Message Board Post:

My husband's Thompson family has been associated with this Richardson family since the 1920s around Spavinaw and Strang, Mayes county, OK. My in-laws, Bill and Ola (Kay) Thompson ran around with Mickey Mantle's mother, Lovell and her husband, Mutt Mantle. Ola used to tell how she used to 'change Mickey's diaper when he was small'. I have also worked on the Richardson family as pertaining to the ancestors of a friend's husband's ancestral line. I can share the following info with any by gedcom if you desire it,but I have included it in the text of this reply. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Sincerely, Eddene Hightower Thompson
