Of the daughters of Lewis & Mary Thompson:
*Beady married old Captn. William Ford, son of Preserved Ford.
Sallie very obviously married Thompson Barfield, son of Barrett
Fanny may have married a Stephens, but no record.
Milly (Amelia) married William H. Hays, son of Benjamin Hays. She is
buried beside William H. at their cemetery just off Highway #41
west of Lake View, near what is called Barfield's crossing.
(Wm. H. Hayes married 3 times. His 2nd wife was a Ford, his 3rd wife
an Elvington, with whom he had 5 daughters. One of these
daughters married Jasper Barfield, and resided near the
cemetery.) Milly/Emelia/Amelia's tombstone states she is the
daughter of the Rev. Lewis Thompson and his wife Mary.
*Nancy married Henry Rogers, brother of Dew Rogers. They resided
very near Dew, in the Gaddy's Mill area.
