate.

Garthie Thompson d. in Tarrant County, Ft. Worth, Texas in 1984

Ida Mae Thompson b. 26 Oct 1921 d. 2 Jun 2007
