Hi again Scott, I have a few questions?In the Civil War record for Andrew Wesley Thompson, it states that he married his first wife Esther Tickner on May 10, 1870 in Glencoe, MN. So she had to have been born before 1870.I actually think she may have been a sister to Ezra instead of his daughter. I also shown Ezra and Esther in the 1850 census at the same residence in Stark Co., IL.He is 43 ans she is 41.No one else is listed on that census with them and Ezra is listed as a farmer.Nothing for her.Either that or she was Ezra's first wife.I am not positive at this point.At age 52, Ezra is married to Sarah Maria Fadden and living in Glencoe.Their first two children were born in MN and the rest were born in CA. It also states he was born "at the head of Lake Champlain on the Canada side of NY."Have you got any of this information?He was born on Dec 16, 1844.
