I am researching my grandmother's family and am having a difficult time in
linking here to any of the Delaware Co. Thompsons. Thought maybe I can get
This is what I have gotten so far from family bible and the census records
John O. Thompson (1832-?) married Elizabeth Banks (1829-?) 11/21/1860 in
Bloomville. Her parents are possibly John Banks (~1794-after1870) and Mary
(~1803- after 1870) (were in the same household in the 1870 census).
1. Inez circa 1862-?
2. John G. Thompson 1868 his children:
Earl (dentist, faculty Harvard Dental School)
Isabella married to a Kerr and lived in south Kortright. I do have a list
of Earl's children and grandchildren, Isabella never had children.
3. George Banks Thompson (1872-1936) married Mary Ella Carter (1879-1932)
possibly from Kingston area. George and Mary Ella are buried in Bloomville
Cemetary. Mary Ella is related somehow to Clarence Carter as per my
grandmother's address book.
their 2 children:
Ethel Carter Thompson (1902-1983) married Foster Noel Van Ness (1902-1983)
descended from Simon VN (1666-before1733) and Hester Delamater (I have
extensive records for this Van Ness line if that helps anyone)
Ruby Thompson (?1904-1999) married George Flavin
Thanks for any help!
