Looking for anyone tracing or researching the surname Thompson in Oxford County and/or the Gorham, NH, area.

The Rumford, Maine, paper on 23 June 1917 ran the following article: "Edwin D. Thompson, one of the prominent cilizens of Rumford and one of the progressive farmers, was killed early Monday morning, while cutting a telephone wire from a pole near his home in East Rumford." Edwin D. Thompson was my great uncle.
