Thompson / Knox abt 1820 N.C.
Posted by: Patrick Thompson (ID *****3275) Date: July 25, 2011 at 11:56:14

Martin Thompson reportedly married M Catherine Knox (Polk) abt. 1820; He was from S.C. and She was from N.C. per later Census Records; rumor is she was from "Mecklenburg County", NC. Prior to the 1841 record below, we can find "NO" information...

Looking for information on MARTIN THOMPSON who purchased 80 acres in the 1st District of the 1st Section; Lots 47 & 86, Forsyth County, GA from James (?-hard to read) Roberts on the 24th day of October 1841. He later bought an additional 40 adjoining acres (same dist + sect) Lot 87 from David Blackwell on the 21st day of January 1843.

Martin Thompson is listed in the Forsyth County GA 1850 Agricultural Census and the 1850 Federal Census #900. His Wife and All the Children are listed on the Federal Census but his oldest Child, A.J. Thompson.

The 1850 Census reports him being born in SC and his wife Catherine being born in NC. All children are shown born in NC except for the youngest child, Ransom Thompson, who was born in Forsyth County, GA in 1846.

There was one marriage from this family out of Forsyth County, GA in 1853. Martin's daughter, Sophronia Thompson, married Jesse (Jessie) Webb BOOK C; PAGE 23 FORSYTH COUNTY GEORGIA RECORDS, 08 Dec 1853.

Martin Thompson Sold his land in Forsyth County, GA before 1860 and moved to Tucker, GA where the family moved as well and settled in Stone Mountain, DeKalb County, GA.

ANY information on this Family (any member) would be GREATLY APPRECIATED. We have hit a brick wall on information pertaining to Forsyth County, GA or MARTIN and CATHERINE's Origins prior to 1841.
