Thompson, Krenz, Ray, Bray, and DeShazo Family History

Updated September 5, 2000

Hi and Welcome;
This website has the following names:

Arledge, Allred, Aldridge, Baker, Betts, BRAY, Campbell, Card, Cline, Crutcher, Davis, DESHAZO, Deutsch, Doe, Dowd, Edwards, Frazier, Grace, Hughes, Lane, Lowe, Mann, McNutt, Moser, Mount, Neese, Nicholson, Patterson, Peters, Philips, RAY, Rice, Riegel, Rightsman, Swanlund, Sawl, Siler, Smith, Stover, Teel, Tuftee, THOMPSON, Siler, Stinson, Sullivan, Varley, Walters, Ward, Womble, and many others.

Please remember that I have not checked every linkage in this genealogy report. It will take a lifetime to do that successfully. I adopt the entirely human perspective that we all make mistakes. There will be mistakes on this web page. If I knew WHERE, the mistakes would not be a problem. ;-) Instead, use this information as a jumping off point for your own family research.

I must say that I am grateful for the Librarians and Volunteers at Clayton Genealogical Library in Texas. They are a wonderful group of people and extremely helpful. I am also grateful to Pam Wilson and her bunch of researchers who contributed to the Arledge Family History project! The Thompsons have intermarried with branches of this family at least 3 times. Where Arledges are, there are Thompsons. I have learned so much from Pam. She has always been extremely helpful.

I hope that you find this web site useful in your genealogical endeavers.

At all times this web site is *under development* with more names and better graphics. Please check back.
