First, I have sent this query to both Wyoming and Gensee County Lists,
because when my Thompsons arrived in 1824, they came to what was then
Genesee County. (Wyoming County created from Genesee in 1841).
If the Emily Thompson sketched below fits into your family, I would very
much like to hear from you.
My ancestor, Emily Thompson, married Russell Warren, probably about 1826 or
1827 in Wyoming County, New York (then Genesee).
Beer's History of Wyoming County, page 224, states, "Emily Thompson,
afterward Mrs. Russell Warren, was also a native of Washington County, [New
York]. She came to Wyoming County in 1824, traveling with an ox team and
consuming twenty-two days in the journey. She died March 21st, 1876..."
I "assume" she came with her parents, as Russell did not come until 1826,
acccording to the source above.
The only source I have listing Emily's parents' names is the book, A
Genealogy of Descendants of John Thomson of Plymouth, Mass. published in
1890 by Charles Hutchinson Thompson. Her parents are listed as Nathan
Thompson and Phebe Ellis (?) Blowers Thompson along with siblings: Cyrus,
Abigail, Sylvia, Caroline who married Daniel Heath 25 Aug 1831 and later
moved to Ronald, Ionia County, Michigan, William, Edwin, Polly, and Emily.
Emily Thompson Warren is buried in the Organeville Center Cemetery,
Orangeville Twp., Wyoming County, New York, next to two sons, George and
Edwin, who died young.
I think that Emily's father, Nathan THOMPSON, was a brother to Phebe
Thompson RUGGLES (who married Dennison Ruggles; they lived at Hampton,
Washington County, NY) and Bela THOMPSON (whose wife was Diadamia Kellogg;
they too lived at Hampton, but later moved to Covington. He died 8 March
1863 at Perry Center, according to his obituary--Wyoming County Mirror).
What happened to Nathan Thompson and his wife Phebe Blowers Thompson and
Thank you for any help.
Sincerely, Patricia Boddy Tharp
