I am interested in the Thompson side of this Allerton family.Samuel was quite sucessful in Chicago. He 1st married Pamilla Thompson, when she died, he married her sister Agnes. The Thompson sisters also had a brother CN Thompson (also went by name of Charles Nelson/Nels)CN was general mangager for Allertons in Boone Co. NE
CEDAR RAPIDS, NEBRASKA
R. H. ALLERTON, Prest. H. R. JOHNSTONE, Sec. & Treas. S. W. ALLERTON, Vice Prest. C. N. THOMPSON, Gen'l Mgr.
A. T. LAND AND LIVE STOCK CO.
SW Allerton also owned ranches in Wheeler Co NE, which I think his nephews AC and CN ran.
The brother in law Charles N. Thompson also had a son Charles N. The Older Charles was married to Caroline Putnam and they were originally from Monticello, Piatt Co. IL
I don't seem to be able to find any death or burial for the older Charles. in the 1900 Illinois census it lookes like Caroline has a 'D' in the column for divorced/widowed, but the writing is hard to determine if it is a D or a W.
