The bulk of these Thompson families lived at Lost Creek township, Newton county, Missouri and are found there on the 1850 U.S. Census. That much is clear and documented.

What isn't completely clear is if they were all the children of one Thompson father or two brothers. It is thought they may be the children of John Leonard Thompson born in VA circa 1760 to John Thompson and Lady Spotswood, widow of Alexander Spotswood. Until her marriage she was known as Anne Butler Brayne.

I am looking for anyone with information and or family connections to:
Alexander Thompson born VA 1812
John C. Thompson born VA 1814
James Thompson born KY 1818
Mercer Thompson born KY 1821
Joseph Thompson born KY 1823
Mary Thompson born KY 1826
Frances Thompson born MO 1833

Most of these children lived near Lost Creek. Mary married Washington P. Walker and they moved to Benton county, Arkansas which isn't far from Newton county, MO.

By 1852, the Thompson and Walker families were traveling overland on the Oregon trail. Washington Walker was the captain of the wagon train, which appears to be a rather large one. It arrived in Oregon Sept.about Sept.4th of 1852. I show the following people on that train....

Can you trace your ancestors to any of these early pioneers? If so, please post here. Many of them were early day homesteaders around Linn county, Oregon; Clackamus county; Wasco county, etc. Many moved up into the Whitebird, Idaho area and may not even realize they are related.
