red mail Thompson Ecclefechan
Am seaching for John Bell Thompson (or Thomson ?) who was married to Sarah ??? (could be Bell or Stewart). They had at least one son born in the Ecclefechan area, John Bell Thompson (Junior) born in 1828. Possible a second child, Adam or Jennie, was also born there before the family moved to Nova Scotia in 1834. They had a child, Agnes Thompson, while at sea. Agnes is my great grandmother. Agnes married David Hollingsworth in Colchester County, Nova Scotia. She dies in 1889 in Massachusettes. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
