Two brothers, John and James Thompson arrived in Fredericksburg, Salt Creek Township, Wayne County, Ohio around 1815. They were the patriarchs of a large branch of the Thompson family. I have published the “core” of that family online at:
The branches of this family spread throughout Ohio, Illinois and Minnesota. Concentrations were in Ashland, Wayne and Defiance Counties of Ohio and Peoria, Illinois. They intermarried with the McFarland’s, Burge’s and the Dorland’s as laid forth in the recent book “The Dorland Enigma Solved”.
Both John and James Thompson list their place of birth as Delaware. I can trace them backwards to New Lisbon, Columbiana County, Ohio around 1803. From there backwards is a blank slate. I’m hoping to connect with a Thompson family who has a branch headed west towards Ohio, most likely from Pennsylvania, in and around the 1790’s. It was during this period that John Thompson married Hiley Dorland.
