The parents of Jackson P. Thompson are Joseph Thompson and Melvina Rawlins.
In the 1860 census of Decatur Twp., Lawrence Co., Jackson is listed as age 21, and so is a brother named Jefferson. May be twins or just born very close together.Other siblings are George age 23, Joseph age 20, Sarah W. age 16, William age 14 (my gggrandfather), Clarinda age 13, Henderson L. age 11, Philora age 9 and Laura Alice (question here on name) age 9/12.
