....Zachariah Thompson and Priscilla Albaugh came to Brush Creek or Arlington, Fayette County, Iowa, in 1865, following the lead of sons Samuel and Morris J.  who pioneered in the Taylorville/Brush Creek area in 1854. Sons William and Alex would soon remove to Fayette County .   The Thompson's were a true pioneer family in the southeast corner and central part of Fayette County, Iowa, in the early 1850's,  and in Harrison/Carroll County, Ohio in the 1820's.  All of  the other Thompson children would migrate to Fayette County, Iowa, and many descendents would move as pioneer farmers to the west as land opened up in the 1870's through the 1890's.
 ..... Priscilla Albaugh (1805-1879) would meet and marry Zachariah C. Thompson (1796-1880) on January 15, 1822, in New Rumley Twp., Harrison Co., Ohio. The Thompson's were of Scottish background, having immigrated to American as part of the Scotch-Irish movement in the early 1700's. The Thompson Story will be told on another page.  Zach Thompson had migrated at the age of 21 from Maryland to Harrison Co., Ohio, in 1817.  Zach and Priscilla would farm and have ten children in Harrison Co., Ohio. In 1854, two of their children Samuel and Morris Jackson Thompson would migrate and be very early settlers near Taylorsville, three miles to the N,NW of Brush Creek (later Arlington), Iowa.   Brush Creek however, would soon become the dominate village in the area for the Thompson Clan.  Other children would also migrate to Brush Creek with their siblings. 
.... Samuel (my gggrandfather) would die on the way back to Ohio in 1865, perhaps to get the parents, and be buried in Allen Cemetery in Harrison Co. Thus in 1865, Zach C, age 69, and Priscilla, age 60, would buy 120 acres of a government tract on the very southern edge of the tiny pioneer village of Brush Creek (the history of Brush Creek/Arlington is on other pages} and farm their until their deaths fifteen years later. The farm land was tall and wet grass prairie, located to the SE of the Six Corner Intersection at the south edge of Brush Creek. The old Mission Trail from Dubuque to Ft. Atkinson ran on the western edge of their land. Son Morris J. was farming two miles to the west of Brush Creek.  Son Samuel had been farming in the Grannis Canyon area six miles to the north, and apparently ( my gggrandmother) Samuel's wife Martha Sherman Thompson, with six children (ages 1-10) were still on that farm when Zach and Priscilla arrived from Ohio, in 1865. At least some of Samuel's and Martha's children were taken in by Morris J.  Martha would go on the marry John Little, a Brush Creek farmer and cooper a couple of miles NW of town.
.... Thus the Thompson/Albuagh Clan connection to Taylorsville, Brush Creek/Arlington, Fayette County, Iowa, began in 1854, with the migration of the sons, and of Zach Caleb I and Priscilla Albaugh Thompson in 1865, and the migration of several other children. Zach and Priscilla, Morris J. Eli, and William. are buried in Groat Cemetery, Arlington, Iowa, along with their spouses and some grandchildren.   Many of the grandchildren of Zach and Priscilla continued the pioneer migration to the west, during the last decades of the 1800's. The Clans were true American Pioneers.

Appears in an early Maryland census in Harford (Hartford) County, Maryland.

Was Scotch-Irish, therefore the family roots are in Scotland but probably was part of the Scottish population displaced to Ireland during and after the Scotch-Irish war.

The couple apparently had 12-13 children, Andrew Thompson being the oldest; born 1769, died 1835.

Thomas Thompson fought in the American Revolutionary War of the aryl 1770's.

Generation No. 2

 

2. Andrew2 Thompson (Thomas1) was born 1769 in Harford County, Maryland, and died April 10, 1835 in Carroll Co, Ohio. He married Elizabeth Denbow, daughter of John Denbow and Martha Unknown. She was born 1774 in Harford County, Maryland, and died 1848 in Harrison Co, Ohio.

Notes for Andrew Thompson:

Andrew Thompson (1769-1835) was the oldest son of Thomas Thompson and Sarah, the had 12-13 children, and appear in Harford County, Maryland, in an early census. Thomas was Scotch-Irish.

Andrew and his family apparently moved to Rumley Twp., Harrison County, Ohio, in 1817.

The couple had seven children between 1795 and 1813. Zachariah (1796-1880), the second eldest would have 12 children with Priscilla Albaugh. Three of their boys, William, Morris J., Samuel A., migrate and become early settlers of Brush Creek (Arlington), Iowa, in the mid-1850's. The three sons established themselves and farmed near Arlington. Their parents came of the Arlington area in 1866.

It appears a group of Thompson's lived and died in Harford County, Maryland and Rumley Twp., Harrison County, Ohio.

Notes for Zachariah I Caleb Thompson:

THOUGHTS REGARDING THE THOMPSON MIGRATION to FAYETTE COUNTY, IOWA, 10/2000/BZ---

POST TO ME IF YOU HAVE HARD INFO OR IDEAS, iowaz@hotmail.com

At this point in time 10/2000, I NEED HELP WITH MORE ACTUAL FACTS. It seems possible that the three Thompson brothers, Samuel, Morris J., William (wife was Jane Capper), and the Capper siblings of John, Jane, Drinda, and of course their Failes, all removed to Fayette Co. at the same time, starting the trip in the spring/summer of 1854 and arriving mid to late summer of 1854. Samuel and Morris J. taking up land 1 1/2 miles east of Taylorville, with William Thompson and John Capper taking up land 3-4 miles north of Wadena. All of the families would have been within 5-6 miles of each other.

The families of William Thompson and John Capper were living adjacent to each other in Pleasant Valley Twp., in Fayette Co., Iowa in the 1860 Census. John apparently was the brother of William's wife Jane Capper (I do not know that at this time; only an assumption). It appears that sister Drinda Capper (listed in the 1860 Census in John's household) had made the journey to Fayette County and was living with John's family. Since John's daughter Susana was born in Iowa, and five years old in 1860, it appears the John Capper, Jane Capper Thompson's brother had removed to Fayette Co., Iowa about the time Samuel and Morris Thompson came in the fall of 1854. John Capper must have taken up land close to that bought by William Thompson described below, just 3 miles north of Wadena. William and Jane's daughter Hanna Priscilla was born in Iowa in 1857.

There is a note in the 1962 edition of "Thompson Genealogy" which states the Morris J. and William were the two Thompson brothers to migrate to Fayette Co., Iowa in the fall of 1854, but we know that Morris J. and Samuel came together and took up land and farmed together, just east of Taylorville.

