Edward,

When was Cynthia Thompson born and when did she died? I need a little more information about Cynthia in order to help you. Do you have a birthdate  and death date for Martin?

Thanks,

Bobbie

Thank you for responding. I have found out her details. Cynthia Mary Thompson born in Christiansburg VA in 1858 and died in Tampa in 1937.

Thank you

Her son Charles Frederick was 12 in 1894 so still looking for his father.

Thanks again

Hi Ed,

Have you found his parents on the 1880 Federal Census yet? Do you know if he had any siblings?

Thank you again

Yes I have the 1880 census for Cynthia but Charles Frederick was born in 1881 (12 in 1894 +/-). In 1880 Cynthia was still living with her parents Ennis Slusser Thompson and Elmyra Thomspon. This family is very well dcoumented.

However, Charles Frederick's paternity is a mystery. Cynthia may not have married and I don't think she obtained a birth certificate.

I have been to VA archives and Library in Richmond and looked through every record I could find.

Thanks for your interest but I think this is a dead end.

Ed
