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