From the 1860 Fayette County Census data we know that by 1860, Samuel was farming between Fayette and Wadena near the Grannis Canyon/Valley area, Morris J. was farming near Brush Creek, William was farming north of Wadena adjacent to brother-in-law John Capper, and Alex had arrived in the area, probably about 1857, as his oldest child Charles was born in Iowa and was listed as two years old in the 1860 census, and he was farming near West Union. There is from Ohio, a James Thompson, born 1835, that is a blacksmith in Fayette in 1860, that I have not connected to our Thompson Clan, yet.

LAND PURCHASE: This is the first official land entry I have found in the Fayette Co., books for William. The next time I get into the Fayette Co. Courthouse books, I will see what I can find for the Capper family.

---July 20, 1860, William David Thompson bought in Illyria Twp., SW , NE , Sec 10, T93, R7 (This is 40 acres of very hilly timbered land, 3 miles directly north of present day, 2000, Wadena), recorded in book J, page 597. William (1823-1894) is the oldest son of Zach C. and Priscilla Thompson. This is the first land transaction found for William in Fayette County, thus apparently he made the migration in late 1859 or early 1860 at the age of 37, with wife Jane Capper (1825Ohio-1905), son Stewart (1848Ohio-1894), daughter Eliza A. (1851Ohio-1919), son David C. (1852Ohio-1924), and daughter Hanna Priscilla (1857Iowa-1922).

Notes from "Thompson Genealogy," Second Edition, by Thomas Thompson, Sept. 1962:

------Joshia and Zachariah, Thompson brothers, took up an original land grant from the government, and received their land patent from Washington, D.C., 1824. In 1830, Zachariah, by purchase, owned the entire original tract. When the first Ohio census was taken in 1830, the original record shows Andrew Thompson family was taken first and the Zachariah family record is next in order. Andrew Thompson was a property holder, living on a 15 acre farm in 1830.

--------In 1865, Zachariah sold the Ohio land to James Amos (the Thompson and Amos Clans were neighbors and married) and moved to Brush Creek, Fayette, Co., Iowa, to join sons and family that had migrated into the area and set up farms.

--------All of the 11 children of Zach and Priscilla were born on the old farm in Ohio.

 

From the Early History of Harrison Co., Ohio, page 172: At the age of 21 (1817) Zach Thompson accompanied his parents to Ohio, and four years later (1821), he married Priscilla Albaugh, who was born and reared in Harrison Co., now Carroll County, Ohio, having never been outside its borders until she accompanied her husband to Iowa ( Brush Creek, later Arlington, Fayette, Co.). Zach obtained land from the government in Fayette County and from the wild prairie developed a good farm, upon which he resided for eleven years and where he died in 1880. Many were the hardships and privations endured by the early settlers and to them we owe a debt of gratitude which can never be repaid. All of their salt had to be brought across the mountains and a bushel of wheat would not buy a pound of coffee.

About 1865 Zacariah Thompson and his wife bade good bye to Ohio and came to Iowa, settling on a farm abut one mile from Brush Creek. When a young man Mr. Thompson had learned the carpenter's trade which he followed to some extent in connection with farming but made the latter occupation his chief work in life. while a young man he was ordained for the ministry and was active in the work and interests of the church, doing much work for the Master.

 

Note: Zach Thompson's farm was 120 acres and sat in the SW wedge of land at the Six Corner's, just at the south end of Brush Creek (Arlington, Iowa). The Six Corner's Intersection has been there since pioneer days. It was formed from when north-south roads or trails were started at this location on the Old Mission Trail, which ran from SE to NW. Along the Mission Trail, the early cabins of Brush Creek were located. Thus the intersection of three trails formed what would become known as the "Six Corners." Zach's farm was the 120 acres bordering to the SW of the Six Corners. The Arlington Coop and some Ag. Industries sit along the two bordering roads. The rest of the land is still farmed, mainly in corn and beans. Zach followed his son's Samuel and Morris to the Brush Creek area. Morris would claim and farm land 2-3 miles straight west of the six corners. Samuel would farm land about six miles north of Brush Creek, in what would become known as Grannis Hollow. It is here that my GGGrandmother Amanda Katura Thompson would be born. It is in the Grannis Valley, on a relatively small farm that Samuel's wife Martha Sherman would be left with six young children, 0-10yrs, when Samuel would die in 1865 on the way back to Ohio. Several other of Zach's children would come to Brush Creek, which would become like Carroll Co., Ohio, a pioneer village/area of the Thompson Clan for several generations. The Thompson Clan in Fayette County, Iowa geographically lived from the southern edge of Brush Creek, up to the north and northwest 6-8 miles between the villages of Fayette and Wadena, to include Albany and Lima, before the Clan started to spread out to the West and other areas of the country.

THOMPSON LAND TRANSACTIONS IN FAYETTE COUNTY, IOWA,

with background and speculation information by BZ, 9/2000

In 1854, during the late summer and fall, Samuel Andrew Thompson (1827-1865, 4th child) and Morris Jackson Thompson (1829-1918, 6th child) sons of Zachariah Caleb and Priscilla Albaugh Thompson, removed from Harrison/Carroll Co., Ohio, to the Brush Creek/Taylorsville area of Fairfield Twp., Fayette County, Iowa. The two brothers traveled by railroad to the Ohio River, than down the Ohio by flatboat, up the Mississippi River to Dubuque and into the Brush Creek area on the Mission Road by wagon pulled by Oxen, probably a horse or two, perhaps a cow, plus a few basic tools and wares of the day. Fayette County, Iowa had only been open to white settlers since the late 1840's and the total population of the county was only a few hundred European descendants at the time Samuel and Morris arrived. They were in reality some of the first pioneers into the area.

When the two Thompson brothers made their trip to Iowa, Samuel was 27 and was married to Martha Jane Sherman who made the trip with him. They had no children yet, the first Mary Priscilla was born in 1855, probably in Fairfield Twp., on their first land claim, just 1 miles west of Taylorsville, Iowa (Taylorsville no longer exists in 2000, but the cemetery is still present). Samuel and Martha's second child, Amanda Katura was reportedly born near the Grannis Creek area in 1856, which was several miles NW of the original land claim near Taylorsville, and only about a year plus after arrival in the area. The two brothers were reported to have lived about six years west of Taylorsville so there is an unknown in the accuracy of that "story" from the "Biographical Album of Fayette County," and to the actual residence of Samuel. Samuel appears to have been doing a lot of traveling around Fayette County during the late 1850's, probably claiming, buying and selling land, as well as breaking ground and farming with Morris near Taylorsville.

