Is this Thompson the same as Samuel Thompson Bennett?? Asa Wiser was married to Samuel's sister Anna.

Notes from Tom Adams for Herman Wiser:
Herman (Harmon?) died in a barn fire. The Meadville Courier on 7 Mar 1837 reported, "We regret to learn that the barn of Mr. Thompson Bennett, of North Shenango, in this county, was destroyed by fire on Thursday or Friday of the week before last, and painful to relate, his own child and one of Mr. Asa Wiser's, a neighbor, one four and the other five years of age, perished in the flames! It is thought that fire was taken into the barn by the children, unnoticed by the family, which communicated the combustible materials and enveloped them in flames before they could be rescued." Zelma McCullough, had a copy of a poem "written by Asa G. Wiser on the death of his son Herman who was burned to death."
