May I please take advantage of your expertise on the church records?
My wife is descended from a Mary Ann Thompson, who according to my research was the
daughter of Burgess Thompson and Anna Coope (sp?) whom I believe were married in the
church on or about 20 October 1806. They later moved, I believe, to Mercer County, PA and
then Noble County, IN, where they are buried. If you have those records, can you confirm
the marriage information and that Mary Ann was their daughter? (Mary Ann later married a
Lyman Thompson who may have been a 1st cousin, thus the same last name. I believe Lyman
and Mary Ann were married in Mercer County, PA but I don't know where Lyman was from
originally. If the Thompson family and kin traveled together from NY to PA, perhaps Lyman
was also a member of the church and was baptized there?)
Also, is there any record of who the parents of Burgess and Anna were, along with any
children in addition to Mary Ann?
I much appreciate any help you can provide, even if it is just steering me another