It is possible that Samuel had been breaking farm ground near the Grannis Creek area, had a cabin and farmstead there, as well as farming with Morris back at Taylorsville. That may explain the birth of Amanda K. and the other children near Grannis Canyon. It would appear that like most of the other early settlers/farmers that the first years of pioneer farming in the area were extremely difficult with many people not making it, and others just holding on to an existence. Morris was 25 at the time of the migration from Ohio, and had been married for four years to Sarah Jane Brown, who with their son Othello D. (1852-1924) made the migration. Sarah Jane apparently was pregnant with John A. (1854-1914), who may have been born along the way, or early upon arrival in the Taylorsville area. Morris had apprenticed as a blacksmith at the age of 17, so was an experienced Smith upon arrival in Iowa, and probably put his skills to use right away, making his own tools, tools for his brother Samuel and perhaps other early settlers. Morris would utilize that trade for many years, as well as the farming skills learned through the family in Ohio. Thus the initial Thompson settlers in Fayette County consisted of the two brothers, their wives, and the two very young sons of Morris J.

As of this date (9/2000/BZ), land ownership in Fayette, Iowa, has also been found for two other brothers. In 1860, William Thompson had land in Illyra Twp., a few miles north of Wadena. In 1865 brother Alexander is recorded as selling land near West Union, and in 1867 had land several miles west of Brush Creek. Father Zach I Caleb Thompson would buy land in 1865 on the southern edge of Brush Creek. Martha Sherman's brother Josiah Sherman bought land with his brother-in-law Samuel Thompson, early in 1865, just before Sam would leave for Ohio, and die along the way. Thus Josiah seems to have removed to Fayette County by 1865, and apparently was the only sibling of Martha Sherman to make the trip, the other family members staying in Ohio. Martha would eventually remarry M.F. Little quit sometime after Samuel's death in 1865. M.F. Little farmed just to the NW of Brush Creek and about a mile N of the long term farm of Morris J. Thompson who was appointed guardian of Samuel's children. If is probable that for some years after the death of Samuel that Martha and the children lived on the farm of Morris J., which would have been 2 miles W of Brush Creek.

The next trip to the Fayette County Courthouse will be a land records "re-search." If anyone has information/correction/discussion on land transactions and relocation's, please post to me. As of 9/2000, I am looking for the exact year that the other members of Zach I and Priscilla's children moved to Brush Creek. We know that Sam and Morris came in 1854. William was in Fayette Co. by 1860 ("Thompson Genealogy" states that William accompanied Morris J. to Fayette Co., but this is incorrect, it was Samuel Andrew, 8/2000/BZ), Alex by 1865, Catherine in 1877. Eli, Martha Thompson Allen, Allen and David B., the remainder of the family would also end up in Brush Creek.

MORRIS J. THOMPSON from, "The Portrait and Biographical Album of Fayette County, Iowa, 1880"

Morris J. Thompson has for thirty years resided upon his farm on section 31 of Fairfield Township. Add to that period seven years and we have the length of time in which he has resided in the county. He was born in Carroll County, Ohio, September 3, 1829, and is of Scotch descent.

Looking backward many years we find Morris conning his lessons in a log schoolhouse that is furnished with slab seats, a huge fireplace in one end and desks along the wall. He only attended in the winter season and then was frequently absent on account of the work upon the farm requiring his services. He was early inured to hard work and at the age of seventeen began to learn the blacksmith's trade which he followed until twenty-five years of age when he came to Iowa. He made the trip with his brother Samuel, and the journey was accomplished by means of the railroad, the lakes, the Mississippi, and ox-teams which bore them to their destination. He purchased one hundred and twenty acres of land a short distance east of Taylorville at $3 per acre which exhausted his capital. Here Morris endured many hardships and privations such as fall to the lot of a pioneer and did much hard work. He was forced to go bare-footed some of the time and often worked out of doors in cold weather without shelter, shoeing oxen. He and his brother Samuel walked five miles to cut logs for their house; eating frozen dinners in the woods and when the cabin was built lived in it from April to Christmas without a window. Morris and Samuel came to Fayette County in the fall of 1854, and having lived for seven years upon one farm purchased his homestead in 1861. The land was wild and unimproved but he at once began its development and now has two hundred and forty acres under a high state of cultivation, furnished with the necessary buildings and in connection with this he has enough to keep him in his declining years in peace and plenty. Beside farming he engaged in blacksmithing for thirty years.

LAND RECORDING DATA COLLECTED FROM THE FAYETTE COUNTY COURTHOUSE, 8/1990/BZ

---November, 1854, the following is a copy of a land sales in 1863, which apparently is the initial "purchase" of land by Samuel and Morris Thompson when they removed to Fayette County, Iowa------September 8, 1863, Morris Jackson Thompson sold in Fairfield Twp., N , NE , Sec24, T92, R7 (This is 80 acres two miles to the east of Taylorsville on the county line with Clayton County. This was rolling timbered land with medium and wet grass prairie in the bottoms.), recorded in book O, page 11. THIS IS PROBABLY THE INITIAL LAND CLAIMED BY SAMUEL AND MORRIS THOMPSON IN NOVEMBER OF 1854, when the two brother arrived in Fairfield Twp. This is 3 miles E and 1 miles N of Brush Creek. It is probable that Samuel transferred his portion of this land to Morris by 1863, and that Morris sold this parcel to buy the farmland 2 miles.

---November 13, 1854, brothers Samuel Andrew Thompson and Morris Jackson Thompson bought in Fairfield Twp., the N , NE , Sec 34, T92, R 7 (This is 80 acres 1 miles SE of Brush Creek and was along the east side of the Mission Road to Fr. Atkinson. In 1873, the railroad would cut NW across this land, and in 1865, their Father Zach C. would move to brush creek and farm the land just to the west of this acreage. The land in this area was a variety of tall grass and wet grass prairie with small tree lined creeks running through it. At this time it would have unplowed, uncut, unused virgin prairie county. ), recorded in book P, page 416.

--- November 13, 1854, brothers Samuel Andrew Thompson and Morris Jackson Thompson bought in Fairfield Twp., NE , SW , Sec 3, T92, R7 (This is 40 acres of hilly, timbered land with a deep valley creek running through it. Wood for log buildings, fires, building, tools, etc., was absolutely necessary for the success of any pioneer farming endeavor, therefore almost every early settler out in the prairie area to the S, SE, W and NW of Brush Creek, had to own at least a small parcel of timbered land to the N of brush creek, or have enough creek/river bottom timber to get along.), recorded in book P, page 416.

---March 26, 1855, Samuel Andrew Thompson and Morris Jackson Thompson, bought in West Union Twp., the NW , NW , and NE , NE Sec 17, T94, R8, and E , NE , Sec 18, T94, R8 (This is 160 acres of timbered land with a creek running diagonally through it, located immediately bordering the west side of present day West Union (2000). Then the are was a few log cabins and a merchant or two, known as Knob Prairie), recorded in book P, page 360. Perhaps in the Winter of their arrival the two brothers traveled up the Mission Road, past Fayette, Iowa, then straight north to Knob Prairie finding an area to lay claim too. They may have been going to Knob Prairie to register the land near Brush Creek and also looking for new land.

