Thompson Genealogy Reunions and Arlington Iowa

Genealogy, History and Reunion data regarding the offspring and collaterial surnames related to Zachariah Caleb 1 and Priscillia Albaugh Thompson of the Brush Creek/Arlington area of Fairfield Twp, Fayette Co, Iowa. This line of the Thompson's came out of Scotland, and were with the Scotch-Irish migration to America in the early/mid 1700's. They settled in Harford (Baltimore) Co, Maryland with later migrations going both the southern route and northern route. My ggggGrandparents, Andrew and Eliz Denbow Thompson, moved through Penn to Carroll (Harrison) Co, Ohio, in about 1817 as the Louisana Purchased opened up for settlement. Andrew's grandson's Morris J. and Samuel explored Fayette Co, Iowa, in 1851/52, when this area of Iowa opened to more settlement. Brothers Morris J., Samuel and William, along with bro-in-law John Capper and Saltsgiver relatives moved the families to pioneer Fairfield Twp, Fayette Co, Iowa, in 1853/54, becoming major family units in the Brush Creek/Arlington, Wadena, Elgin, West Union, Fayette area. By the mid 1870's all of the children and many relatives of Zachariah Caleb 1 and Priscillia Albaugh Thompson had settled Fayette Co, Iowa. The subfolders and albums in this folder are collections of their histories. Descendent trees and reports are on web pages and also available to researchers. iowaz@swbell.net or iowaz@hotmail.com

Thompson Scrapbook 1954
The Thompson Scrapbook is a running commentary of Blanche Horton's correspondence, notes, travels and attempt to put together the history of the Thompson family of Arlington (Moetown, Brush Creek), Fairfield Twp, Fayette Co, Iowa. Blanche's notes were the basis for Tommie Thompson's information on the Zach Caleb line, in his 1960/1970 Thompson History. In 2005-2007, I digitalized the scrapbook and organized the pics by Blanche's original page numbers, which are uploaded into albums in this folder. I also have gone through every page/note of her work and blended it into my own information posted in my Thompson Family Tree Maker file. This informaiton is available so there is not major need to spend the time duplicating effort. iowaz@hotmail.com

Thompson Genealogy 1979 Edition
Aug 20, 2007

Thompson Genealogy 1979 Edition is the second printing of Tommie Thompson's work on the Thomas Thomp ...more

son line out of Harford Co, Maryland. His first printing was the 1961 Edition. The pics follow the sequence of the pages of the book, with some file names showing major topics sequences. Much of the material in this book regarding the Zach Caleb Thompson line of Fayette Co, Iowa, was taken from Blanche Horton's scrapbook, which I will eventially upload. However, my FTM files contain most of both Tommie Thompson and Blanche Horton's material so if working on Thompson genealogy, one needs to start with a PDF copy of my Thompson file. iowaz@swbell.net or iowaz@hotmail.com

Thompson Genealogy 1962 Edition

The material concerning the Zach Caleb 1 Thompson line of Fayette Co, Iowa, in the 1962 (1st Edition ...more

) of the Thompson Genealogy is based on the 1940-1950+ collection of mateiral in Blanche Horton's Thompson Scrapbooks (also uploaded). The 1979 edition contains minimal updates. The pics in the 1962 edition are on better paper thus took better digitals. If starting on Thompson Genealogy BZ's files will be the place to start as many additions and errors to Blanche's and Tommie's work have been condensed/added as they did not fully understand Fay.Co.IA or have modern resources. iowaz@hotmail.com
