Hi Chuck, I found the Joseph Thompson passage by using HeritageQuest online and searching their books. The search engine is frustrating, but it's the most amazing resource. I have located many wonderful tidbits using it.
I don't have anything good on Beulah. The census records on which she appears have been inconclusive regarding her birth date. I've only just begun researching Thompsons, so perhaps I'll be able to contribute something better soon. Do you know anything about her?
Thanks for the info on the postmasters of Lacey Creek. Where did you find that?
I can't seem to find your email address, so if you still have mine, please drop me a line. Would love to catch up.