---November 11, 1856, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Westfield Twp., W , SW , Sec 36, T93, R8 (This is 80 acres of rolling hills with timber and prairie bottoms, 1 mile south and 3 miles east of Fayette.), recorded in book I, page 124.

---January 14, 1859, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Oran Twp., S , SE , and the NW , SE of Sec 7, T91, R10 (This is 160 acres of tall and wet grass prairie a mile west of the Wapsipinicon River, and 1 miles west and 4 miles north of present day Fairbanks, or 20 miles west and 3 miles south of Brush Creek.

---January 14, 1859, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Oran Twp., S , SE , and the NW , SE of Sec 20, T91, R10 (This is 160 acres of wet grass prairie, slough land, brushy bottom land timber on the west side of the Wapsipinican River, 1 miles north of present day Fairbanks, or 20 miles west and 6 miles south of Brush Creek.), recorded in book K?, page 23.

---April 16, 1859, Samuel Andrew Thompson sold in Westfield Twp., W , SW , Sec 36, T93, R8 (This is 80 acres of rolling hills with timber and prairie bottoms, 1 mile south and 3 miles east of Fayette.), recorded in book K?, page 23.

---July 20, 1860, William H. Thompson bought in Illyria Twp., SW , NE , Sec 10, T93, R7 (This is 40 acres of very hilly timbered land, 3 miles directly north of present day, 2000, Wadena), recorded in book J, page 597. William (1823-1894) is the oldest son of Zach C. and Priscilla Thompson. This is the first land transaction found for William in Fayette County, thus apparently he made the migration in late 1859 or early 1860 at the age of 37, with wife Jane Capper (1825-1905), son Stewart (1848-1894), daughter Eliza A. (1851-1919), son David C. (1852-1924), and daughter Hanna Priscilla (1857-1922).

---April 30, 1862, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in West Union Twp., NE , Sec 7 and N of NE , Sec 18, T94, R8 (This is a total of 240 acres 1 miles W/NW of West Union in the same area Samuel bought 45 acres of timber land in 1855. This new land was a combination of rolling prairie land and wet grass prairie bottomland with a creek running through it.

---September 8, 1863, Morris Jackson Thompson bought in Fairfield Twp., E , NW , Sec 32, T92, R7 (This is 80 acres 2 miles west of the "six corner intersection" at the S side of Brush Creek.), recorded in book n, p 295. THIS FARM APPARENTLY IS THE FINAL HOMESTEAD FARM AND MAIN LAND HOLDING OF MORRIS J. THOMPSON

---September 8, 1863, Morris Jackson Thompson sold in Fairfield Twp., N , NE , Sec24, T92, R7 (This is 80 acres two miles to the east of Taylorsville on the county line with Clayton County. This was rolling timbered land with medium and wet grass prairie in the bottoms.), recorded in book O, page 11. THIS IS PROBABLY THE INITIAL LAND CLAIMED BY SAMUEL AND MORRIS THOMPSON IN NOVEMBER OF 1854, when the two brother arrived in Fairfield Twp. This is 3 miles E and 1 miles N of Brush Creek. It is probable that Samuel transferred his portion of this land to Morris by 1863, and that Morris sold this parcel to buy the farmland 2 miles

---October 14, 1863, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Smithfield Twp., E 5/8, NE , Sec 36, T 92, R8 (This is 100 acres 3+ miles west of the "six corner intersection" at the south side of Brush Creek, and two miles just west of the land Morris Jackson registered in this same year.), recorded in book O, page 388.

---October 14, 1863, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Fairfield Twp., N , E , SE , SWW , Sec 9, T92, R7 (This is 20 acres of hill timber 3 miles straight N of Brush Creek), recorded in book O, page 388. Again, these small woodland plots would be land utilized for wood cutting.

----October 14, 1863, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Westfield Twp., W , SW , Sec 36, T93, R8 (This is 80 acres of rolling hills 1 miles S and 3 miles east of Fayette, just to the west of the timber land in the area.), recorded in book O, page 389.

---December 1, 1863, William Thompson sold in Pleasant Valley Twp, N , SE , Sec 18, T94, R7 (This is 80 acres of basically hill timber 4 miles straight west of present day Elgin.), recorded in book ), page 485.

---March 17, 1864, William Thompson bought in Smithfield Twp., S , W , and NW , S , Sec 27, T92, R8 (This is 225 acres of tall and wet grass rolling prairie six miles west of the "six corner intersection" and was 2-3 miles west of the land owned by brothers Samuel and Morris.), recorded in book R, page 108.

---January 10, 1865, Samuel Andrew Thomspon and Josiah Sherman (Sam's brother-in-law, Martha's brother) bought in Smithfield Twp., W , W , NE1/4, Sec 36, T92, R8 (This is 60 acres of tall and wet grass prairie 3 miles straight W of

"Six corner's" at the south edge of Brush Creek, and in the area of final settlement of Morris J.), recorded in book R, page 63.

---April 5 1865, Alex Thompson sold in West Union Twp., E , E , NE , Sec 25, T94, R8 (This is 40 acres of hilly timber land, 1 miles W of Brainard, or 2 miles S, 4 miles east of West Union.), recorded in book R, page 152.

---April 7, 1865, SAMUEL ANDREW THOMPSON DIED ON THE WAY BACK TO OHIO, AND WOULD BE TAKEN THE REST OF THE WAY TO RUMLEY TWP. AND BURIED IN ALLEN MEMORIAL CEMETERY. It would appear that by this time Samuel had bought and sold considerable property in Fayette County. Since the land holdings were so dispersed around the county, one can speculate that Samuel was spending time traveling throughout the county exploring for land holdings, and at a very early time in the history of the county. In the future Samuel's brothers would sell some of his land, so they apparently acted as executors and guardians of his six children who where 1-10 years old at his death. Presently, I do not know what the arrangements for his wife Martha Sherman were, or who in the Sherman family might have also been Fayette County at this time. Where the family lived, or by what means is unknown at this time. Martha's burial is unknown, 9/2000/Z.

---Summer, 1865, the father and mother of the Thompson boy's who had removed to Fayette Co., Iowa, were now joined by their Parents, Zachariah I Caleb and Priscilla Albaugh Thompson. Zach I would purchase 120 acres at the south edge of Brush Creek. The SE part of the "Six Corner Intersection." The diagonal of the Mission Road would run through his property.

---March 1966, Morris Jackson Thompson, sold as Administrator of Samuel Jackson Thompson, to Josiah Sherman, in Smithfield Twp., W , W , W , NE , Sec 36, T92, R8 (This is 30 acres of prairie land that was 3 miles west of "six corner intersection" on the south side of Brush Creek), recorded in book X, page 561. It has to be assumed that this is Martha Sherman's brother Josiah (1838-1923), thus other members of the Sherman family from Carroll/Harrison Co., Ohio must have migrated to Fayette Co., Iowa.

