Looking for the parents of my great great grandfather, Elisha F. Thompson, of the Cherokee Co, NC area. His second wife was Lucretia Mounce. He appears in the census of McMinn TN 1870, then between then and 1880, while in the Cherokee NC area, he leaves his first family, wife Amanda and children James (Bud) and Sarah; marries Lucretia, has a baby, then for some unknown reason (to us now, anyway) fled in the night for the Adair-Wayne CO KY area. My grandmother said that the law from NC did come looking for them and stayed awhile in KY looking, but finally left. Would love to know parents names, and if anybody has an idea as to why they left North Carolina.
