In Reply to: Re: Lafayette Thompson, Taney Co ,Mo. by Joe Snider of 27812

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 records from 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. Dolly Davis
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 Harrison Thompson. 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/Boone Co AR> Taney, Webster, Christian, Douglas & Greene Co MO.
