Our Scottish Thompson Ancestors - Page 1

Presented by Jerry C. (J.C.) Thompson

J.C. Thompson has done extensive research on the Thompson Family and believes that the Amos Thompson family can be included in an extended family tree going back to the 1400's in Scotland. We cannot confirm this lineage at this time, but report on it, as is, and hope that someone will be able to confirm each generation. Amos Thompson's direct ancestors are highlighted in yellow.
