Due to research by Judy Cassidy on the Dorland family line, have reason to believe that "Reese" Thompson is possibly the same person as "Reason" Thompson. Reason was the son on John Thompson and Hiley Dorland. Seems to be no doubt in Judy Cassidy's mind that they are one in the same. Publishing of the book based on Judy Cassidy's research is pending. Estimated 2004. Appears "Reese" died around 1858-1859 but not confirmed. Peoria 1880 census card for 1880 shows Elizabeth Criswell Thompson Tracy with step daughter Alice B Thompson still at home age 22. Makes her born in 1858. Elizabeth Thompson married Elijah Tracy in 1859.
