Re: Seceder Graveyard near Darlington -- Thompson burials

In Reply to: Seceder Graveyard near Darlington -- Thompson burials by Jack Brode of 1471

My great grandfather was Charles Lewis Thompson (b: 1851 d:1923). He was one of 11 children, his parents were William and Anne Staley Thompson.

William was married twice and fathered 22 children, 11 to his first wife and 11 to Anne who was quite a bit younger than her was (I don't know who William's first wife was, but I assume she died & Anne may have helped raise some of his children by wife #1). Their first child was William S. Thompson born in Westmorland County,PA on Nov.21, 1842 and was only a baby when they moved to Ohio.

William & Anne were one of the old pioneer citizens to settle in Newburg, Ohio (Now Toronto, Ohio) and had purchased the property that the opera house now stands. William was also a black smith by trade.

Children by Anne:

William S. Thomspon - was a Civil War veteren/married Anna L. Kelly at Two Ridge Church in abt. 1860
Daughter's were Mrs. William Cooke, Mrs. Frank Risher, son Alfred Thompson (there may have been more children)

Joseph Miller Thompson b:Aug.24, 1849 in Butler, PA died 1925 - married Mary Ellen Rodgers Dec. 19, 1871 - children: Mrs. Joseph Shillinger and Frank Thompson. Joe worked for the John Fancy Co. store for 40 years.

George Thompson - Lived in Bradford, PA
Alexander Thompson - Lived in Monessen, PA
Charles Lewis Thompson

There wer 6 more children but I don't know anymore names although 2 girls.

Charles (Charlie) Thompson married Margaret Baker born 1860 in East Liverpool, Ohio. They lived in
Island Creek, Ohio (Jefferson County).

Could there possibly be a connection here? Possibly by the first wife or brother of the first William?

If you know anything or find out anything please let me know.
