Greetings from Illinois
« on: October 20, 2018, 11:48:58 AM »
Greetings from Illinois. I was at the Scottish Games in Chesterfield, Missouri last month and had a ball. My Thompson's migrated from Pennsylvania to Illinois in 1860.  Samuel Thompson and his wife Hannah Hamilton lived in Greene County, Pennsylvania in 1830.

My great-great grandfather, John Thompson, served in the Civil War. He was with the Illinois 106th Infantry and fought at the siege of Vicksburg.

I am not sure about other Thompson's, but my branch is a competitive bunch and like to fight.
