Wedding Wednesday: William and Revy Thompson

kst1969   November 17, 2010   Comments Off on Wedding Wednesday: William and Revy Thompson

I had been told by family members that my 3rd Great Grandmother was Arreve Waggonner.  I had not found any confirmation of this until a couple of weeks ago.  I found an online family tree on Ancestry that had Arreve Waggonner Cunningham married to William Thompson.  I did the research and finally found the documentation to verify the connections!  I quite a bit of genealogy happy dancing when I found those records!  I found her marriage certificate to John W Cunningham and the 1860 Census record with them on it, then I found the marriage license of Arriva Cunningham to William A Thompson followed by the 1880 census with them as a married couple with their children!!
