I reviewed your work and I would say that you are right on. I needto study it further to see where our lines cross.
I am not sure that we can find who was before William Thompson (1375), but from what I have read about the McTavish line, we are only a couple generations away from Dun ArdRigh and the beginning.
I have gotten so hooked on this stuff that I have written two books on my Thompson line. The first was The Scot-Irish Experience which starts with William Thompson in Dumbarton and goes to Greene County Illinois in the 20th Century. The second one coming out in mid August is An Irish Mermaid Tale which concentrates on the immigration of James Thompson and Mary Towes and their landing in Philadelphia, ca. 1720. Forgive my own plug, but I am glad to see someone who has done his homework.
Let me study your link again and see where we meet and split.

Lewalter is buried in the Thompson cemetery in Barrow, Roodhouse Township, Greene County, Illinois.The cemetery, on the old Doyle farm is difficult to find as the access from the farm has been closed off.The entrance is just off of a knoll on the Barrow road approximately 200 yards West of Barrow.A small culvert leading onto a dirt road and into the present farm field is the entrance.Once across the culvert turn immediately to the right along side the road and through the gate at the bottom of the hill and left along the fence up the hill.
The cemetery is maintained by the Wells brothers, Russell lives directly across the road from the Baptist Church.
The cemetery is occupied by several generations of Thompson’s.There is a large family plot in the center where infants lay, most deceased in the 1850 - 70 period.
Lucinda’s stone is in a pile in the rear of the cemetery along with several other family members.Her stone shows her as the wife of L.S. Thompson.Lewalter’s stone was not found.
John’s stone is upright and near the center.John was a Revolutionary war Soldier, serving as a private in the Virginia Militia. He enlisted in 1781 for three months under Capt. Henry Pawling’s Company and re-enlisted for another six later that year serving in Colonel Thomas Fleming’s Regiment in the siege of Yorktown and the surrender of Cornwallis.He is shown on the Greene County pension list in 1833 at the age of 72.

Lucinda’s stone is in pieces, three of which were found.She is shown as the wife of L.S. Thompson, which is understandably in error, as Lewalter died 23 years before Lucinda’s stone was made.There are no records found to date that show that Lucinda remarried even though the three children were split among three local households.She was just 28 when he died.
John is shown as a member of A.G. Smith’s household in the 1850 Greene County census.This raises the possibility that Lewalter died between 1847, when Sarah was born, and 1850.

John and Mary were married 29 November 1867 at the home of Elias Doyle’s in Wrightsville, Illinois.Ceremony was performed by Justice of the Peace John Doyle. The origin of Elias Franklin’s name apparently is from a family friend, Elias Doyle.John worked on the farm of A.G. Smith according to the 1860 Greene County census. John’s brother, Oliver, worked on the John Doyle farm nearby.John married Mary Jane Smith, daughter of Allen G. Smith, a farmer in Wrights.
John died at the age of 29 and is buried in Hickory Grove Cemetery. Mary married Andrew Cage from Greene County in 1876.They are shown in the 1880 Greene County census under Cage with the James age 7 and Frank (Elias F.) age 12.Mary and Andrew Cage later had a son, Charles C. Cage.
James married Maggie Kerger of Wrightsville on March 9, 1892, witnessed by E.F. Thompson as shown on their marriage license.Maggie was born in Germany, the daughter of Conrad Kerger and Lizzie Wahl.James died May 12, 1899, and was buried at Hickory Grove Cemetery.He was 27 years old.Maggie later married William F. Beebe of Whitehall on August 9, 1901.
Wrightsville in the mid 1800's was a small township in Greene County existing chiefly through the elevator owned and operated by A. J. Wright on the St. Louis and Quincy Line..
The elevator was a 32X80 foot structure operated by a 12 horsepower engine.The silos holding 16,000 bushels of grain.A wagon building and repair shop was also in operation as was a blacksmith shop operated by A.L. Brannan.
