An Ivey Thigpen can be found in the Washington County, Ga., census for 1840--1880.In 1850, Ivey (45) is listed with wife Sarah (38) and children William D.A. (20) and Eliza A. (8)

In 1860:Ivey (62),Sarah A. (45), Ann E. (16)
In 1870:Ivey (65),Sarah (64)
In 1880:John H. Thigpen (27) head
Ivey (80), listed as grandfather
Clora, listed as grandmother and wife
This suggests that Linton had a brother, John, with whom Ivey and Sarah resided in 1880.
I believe this Ivey to be the brother of my 3ggf, Dennis Thigpen. Dennis can be found in the Washington County 1850 census and the 186Madison County, Fl census.
I am working on establishing an accurate lineage of this line of the family and hope to hear from known descendants.
