Very, Very interesting.My name is Toi Thompkins Bowie.This is what I know of my family. My father's name is Darnell Thompkins, his mother's name was Nola Johnston from McCormick (or Johnston), South Carolina.Nola (Pam Pam is what we called her) married a Douglas Thompkins, also from McCormick, South Carolina.
They later moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where together they had two daughters (Ludella and Bernell) and six sons (Douglas, Benjamin, Leroy, Arthur, my father Darnell and another son whom's name I can not remember).My father,uncles and aunts still live in Pittsburgh and Aliquippa, PA.My aunts fondly remember family from McCormick from attending family reunions when they were younger.
I'm 32 years old and now live in North Augusta, South Carolina.I have yet to meet any of my family - and I am looking forward to meeting them before I lose all contact.My grandfather is deceased, in fact - I never did know him.My grandmother, Pam Pam Johnston is also deceased.My Aunts are the only ones that remember names.
If you get this post, and any of these names sound familiar - please email me back.I am so looking forward to researching my family history.
