I've read that Uncle Jimmy Thompson was born in Tennessee, then his family moved to Texas for a while when he was young. Later, they moved back to Tennessee. Uncle Jimmy moved to Bonham, Texas as an adult, later moving back to Tennessee. Does anybody know what Texas town, or what region of Texas he first moved to with his parents?

I have read that he would go to Texas to play in contests and go back to Tennessee.

The most detailed information I've found about Uncle Jimmy was a 1975 article by Charles Wolfe and Bill Harrison. If you haven't already seen it, you can download it here:
It isn't specific about where the family lived in Texas. Maybe this would be a good research project for you, Daniel!
