My Family

My Family History includes many families in Arkansas among the earliest settlers of the state.

My Grandparents

My Great-Grandparents

My 2nd Great-Grandparents

I was lucky enough to have my grandparents with me for a good portion of my life.  All of my grandparents were alive until I was at least a junior in high school.  My last surviving grandparent, my paternal grandmother, Gwen (Stout) Thompson, died in 2006.

I was also lucky enough to know many of my great-grandparents for a significant portion of my life.  Two of my great-grandparents were living until I was a senior in high school.

I didn’t actually meet any of my 2nd great-grandparents but I have discovered some sense of their personalities and their life struggles and triumphs through the stories of my great-grandparents and my grandparents about their parents and grandparents.
