Finley Thompson and family

My Grandfather, JTW “Trubie” Mitchell, collected pictures of older relatives. The picture above is identified as showing Finley or Findley Grayson Thompson, who was born in Giles County, Virginia circa 1878; his wife, Mary Morris Thompson (who was born circa 1877 in Bland County, Virginia, and was Trubie’s kinswoman); and Finley and Mary’s daughter, Nola. According to census records, Nola was born circa 1905, so the photograph was probably taken around 1906 or 1907.

The Thompson family lived in Mercer and Logan Counties in West Virginia in the 1910-1930 census records. (Special thanks to John Esca Mitchell for research assistance.)
