Believe his grandparents may have been James Thompson and Elizabeth Stump. Lived in Tennessee.

Do you have a profile for him? Where have you searched? Familysearch.org is a good free site.

Thank you for responding so quickly Marion. I have not set up a profile yet as I am trying to get the correct information. I have used familysearch.org, Ancestery and various other sites as well.  One Member of Ancestery believes his father’s name was William. However I can’t find confirmation that James and Elizabeth had a son named William.
Thanks for the star Susan.

Katherine I will look on findmypast
Nothing on findmypast that I can connect at the moment.
Thanks for checking. Kj

Many times it is easier to find info once the initial profile for the individual is done. This also gives you a place to put any scraps of information. Sometimes even minor things can make a huge difference. Death, Location, spouse, siblings, occupation, most anything. This gives you a point to collect and share the info with others who may be able to find more.

In the case it is a duplicate, it would just get merged together.

John Thompson literally has hundreds of hits. Was HE in Tennessee? or was it the potential grandparents? Do they have a profile already existing?

I have added a profile for him and his wife Cynthia Green. It was just recently that I believe I identified her. In family history handed down she was simply identified as “Sintha”. Her husband was unknown.  Based on info found on Ancestery.com, I am listed her Husband as John Thompson.  Who knows could be another Thompson altogether.
