Hello Theresa, While doing a search for my great grandmother Effie Thompkins I noticed you sent an inquiry regarding her. Some of the information you posted sounded like it was related to her. I was curious how you were related to her? I'd love to hear from you. I have posted this message to your email address listed. Sim Thompkins was Effie's father. He was half Cherokee and half white (most likely Irish). Effie's mother was Odessa Briggs and was Cherokee. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com or through the email I sent you earlier.
