Kenneth C. Thomson Jr. has dedicated the majority of his life to studying and preserving local history. He received the Citizen of the Year award from Sumner County Publications on Friday in Gallatin, Tennessee.
As a freelance historian and genealogist, Thomson has been the go-to source for everything and everybody related to Sumner County history with the ability to answer off the top of his head specific questions, citing names and dates. Late state historian Walter Durham once said that Thomson knows more about “Sumner County people than anybody.”
