Mary Ann RAY
Simmie Ann [STRONG?]
WARNING:  this Thomas P. THOMPSON is being confused with the Thomas P. THOMPSON who married Susan/Susie A. STRONG.  Despite the similarities, these are two different couples.  But the question then becomes whether the parents purported to being Simmie Ann's are really Susan's.  Or were Susan and Simmie Ann sisters?  (Which makes them both having married a Thomas P. THOMPSON all the more of a coincidence.)  Based on the census, our subject died before 1860, which means the other Thomas P. THOMPSON is likely the one who died in the Civil War in 1861 (or some other Thomas P. THOMPSON still it's a common name).  Our subject is said to have married three times, which, given the age difference between him and Simmie Ann is probably the case.
NOTICE:  a patrilineal descendant of our subject is participating in the THOMPSON Y-DNA Surname Project.  Anyone who suspects he descends from our subject on a direct male line can support that connection with a DNA test.
Husband:  Thomas P. THOMPSON
Birth:  1807/8, GA
Death:  1858-60
Occupation:  farmer
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  I1

Thomas is said to have middle name, Patterson, but I have found no primary record giving him a middle name.

Marriage-1:  aft. 1830
Wife-1:  Mary Ann RAY
Death:  bef. 1840
Marriage-2:  2 Sep 1840, Oglethorpe Co., GA
Wife-2:  Emila A. MARABLE
Other Spouse said to be:  m2. Mr. HOWARD
Father said to be:  William MARRABLE

WARNING:  there is no proof that the Thomas THOMPSON who married Emila A. MARABLE is our subject.  If Emila had another spouse, surnamed HOWARD, she must have divorced Thomas because she married Thomas as Emila MARABLE.

Wife-3:  Simeon / Sinean / Simmian / Simmie Ann / Annie / Ann [STRONG?]
Birth (according to censuses):  1825-30, GA
Birth said to be:  14 Oct 1828 or 1829, Clarke Co., GA
Death said to be:  31 Oct 1911, Campti, Nachitoches Par. LA
Occupation:  homemaker
Other Spouse:  m2. 7 Jan 1869, Nachitoches Par., LA, William Major FRIDAY

Father said to be:  Charles Robert STRONG (1786-1845)
Mother said to be:  Elizabeth MARABLE / MAREABLE (1795- )

Children with Mary Ann RAY:
If Thomas had any surviving children with his first wife, he apparently didn't keep them with him.
Children with Emila Ann MARABLE said to be:
  1.  W. T. THOMPSON, b. 8 May 1841; d. 20 Jul 1841
  2.  Mary Frances THOMPSON, b. 20 Oct 1842, Clarke(?) Co., GA; d. ca. 1880

If such a daughter exists, I certainly cannot find her in the 1850 census.

________ Lcinda?  1 F W       Louisiana
Neither Clara Mollin THOMPSON nor "Dunice" THOMPSON were living with Annie in the 1860 census.  Given that fact and the fact that Mollin is listed after James, even though she is older than James, indicates she and Dunice are not Annie's children.  This period ca. 1870 was the aftermath of the Civil War, and there were many orphaned children taken in by their kin, so I believe this to be such a case.  Lucinda should be surnamed FRIDAY because she is apparently the first child born to William & Annie together (she is surnamed FRIDAY in the 1880 census).

So much of this conflicts with primary records, it's difficult to rely on anything here.
