Acknowledgments In My Research of Genealogy
Much Thanks To All Who Helped Me Locate So Much Information About Mobile, Clarke, Wilcox And Choctaw Counties in Alabama. I had the names correct, but so much was missing, like dates, places of birth, marriage and death, surnames and so on. I am forever greatful to you all.
Thanks to the Mobile County Probate Court, and their staff in records, (you know who I mean, Ms. Silas Alabama), family members I have spoken with over the years, along with the most recent family members I have met online. A special thanks to Mom, Dad, Bruce, Douglas, James, Lois, L.R. Davis, Ruby, Willei (Rest In Peace), Willie, Augustine, Annie Belle, Annie Lee, Annie Ruth, Elijah, Lindsey, Johnny, Leathea, Cynthia, Jacqueline, Renee, Mattie (Rest In Peace), Flossie (Rest In Peace), Luberta, Eugene, Delores, Paul (Rest In Peace), Barbara (Rest In Peace), Regina (Rest In Peace), Peggy, Barbara Jean, Patricia, Minnie, Nancy, and Mary just to name a few. Last but not least, I am so greatful to have talked with Mr. Eddie Hubbard, (Plateau/Magazine Point) who shed some light on some things I would have never known. May he forever rest in peace. Without you, I would be just as lost as can be. Thank you all so much.

Welcome to our family tree!

Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart.

On this page I've provided a little information about who I am searching for in this research. Most of this information was probably obtained from talking to living relatives and from researching public records. In the course of doing this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible!

This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.

Photo of Ada Thompson-Harper-Singleton, my great-grandmother. Ada was born in 1867, in Bladen Springs, Choctaw County, Alabama, to Francis and Lewis Thompson. Her parents were of the Black Warrior Tribe, who lived along the Black Warrior River in Northern Alabama. They moved along the river during the slave years, and settled in Choctaw County. Ada first married a man with the surname Harper, but we don't know who he was, or when this took place. We only know she had a daughter and a son from this marriage. The sons' name is beleive to have been Winston Harper, but the daughter died at a young age. Ada later ended up in Chickasaw, Mobile County, Alabama. She soon met Frank Singleton, my great-grandfather, and they were married on March 13, 1907. They had five children together, and divorced. Ada later moved to Oak Hill, Alabama, and worked as a nurse for a Doctor, who was battling fever which broke out, killing a lot of people. Ada soon caught the fever, and passed away in Oak Hill, in the 1920s. We don't know where she is buried, but it is in Oak Hill. Some of her children stayed on in Oak Hill for a while, having families, but later, they all moved back to Plateau and Prichard, Alabama. Frank Singleton, Sr., later married Katie Freeman, on December 31, 1913.
