I am looking for descendants of Leroy Thompson (1908-1967) or those of his sister Eleanor M. Thompson.I have a copy of the Civil War pension papers of their maternal grandfather, Gideon H. Hutchinson and would like to pass it on to his relations. Gideon's trials in life are described in the 50-75 pages of the pension files.
Gideon H. Hutchinson m. Ellinore Ewing Long 7 Feb. 1870 Their only child Maude Hutchinson b. 9 Aug. 1878 m. J. Harry Thompson Their children were Leroy b. 1908 and Eleanor b. abt 1900. I believe Leroy's wife may have been Eleanor Hurley.
I will send the papers to the first person who can show that they are related.The papers are too numerous to scan or copy.My husband's Gideon Hutchinson is not this one.
