Thompson, Merrell, Campbell Family

Hello,
I am hoping someone out there is searching the same family or can at least guide me in the right direction.
I am working on my mom's side of the family which is pretty hard since I know very little personally about the family.
My Nana Kay (grandmother) died when I was 10, my grandfather died when my mom was 6 so I never met him.

from what I have been able to find so far

My great Grandfather was
William Samuel Thompson born in Tioga County
27 October 1885
died 25 February 1947 Schulkyll County Pennsylvania
He married
Irene Allen of Dauphin County.

My great great Grandfather was
Robert Thompson
1845 - 1925 He was born in Ireland and died in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. He is buried at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.
He married
Hannah Adalaide Merrell
1862-1928
They had 8 children
5 girls three boys

I have no clue who Robert Thompson's parents are..I believe he came over from Ireland about 1880.

Hannah's parents were
Christopher Columbus Merrell born about 1825
died sometime before 1900
and
Mary Elizabeth Campbell
born about 1831 and died sometime after 1910.

It may sound funny but not only would I love to be able to have help tracing my family back further, I am hoping someone out there has a picture of my great grandfather, his family etc. Just so I can see them. I have never seen pictures of them, what my grandmother looked like as a child etc. It would just be nice to see if we have any of their traits.

Some of the other names in our family that I have been able to find
Blackwell, Zucker, Weiskopff, Willaimee, Root, Summerson, Kilpatrick.
Thank you so much.
And Merry Christmas
