Hello All,

     I discovered this site while researching Thompson families of Arran, Scotland.  According to recent DNA tests I've taken, my 5th Great Grandfather, William Thompson (born ~1741), who immigrated to the U.S. in the mid-late 1700s, is likely to have ancestors in or near Arran.  I'm reaching out to anyone that may have Thompson ancestral ties in the area.  Any information you might have would be more than appreciated, as I've spent years trying to find William's earlier whereabouts.  E-mail me: 

     Thank you in advance for any information you might be willing to share.


Joseph William Thompson

(descendant of Eugene L., Willard R., Ray B., Willard J., William Jr., and William Thompson)
