Notes for JOHN DAVID THOMPSON:
Maybe I mistyped in what I sent earlier, but I have James Brady THOMPSON born December 17, 1889 and his mother, Martha Arlivey HORTON born July 28, 1870. That would make her 19 when James Brady was born. As for the mystery of Alice Faye, I hope to put it to rest below. Dorothy Alice Elam and Alice Faye Elam are the same person. I believe I had this dicussion with either you or Dan Elam before. She was my grandmother, evidently somebody wrote her name down as they wanted it to be in a family bible somewhere. That is where the confusion started. However, all of her children knew her as Dorothy Alice. She went by Alice to her friends. Furhermore, John David and Dorothy Alice's tombstones read as follows (according to Jacque's survey of Littlehope) THOMPSON, John David, Dec. 15, 1913 - Oct. 26, 1975 [Son of James Brady and Hassie {Norwood} Thompson]; THOMPSON, Dorothy Alice, May 14, 1917 - Apr. 16, 1994 [daughter of Oliver]
