See you at the 2013 Family Reunion:
Fri. - Sun., - July  26 - 28, 2013
Lumberton, NC


Welcome to the Thompson-Ashley Family Webpage! We are the proud descendants of Jim & Mariah McNeil Thompson, and Robert & Sarah Thompson Ashley.

Much of what we have learned about our great forbearers of the Thompson-Ashley families has been transferred orally from one generation to the next, accumulating richness and sometimes losing key elements as the history passed to each succeeding generation. Though many of the stories are packaged in anecdotal form, they offer great insight about the beliefs, values, objectives, and difficulties experienced by our great ancestors.

However, unlike most African-American families, we have been blessed to have records and stories containing a great deal of factual information about the Thompson’s and Ashley’s. On this website you will be able to take a look at some of our ancestors of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generations.
