Looking for further information on the families of Solomon Thompson b abt 1799 NC m. Rachel Dalton, and his son Silas Thompson b abt 1815 Burke Co NC m. Mahalla Sarah "Haily" Medford.
Solomon may have been the son of Isaac Thompson Sr b 1755 VA (lived in Burke Co NC from Rev War until death in 1839), and possibly the brother of my ggg grandfather Joseph Thompson b abt 1797 Burke Co NC.
Solomon Thompson was living near Joseph & Isaac Sr in the 1820 and 1830 Burke Co NC census. I can't find him in 1840, but son Silas Thompson was living in Burke that year, young married couple with three daughters. In 1850 Solomon Thompson and his wife Rachel & family were listed in the Rutherford Co NC census, and Silas & family were listed in McDowell Co NC. In 1860 Silas Thompson and Solomon Thompson were living next door to each other in Rutherford Co NC. In 1870 Silas' widow & children were still listed in Rutherford Co NC.
Children of Solomon Thompson & Rachel Dalton as per 1850 and 1860 census were:
Silas Thompson b abt 1815 Burke NC m Mahalla Medford
Elizabeth Eliza Thompson b abt 1830 NC
Martha Ann Thompson b abt 1838
James Thompson b abt 1844
(clearly there were probably more children; Martha & James possibly grandchildren?)
Children of Silas Thompson & Mahalla Medford as per 1850-1870 census were:
Malinda Thompson b abt 1834
Rachel Thompson b abt 1836
John W Thompson b abt 1839
Cinda Thompson b abt 1841
Hapy/Hazy/Haly Thompson (f) b abt 1842
Asa Thompson b abt 1843
Silas Green Thompson b abt 1844
