Hi, I have Thompson's in Oregon County MO. Do you know any of your John's childrens names? I have a Great Grand father James A. Thompson, born in TN and died in Oregon County MO. (Wilderness) He is my brick wall, I can't confirm any thing before 1862 with a marraige record to Catherine Freeman Burnham. He hd five sons, William Carroll, Thomas Jefferson( My Grandfather), John C., Charles F. and James Peter. William Carrol lived in Shannon County at Birchtree. He and his wife were teachers. Any information or help I would greatly appreciate.
