States: Maine: Franklin
I don't know of any connection with your Rufus Thompson. Based on the census records (I see that he is in Corinna in 1850 and Ripley in 1880), he was born around 1806-1807. 'My' Rufus Thompson did not marry until 1813. I do think my Rufus Thompson was connected with Thompson family in New Portland, Somerset County, but I still do not have a definite link. I think if you can find your Rufus in the 1870 census in Maine, it might list the town where he was born (at least the 1870 census for Aroostook county listed town of birth). Sorry that I do not have anything else for you.
