I'm looking for any information of Edith (Edy) Thompson who was born abt 1811. Edith married Jacob Mark/s in 1834 in Athens Co. Jacob's parents were William Mark and Mary Jones who were living in Vinton Co., Oh. at that time of Jacob and Edith's Marriage.
All census records that show Edith Thompson and Jacob Mark ...have stated that Edith's parents were born in Ireland...and that Edith was born in Ohio.
Jacob Mark (b. 1810 Va,) and Edith Thompson's children are Henry (b. 1836 Athens, Oh.), Andrew (b. 1838 Oh.), William (b. 1840 Oh.), Robert b. 1843 Oh., Eliza (b. 1846 Oh.), Sarah (b. 1849 Ia.), John (b. 1854 Ia.).
In son Andrew's Civil War papers...it mentions that he was born in Jefferson Co. ...and it also mentions Canton Twp. inspite of the census for that time saying that Jacob and Edith were in Vinton Co.
Jacob and Edith went to Iowa sometime between 1846 and 1849 where they show up on the 1850 census in Warren Co., Iowa.
I have been looking for the parents of Edith Thompson for a very long time...if you know of this line of Thompson's who were in these areas...please email me at NYKC@AOL.com Thank you Nikki
