Hello Betty,
Glad to see someone else is working on this line, my Grandfather Walter Thigpin married Cora B. Cameron, his Father Ocar Aurion Thigpin married Eleanor Perry daug. of William S. Perry and Mary Jane Link, Ocar Father Arnold Thigpen and mother was Elizabeth A. _________ his second wife. Somewhere in my papers i have a picture of the four sons of Ocar viz: Olive, John, Caleb and Walter. I know very little on Caleb other than his grave site.

You're wonderful!! My lela would have been born around 1884 (her husband's age), She was from Waldo, Florida. She apparently divorced my grand father William Perry Edwards, and my mother, their child was raised by WP's mother, Louisa. In Lake city, FloridaThat's all I have except she supposedly went to Cleveland and died in the flu epidemic in 1918. I really hope you have the connection. There are land records of thigpins in Alachua County but I have no bridge to them. I'll look again for the names you mentioned. Please e mail yor info are we can establish a mail/phone link. Thanx a gazillion.... FJ

Betty I have been away from my Geneology for awhile and was surprised to find you and Ben Orton are way ahead of me. I would like to pursue this more closely. Can we establish direct lines??
