Lydia Thompson

#895
7th great grandmother of Kristina Hewitt, Brandon Gilby, Tiffany Hewitt, and Sandra Foster

So far, the parentage of Lydia Thompson is unknown to me.  I would be most interested in even a theory as to who her parents might be.  She was apparently born about 1740 in Middletown, Connecticut, USA

Many people seem to have attached the birth record for Lydia Lee, daughter of Stephen and Abigail born 20 Apr 1740 in Lyme, CT.  This person was born Lydia Lee, whereas the person we want was born Lydia Thompson.

Lydia Thompson married Hezekiah Lee.

Lydia supposedly died about 1777.  If this is true then her young children must have been raised by someone else....

I believe that she would have had a maternal haplogroup H6a1.  This is based on the results of 2 descendants tested both thru her daughter Lydia Lee.

The children of Hezekiah Lee and Lydia Thompson include:


William Ashbill Lee

Sarah Lee

Daniel Lee

Roxanna Lee

Hezekiah Lee
