I'm looking for information on William H Thompson born 1806 who died 1878 in Washington Township. His parents were Matthew Thompson and Nancy Moore, both lived in Butler County Pennsylvania but were probably originally from Lancaster County Pennsylvania.

Nancy Moore's father was Aaron Moore born in Scotland in 1745 according to the history of Butler County PA. He lived in Franklin Township, Butler, PA and died there.

In the History of Butler, PA it says that all of Matthew Thompsons children left the county.

I've seen William H Thompson's death index at famliysearch and it lists his parents and says that he is married, but doesn't offer much more information. I suspect that the birth place is incorrect. It lists the same county he dies in, but he may have been born in Pennsylvania.
