         Probate Roll #771


         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.

         John and Ebenezer Thompson descendants etc. not known to me.
