How to contact me.

The family history of Andrew Thompson Sr., who settled in the Walker Valley of current day Bland County, Virginia about 1782.  His descendants lived in the area for three generations before branching out south and west.  Almost all Thompsons in Wythe County, Virginia between 1810 to 1850 are related to Andrew.

This site is an electronic version of a book privately published in 1994, and no longer in print.   It contains details about the first three generations.  Chapters have been updated with current research, as listed below.