---June 14, 1867, Alexander Thompson, bought in Smithfield Twp., W , NW , Sec 24, T92, R8 (This is 80 acres of wet and tall grass prairie 1 miles N and 4 miles W of Brush Creek.), recorded in book Z, page 491.

---May 2, 1868, William Thompson Guardian of the Minor Heirs of Samuel Andrew Thompson, sold in Westfield Twp., 2/3 undeveloped, W , SW , Sec 36, T93, R8 (This the 80 acres that on November 11, 1856, Samuel Andrew Thompson bought in Westfield Twp, of rolling hills with timber and prairie bottoms, 1 mile south and 3 miles east of Fayette, recorded in book I, page 124.), recorded in book Y, page 463.

---May 18, 1868, William David Thompson, sold in Pleasant Valley, SE , SE , Sec 1, T94, R7 (This is 40 acres of timbered hard hill country, 2 miles N and 1 mile E of Elgin Iowa on the Clayton Co. line.) recorded in book Y, page 485.

---May 18, 1868, William David Thompson sold in Oran Twp., W , NW , of Sec 6, T91, R 10 (This is 80 acres of mainly wet grass prairie on the west fringe of the Wapsipinican River bottom timber.), recorded in book Y, page 515. This may be land that William's brother had acquired in his wanderings around the county, as in 1859 Samuel had claimed land in Oran Twp., north of present day Fairbank.

---January 2, 1869, Morris Jackson Thompson bought in Fairfield Twp., SW , SE , Sec 29, T92, R7 (This if 40acres of tall and wet grass prairie 1 miles west of "six corners intersection", on the north side of the road.), recorded in book 28, page 20. This land is close to the other Thompson holdings west of six corners.

---April 1869, William David Thompson sold ?, see record note, recorded in book H2, page 334.

---October 8, 1870, William David Thompson bought in Auburn Twp., W , off N side of SE , NE , Sec 33, T95, R9 (This was a 12 acres timbered area in the NW part of Fayette Co., 3 miles N and 6 miles W of West Union), recorded in book 31, page 331.

--- November 1, 1870, William David Thompson, bought in Illyria Twp., SW , NE , Sec 1, T93, R7 (This is 80 acres of very hilly timbered land 3 miles E and 4 miles N of Wadena, and on the Clayton Co. line. By this time much of the timber had been cleared, the thin forest soil plowed and row crops put in where possible, especially on the lower slopes and bottoms. Much of the land was pastures, hogs and some cattle were allowed to run wild.), recorded in book 30, page 492.

---October 12, 1872, Alex Thompson bought from William Thompson, in Auburn Twp., undeveloped of 13 acres in SE , NW , Sec 34, T95, R9 (This hilly timbered land very near or bordering on the Turkey River, 1 miles S and 1 miles W of Auburn, or 5 miles west and 3 miles N of West Union.), recorded in book 33, page 521.

---December 17, 1886, Morris J. Thompson sold for Sam Thompson in Fairfield Twp., W , E , NE , NW , Sec 3, T92, R7 (This is 5 acres hilly forested land 4 miles N and 1 miles E of Brush Creek, and 3 miles N of Taylorsville.), recorded in book Z, page 5.

Generation No. 4

 

17. William David4 Thompson (Zachariah I Caleb3, Andrew2, Thomas1) was born January 12, 1823 in New Rumley, Harrison Co, Ohio, and died August 02, 1894 in Arlington, Fayette Co, Iowa. He married (1) Eliza Jane Stewart March 07, 1847 in Carroll Co, Ohio, daughter of Mahlon Stewart and Elizabeth Park. She was born 1829, and died April 14, 1848 in Carroll Co., Ohio. He married (2) Jane Capper April 25, 1850 in Carroll Co, Ohio, daughter of John Capper and Susannah Morrison. She was born December 04, 1825 in Carroll Co., Ohio, and died 1905 in Arlington, Fayette Co, Iowa.

Notes for William David Thompson:

The first three children were born in Carroll Co., Ohio, which means that the fourth Hanna born 1857, was probably born in Fayette County, Iowa, either near the farm of Samuel or Morris J. in the Taylorsville Area, or to the north of Wadena where the first records of land purchase by William occurs. As of 9/2000, I would tend to think William came to Fayette County a year or so after Samuel and Morris who arrived in the fall of 1854, I am guessing in the summer/fall of 1856. William apparently took up land just north of Wadena, which was only about 5 miles from Samuel's land between Fayette and Wadena, while Morris J. stayed close to Brush Creek, just to the west. All of the Thompson Clan would end up within about eight miles of each other.

Thompson bought in Illyria Twp., SW , NE , Sec 10, T93, R7 (This is 40 acres of very hilly timbered land, 3 miles directly north of present day, 2000, Wadena), recorded in book J, page 597. William (1823-1894) is the oldest son of Zach C. and Priscilla Thompson. This is the first land transaction found for William in Fayette County, thus apparently he made the migration in late 1859 or early 1860 at the age of 37, with wife Jane Capper (1825-1905), son Stewart (1848-1894), daughter Eliza A. (1851-1919), son David C. (1852-1924), and daughter Hanna Priscilla (1857-1922).

Thompson, Samuel I. From the Historical Collections of Harrison

County, Ohio, Page 172-3: Looking backward many years we find

brother Morris conning his lessons in a log schoolhouse that is furnished with slab

seats, a huge fireplace in one end and desks along the wall, he only

attended in the winter season and then was frequently absent on account

of the work upon the farm requiring his services. he was early inured to

hard work and at the age of seventeen began to learn the blacksmith's

trade which he followed until twenty-five years of age when he came to

Iowa. He made the trip with his brother Samuel, and the journey was

accomplished by means of the railroad, the lakes, the Mississippi, and

ox-teams which bore them to their destination. He purchased one hundred

and twenty acres of land a short distance east of Taylorville at $3 per

acre which exhausted his capital. Here he endured many hardships and

privations such as fall to the lot of a pioneer and did much hard work.

