THE FAMILY OF JOHN THOMSON/THOMPSON

The Thompson genealogy begins with pioneer John Thomson. John emigrated from County Antrim, Northern Ireland, around 1730 and died in Thompsontown, Juniata County, PA. in 1779. He had 3 wives and 13 children.

Books were published in 1887, 1917 and 1994 on the Thompson genealogy. They are now out of print. To see where you might read one, click here: THOMPSON BOOK
