Thompson-Kirkpatrick-Wyatt Families

For this section on one of my sons-in-law's ancestors, I began with a picture that he had on his wall of a sketchy family tree going back many, many generations to the 11th century in Scotland & England (see it here). I decided to see what I could find out about his ancestors, at least back to their immigrations to North America. Those who have immigrated here are highlighted. In the Generation numbering, I have begun with {0} so that the generations would align with my other sections.