He was forced to go bare-footed some of the time and often worked out of

doors in cold weather without shelter, shooing oxen. He and his brother

walked five miles to cut logs for their house, eating frozen dinners in

the woods and when the cabin was built lived in it from April to

Christmas without a window. Morris I Jackson Thompson and

Samuel I Andrew Thompson came to Fayette county in the

fall of 1854, and having lived for seven years upon one farm purchased

his homestead in 1861. The land was wild and unimproved but he at once

began its development and now has two hundred and forty acres under a

high state of cultivation, furnished with the necessary buildings and in

connection with this he has enough to keep him in his declining years in

peace and plenty. Beside farming, Morris engaged in blacksmithing for thirty

years. Mr. and Mrs. Thompson [were] members of the Christian Church of

Brush Creek, with which he has been connected for twenty-eight years,

some of that time as Elder. He has done much for its upbuilding, labored

untiringly for its interests and given liberally for its support. A

Christian life has won him many friends who respect him for his many

excellencies of character, As a pioneer settler of the county he has

been identified with its history, has seen its growth and progress and

watched its development. Morris used to haul wheat forty miles with an

ox-team to the Mississippi River and then receive only forty cents per

bushel, but now has a market almost at his door. In political sentiments

he is a Republican, having supported that party since casting his first

vote for J. C. Fremont.

22. Catherine4 Thompson (Zachariah I Caleb3, Andrew2, Thomas1) was born September 26, 1831 in New Rumley, Harrison Co, OH, and died May 02, 1914 in Custer, Custer Co., Nebraska. She married John Mordecai Amos March 21, 1850 in Carroll Co, Ohio, son of John Amos and Metsy. He was born March 25, 1831 in Pennsylvania, and died July 13, 1907 in Wescott, Custer Co., Nebraska.

Notes for Catherine Thompson:

Catherine Thompson was the oldest daughter of Zachariah I and Priscilla Albaugh. She married John Mordecai Amos in 1852, in Carroll county, Ohio. They would live on a farm near Perrysville, now Lamartine, Ohio. All of their children were born on the farm and grew to maturity there, except for Mary M. who died at age three. In 1877, Catherine and her family moved by rail to Brush Creek/Arlington, Fayette Co., Iowa, to join her parents and siblings who had relocated there during the 1850-70's. Catherine and family would live in Brush Creek until 1883 when the two families still in Ohio joined them in a move to Dry Valley, in Custer County, Nebraska.

JOHN MORDECAI and CATHERINE THOMPSON AMOS.---from "The Biographies of Custer Co., NB", http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/county/custer/bio/bio1.htm

The late John Mordecai Amos was one of the best known and highly respected citizens of Custer County. He was a public-spirited citizen interested in all pertaining to the general welfare and ready to do his share to promote the same. He was born in Pennsylvania, of English extraction, in March, 1831, third of the five children of John and Metsy Amos. He has two brothers living in Ohio, the only survivors of the family. When but a child Mr. Amos went with his brother, William, to Carroll County, Ohio, living on a farm and attending the district schools. He was there married, March 25, 1849, at the home of her parents, to Miss Catherine Thompson, daughter of Zechariah and Priscilla (Albaugh) Thompson, and a native of Ohio. Mr. Thompson was born in Maryland and was an early settler of Iowa, where he died. His wife was born in Ohio and died in Illinois. Mrs. Amos has three brothers in Iowa.

In the late seventies Mr. and Mrs. Amos went to Fayette County, Iowa, where they carried on farming until the spring of 1883, when they came to Custer County and took a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres on section twenty-one, township eighteen, range eighteen, and a tree claim of like size adjoining. This was the home place for a number of years, but in 1905, Mr. Amos retired from active life and purchased ten acres in Wescott, where he lived until the time of his death, July 13, 1907. He is survived by his wife and seven children: Alfred, of Custer County; Lycurgus, Zachariah and William, all married and living in Custer County; Mrs. N. E. Armstrong, of Broken Bow; Mrs. Emma McCuen, of Custer County; Mrs. Laura Westerville, of Scotts Bluff, Nebraska.

Mr. Amos was always interested in the upbuilding of his locality and his wife likewise has identified herself with various measures for the public good. She is active and vigorous and still has the old home, although she spends considerable time visiting among her children. She enjoys the regard of a wide circle of friends and is well known in the community.

Zachariah D. Amos, third son of John M. and Catherine (Thompson) Amos, was born in Ohio, and when sixteen years of age accompanied his parents to Iowa. He came to Custer County in the spring of 1883 and took up a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres on section twenty-eight, township eighteen, range eighteen. He was married in Valley County, June 7, 1891, to Miss Arabella Love, who was born in Wisconsin, and for some time before her marriage had been a teacher in Nebraska schools. She had also homesteaded one hundred and sixty acres of land on section twenty-two, township eighteen, range eighteen, where she and her husband now reside. He has served for a number of years as moderator of the school board of district number two hundred and forty-two. Mr. and Mrs. Amos have three children living: Ailsa Bell, Maud L. and Frieda B., all at home. They also have in their household circle, Alice Emerson, whom they have reared since her infancy.

From the obituary of John R. Thompson:

FOR YEARS ONE OF THE MOST PROMINENT LAWYERS OF CITY - ACTIVE IN POLITICS AND AN ENTHUSIASTIC WORKER IN LODGE CIRCLES - FUNERAL MONDAY

The citizens of Hall County and Grand Island today mourn the loss of an esteemed citizen. For some years the finger of disease laid its finger upon him. He battled bravely; but for the past few months it was noticeable that the sad inevitable had come and Judge John R. Thompson was called to his reward which those who knew him best know will be the everlasting peace and rest promised all who live bravely and well and do the best they can with life. For many years a district judge and in the days of the ascendancy of the populist party a prominent candidate for the nomination for supreme judge and governor, his life was a busy one and its varied duties were promptly and faithfully met.

Mr. Thompson passed away at his farm in Cameron township yesterday afternoon, death resulting from tuberculosis. He had been ailing for the last year and his condition would not permit him to do much work for the last six months. For over three weeks he was seriously ill and there appeared to be no hope for his recovery. Relatives called on Mr. Thompson daily and at all times he was confident he would recover. He was conscious until the very end and talked very intelligently with his brother. On a recent visit he discussed the political prospects and wanted to know what Wilson's chances were. At no time did he suffer or complain of any pain and he died peacefully.

