John Knox Thompson

John Knox Thompson                                     Nancy Elizabeth Love             

These photos were submitted by Clarke Thompson. The photos and information are  of my ggg grandparents who lived in Choctaw Co. MS.  John Knox (J.K.) Thompson immigrated from Ireland in the mid 1800's and Nancy Elizabeth Love's family (father was James Harvey "J.H." Love) migrated in the 1840's from Chester Co., SC.  I have much info about her family's past, however, J. K. is one of my brick walls.  The June 20, 2001 issue of the Choctaw Plaindealer noted his death in French Camps. He was a saddle and harness maker.  The picture I have of her is of not so good quality.
