I am just starting to trace my genealogy. My dad's side of the family is quite a mystery as my grandfather ran away as a teen. I've been able to trace my roots back to my ggggreat grandpa, Patric or Patrick Thompson. He was born in Tazewell County, VA, I am not sure of the year, but I am guessing early 1800s. I know he had a son James William Thompson who was born in Grundy County, MO abt 1839. Any information anyone might have would be great!
