I am in contact with a descendent of Timothy Lafayette Thompson b abt 1847 Bradley Co TN, son of Isaac Avery Thompson and Jerusha "Polly" Goodwin.He married Sarah Ann Bowen Jan 1870 Taney Co MO. He is in census recordsfrom 1870-1930 in Taney Co MO. 1860 he is listed with his parents in Bradley Co TN. Lafayette apparently fought for both the Union Army (age 17) according to records and then switched allegiance and fought for the Confederacy--this according to his tombstone.He died in 1934 and is buried at the Mountain Grove Cemetary near Branson MO.
The children of Lafayette and Sarah Ann (all born Taney Co MO) are:
William Thompson b 1871 Tennessee C Thompson b 1875 m James Maddux Martha Thompson b 1878 m. John McMillon James N Thompson b 1878, died young? Mary F Thompson b 1880 m Sam Branson Henry H Thompson b 1882 m Birdie Hensley Julia B Thompson b 1884 m George Hensley Benjamin Harrison Thompson b 1889 m. DollyDavis Clara Harrison Thompson b 1889 m William Combs John E Thompson b 1892 died??
I got this info from Rebecca Jenks, who is a descendent of Benjamin HarrisonThompson.I am related to another branch of the family; Lafayette was nephew of my gg grandmother Sarah Thompson b 1835 TN who married James Monroe Whitecotton.
Have tons of info on the rest of the family and it was and probably still is HUGE.Came from NC to Roane, then Bradley Co TN >Carroll/BooneCo AR> Taney, Webster, Christian, Douglas & Greene Co MO.
