Re: Slave descendants of the Cabell family (Derek)

Here is more information on the (black)Thompson family from Massies Mill, Nelson, Virginia

1880 United States Federal Census about Fannie Thompson

Name: Fannie Thompson
Home in 1880: Massies, Nelson, Virginia
Age: 16
Estimated birth year: abt 1864
Birthplace: Virginia
Father's birthplace: Virginia
Mother's birthplace: Virginia
Neighbors: View others on page
Occupation: Servant
Marital Status: Single
Race: Black

Household Members: Name Age
Maria C. Massie 66
Sallie Thompson 51 (slave/servant)
Elva Madison 57 (slave/servant)
Fannie Thompson 16 (slave/servant)

Maria C Massie, is actually Maria Catherine Dodd Effinger. She was married to William Massie, son of Thomas Massie and Sallie Cocke.
In the words of Desi Arnez form the Lucy Ball T.V, Show of the 70's.... "I've got some splaining to do"

So, Sallie Cocke... let's see... she was the 2nd great grand daughter of Bowler Cocke who was a great uncle of John Hartwell Cocke, who slaves were inherited into the Cabell family.

Now Bowler's Wife was Sarah Fleming, who's family inherited the slaves of our Fleming cousins, begining with Tarlton "Slave" Fleming.

Now Sallie Thompson (slave) was the wife of Isaac "slave" Thompson. She was the mother of Fannie Thompson (shown here).

Okay!... you got that?

Now it appears that you, cousin Janine, are attached to this particular branch of the Thompsons'
-------------------------------------------
Each slave branch of the Thompson family were sold, or inherted by different slave owning families. Now, the reason I say this, is that I believe this is your direct line, because Elva "slave" Madison, also a slave of Maria Catherine Effinger Massie is living with these particular Thompson slaves. And you mentioned you were kin to the Madison family, that I've yet to tace... but give me time!

The other branches of Thompsons' are the lines from Isaac "Slave" Thompson, birth father of this Fannie Thompson, and the Thomas Thompson line.

Thomas Thompson, born in 1842, married Ann Maria. Their son George H. Thompson married a woman named Paulina. They had many children, which probably are the predominent line of black Thompsons' in Nelson County, specifically Lovingston, and Massies Mill.

Is this enough detailed info for ya?.... but wait!.. I have lots more.

Just contact me, and I'll hook you up... ah-ight?