The funeral will take place next Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock, from the residence at 823 West Second Street. Rev. Gettys of the First M.E. church will conduct the service at the house and from there the obs------ -----German and Irish descent. Both were children of early settlers near Maryland, Md. Eli Thompson and his wife were both born in Carroll county, Ohio. He learned the blacksmith trade, and followed it until 1864, when he became a resident of Fayette county, Iowa. There his wife died on Jan.2, 1881. Eight years later he settled on a homestead in Custer County, Nebraska, where he resided until his death, Feb. 3, 1903. J. R. Thompson attended the district school from three to six months each year until he was 18 years old. He then attended the Upper Iowa university at Fayette, IA., but never completed the full course as he was dependent upon his own efforts to defray his expenses, which he did by working upon a farm and teaching school. In 1875, he entered the law department of the University of Iowa at Iowa City and graduated in 1877, under the instruction of W. G. Hammond, a most able teacher, then chancellor of the university and also founder of the law department. After graduating, he opened a law office in company with his brother W. H. Thompson, in his home town now called Arlington, Iowa. In 1879 J. R. Thompson moved to Grand Island and opened an office here, his brother remaining in Arlington. The partnership continued in this way two years; then W. H. Thompson also moved to this city and they continued in business together until January, 1892. During the early days of their partnership they carried on a real estate loan and insurance business, but later they devoted their attention strictly to the legal profession and won a prominent place at the bar of the state. Mr. Thompson cast his first presidential vote for Horace Greeley, and after that time voted with the democratic party until 1882, when he joined the anti-monopoly party, and until 1891 he might have been considered an independent democrat. He has since affiliated with the populist party. He was elected to the position of district judge of this district in 1891 and served three successive terms. He has also served as city and county attorney by appointment of the city and county board. Mr. Thompson was a member of the Knights of Pythias, A.O.U.W., Modern Woodmen, Odd Fellows and the Elks. He was a member of the First Methodist Episcopal church of this city and contributed largely to its support. He was married on Oct., 24, 1880 to Lizzie A. of Iowa City. She died Dec. 8, 1888. Five children were born to this union. Judge Thompson was again married July 25, 1900 to Sarah A. Jones of Iowa City, IA. The second Mrs. Thompson departed from this earth on July 8, 1908.

After retiring from the judgeship, Mr. Thompson continued to practice law in this city and looked after his extensive property interests. He was one of the three law commissioners of the insurgent Modern Woodmen of Nebraska and in the last year devoted considerable attention to this work. For some months Mr. Thompson had retired from business on account of his health and lived out on the farm with his son in Cameron township.

Five children are left to mourn the loss of their father, Mrs. A. H. Farnsworth, Mrs. Grace Jones, Mrs. Kate Carr, John P. Thompson and Mrs. D.(B) W. Musser. Mr. Thompson also leaves two brothers an one sister, the only ones left of a notable family of nine children, all of whom arrived at maturity. They are L. Roff Thompson of Des Moines, Mrs. L. L. Wood of Sargent, Nebraska, and W. H. Thompson of this city. END OF OBITUARY.

THE HISTORY OF HALL COUNTY NEBRASKA, PUBLISHED IN 1920 IN LINCOLN, NEBRASKA HAS THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE ON PAGE 638:

JUDGE JOHN RICHARD THOMPSON was one of the prominent citizens of Grand Island where for more than thirty-six years he was a leading lawyer and served as judge of this district for three consecutive terms.

Mr. Thompson was born at Perryville, Ohio, August 6, 1850, a son of Eli and Eliha (Kirby) Thompson, both natives of Carrol County, Ohio, where they were married and where they made their home until 1864 when they became residents of Fayette County, Iowa. Here the mother passed away January 2, 1881, and eight years later the father came to Nebraska and secured a homestead in Custer County where he spent the remainder of his days, passing away February 3, 1903.

John R. Thompson attended the district school from three to six months each year until he was eighteen years of age. He then attended Upper Iowa University at Fayette, Iowa, but never completed a full course as he was dependent upon his own resources to defray his expenses, which he did by working on a farm and teaching school. In 1875 he entered the law department of the University of Iowa at Iowa City, graduating in 1877, under the instruction of W. G. Hammond, a most able teacher, then chancellor of the University, and founder of the law department. He then joined his brother, W. H. Thompson, and engaged in the practice of law in their home town, Brush Creek, now Arlington, Iowa where Thompson Brothers had opened an office the year before to earn the money needed to defray expenses to complete their law studies. In February, 1879 John R. opened an office in Grand Island, Nebraska while the brother remained in Iowa. In June 1881, W. H. came to Grand Island the partnership continued until 1892, when John R. Thompson was elevated to the bench of the district court of the eleventh judicial district, consisting of eleven counties, where he served three successive terms of four years each. His decisions were always fair and impartial and he was held in the highest esteem by members of the bar and by all with whom he came in contact. After this he continued the practice of his profession until his death September 29, 1915.

October 24, 1880, Mr. Thompson was united in marriage to Miss Lizzie A. Pryce of Iowa City. She passed away December 8, 1888. Judge Thompson was again married July 25, 1900, to Sarah A. Jones of Iowa City and her death occurred in Grand Island eleven years ago. Of the first marriage were born five children: Callie E., wife of Dr. A. H. Farnsworth; Grace, the wife of Julius Jones of Grand Island; Catherine, the wife of Wm Pyne, mayor and editor of a newspaper at Wendell, Idaho; John P., a ranchman of Hall County, Nebraska; and Elizabeth the wife of Benjamin Musser, of New York.

Judge Thompson was a member of and general contributor to the First Methodist Church of Grand Island, and a member of several fraternal organizations. He served the city and county as attorney and stood for all the things that helped to make for the betterment of the community. The city is indebted to Judge Thompson for the beautiful public park known as "Pioneer Park" as it was largely through his persistent agitation that this tract was set aside as a park instead of being platted and sold for residence properties. END OF ARTICLE

I know from my Mother, Elizabeth Thompson, that the Judge spent a lot of time in Boulder, Colorado attempting to ease his problem with "consumption" which is the name given tuberculosis. Bill Thompson told me that he was told that the Judge slept in a tent in his back yard in an attempt to get relief from the disease. George Carr told me that when the farms were purchased in Nebraska they all had sod houses on them. George also told me that the Judge owned the three houses on the block his house was on. Grace lived in one according to George, and he believed that the others were rented out.

My mother, Elizabeth, also told me that Wild Bill Hitchcock and William Jennings Bryan were guests at their home when she was a child. Also that the Judge had convinced the City to have a combination cemetery, Catholic and Protestant in Grand Island. Supposedly the first such in the country.

Bill Thompson claims that we are related to General Custer also. I haven't found that relationship as yet.

Source: Page 118 THE NATIONAL CYCLOPEDIA

THOMPSON, William Henry, judge and U. S. senator, was born at Perrysville, Ohio, December 14, 1853, son of Eli and Eliza (Kirby) Thompson. He was educated at a private school in Iowa and at the Upper (Iowa University - 1872 - 1875) and graduated LLB at State University of Iowa in 1877, having defrayed the expenses of his education by his own efforts. For several years he practiced law with his brother, John Richard Thompson, first at Brush Creek (later Arlington), Iowa and after 1881 at Grand Island, Nebr., until the brother was elevated to the bench. While he was eminently successful as a criminal lawyer, he also had a large civil practice, covering the entire state. He was an organizer and director of the State Bank of Grand Island and a trustee of Grand Island College. When the office of county attorney was created by the legislature in 1886 he was chosen as the first county attorney of Hall County. During 1887-88 he was the city attorney of Grand Island and during 1895-98 he was the mayor of the city. A stalwart Democrat in politics, he was chairman of the Nebraska delegation to the Democratic National Convention in 1892 and was a delegate-at-large to the Democratic National Convention in 1896 when he helped to nominate William Jennings Bryan (q.v.) of whom he was an intimate friend. At the latter convention he was chosen Democratic National Committeeman for Nebraska and served on the executive committee of the national organization until 1900.

