|This photo is labeled Floyd Thompson. It has been assumed that one of these |
young men is Floyd. However, if not, could this be his sons Clarence and Bowie?
|At the Hairston home in Levelview. Floyd is behind the horses. My great-grandfather Phillip Hairston is standing next to grandchildren Buster Bryan and DeRay Bryan. The age of the children gives the photo a date of about 1909 or 1910.|

The house had burned to the ground and their landlord built them another home. Floyd continued to farm and the 1930 census places him in Baylor County. Two more children were added to the family. It appears that the Thompson family remained in Baylor County through most of the thirties; however, the census record and a newspaper article place Floyd, Ora, and their two youngest in Wilson, Lynn County, Texas in 1940.