He was also a delegate at large to the national conventions of 1900, 1904, 1908, and 1920 and a Democratic nominee for governor of Nebraska in 1902. During 1920 - 1924 he was again Democratic national committeeman for Nebraska. In 1924 Justice Chester H. Aldrich (q.v.) of the Supreme Court of Nebraska died and Gov. Charles W. Bryan (q.v.) appointed Thompson to fill the vacancy. In the following November he was elected on a non-partisan ticket for the full term of six years. Thus at an age when most men have retired from active life he began a new chapter in his career. Many of his opinions became new precedents, notably in the cases of State v. First Bank (114 Nebr., 423) to the effect that an agreement to pay witnesses by a party is contrary to public policy and void; Sallander v. Life Insurance Co. (112 Neb., 629) which modified the evidence rule "that you must either produce a document when it is called for or never", and State v. State Bank (116 Nebr.,223) overruling the rather famous decision in the case of Glove Publishing Co., v. State Bank (41 Nebr.,175) which had overruled seven previous decisions to the effect that pending actions are affected by the repeal of a statute. By dissenting in the case of Eugene v. Union State Bank (118 Nebr.,105) he opened the way to a result not only highly creditable to himself but beneficial to the jurisprudence of the whole country. The other justices concurred in holding that the treaty with Sweden and Norway which provided that "subjects of the contracting parties in the respective states may freely dispose of their property." rendered inapplicable to a Norwegian subject residing in Nebraska, the requirement of the subsequently enacted state homestead law, that a conveyance of the homestead must be executed by both spouses. The case was taken to the Supreme Court of the United States (Todok v. Union State Bank: 281 U.S. 449) which reversed the majority opinion of the Nebraska court and sustained Thompson in his dissent, holding that it was not the purpose of the treaty to give an alien an advantage which the citizen did not enjoy. Thompson had refused a reelection to the bench, but when Senator Robert Belcher Howell died in 1933, Gov. Bryan appointed him for the unexpired term and he took his seat on May 27th, serving until December 1934 when his successor qualified. He was a member of the commission which had charge of the construction of the new state capitol of Nebraska. In religion he was a Presbyterian. He was married Sept. 7th 1879 to Nettie I., daughter of John Hutchinson, an attorney of West Union, Iowa, and they had four children: Edith, who married Wallace E. Porter; Mattie, Grover and Lloyd G. Thompson. He died at Grand Island, June 6, 1937.

Grover left home in 1907 and took up a 640 acre homestead in western Nebraska, which he sold in 1913 and traveled farther west to the open range country of Wyoming. Grover started with 160 acres on a creek and built it up to a 4000 acre rand. In 1933 Grover took a job as land appraiser for the Federal Bank of Omaha. And followed that with the job of State Appraiser for Home Owners Loan Corp, managing a team of appraisers. Grover, after about 10 years would retire to the Ranch.

Notes for Alfred Amos:

ALFRED AMOS. (from the "Biographies of Custer Co., NB", http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/county/custer/bio/bio1.htm

Alfred Amos is a member of a representative family of Custer County, Nebraska, one whose members have identified themselves with various measures for advancing the public welfare and prosperity. They are prominent in social circles and held in high respect and esteem. Mr. Amos was one of the very early settlers of the County and in his first years there met and overcame various discouragements and trials incident to pioneer life. He was born in Carroll County, Ohio, the eldest of seven children of John Mordecai and Catherine (Thompson) Amos. A sketch of the father also appears in this work. Mr. Amos first saw the light of day October 1, 1851, and grew to manhood on the farm in Ohio, being educated in nearby schools. He engaged in farming as a young man and has since followed that occupation. In 1882 he came west looking for a suitable place to locate permanently, and settled in Custer County, homesteading one hundred and sixty acres of land on section twenty-one, township eighteen, range eighteen.

Mr. Amos then returned to Iowa and on March 1, 1883, was united in marriage with Miss Carrie Carnall, who was born in Iowa. She is a daughter of James and Caroline (Nicholson) Carnall, natives of England, the father born in Lincolnshire and the mother in Essex. Mr. Carnall was educated in his native country and married in London, he and his wife coming to America in 1851 and locating in Fayette County, Iowa. He died in Arlington, Iowa, February 11, 1911, at the age of eighty-six years, and his widow now lives in the old home in Arlington, being now (1911) eighty-two years of age. Mrs. Amos has two brothers and a sister in Iowa; one brother in Mansfield, Missouri; one brother in California, and one brother in Colorado Springs.

Mr. and Mrs. Amos established their first home on the Custer County homestead, soon after marriage, remaining there twenty years. He and his wife each served several years as director of the school board of district number ten, she filling the office ten years. In 1903 they purchased three hundred and twenty acres of land on section twenty-one, township eighteen, range eighteen, which is still the home place. They have a well improved and equipped stock and grain farm and are successful and prosperous to a gratifying degree. They have eight children: Wayne L., of Custer County, married Esther Wooters, and they have one child; James Leland, also of Custer County, married Ida L. Bruner, who died March 30, 1911; Anna S., wife of Milton Copsey, lives near Westerville and has three children; Glenn A., Bert S., Catherine, Caroline and Edith Mildred, all at home. Catherine and Caroline are twins.

62. Lycurgus5 Amos (Catherine4 Thompson, Zachariah I Caleb3, Andrew2, Thomas1) was born February 13, 1853 in Carroll Co., Ohio, and died March 01, 1931. He married Isabelle Meyers November 14, 1871, daughter of Joseph Myers and Luella Hardin. She was born 1854 in Carroll Co., Ohio, and died 1941.

Notes for Lycurgus Amos:

LYCURGUS AMOS, from "The Biographies of Custer Co., NB", http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/county/custer/bio/bio1.htm

The Amos family have long been known in Custer County as representatives of the best interests of the region and have taken their part in promoting the general welfare and prosperity. Lycurgus Amos, the second son of John M. and Catherine (Thompson) Amos, was born in Carrol County, Ohio, February 13, 1853. A sketch of his father, to be found in this work, gives a full account of the family. Lycurgus (generally Kirk) Amos grew to manhood on the Ohio Farm, was educated in local schools, and as a young man engaged in farming. He was married in Carrol County, December 14, 1871, Isabelle Myers, also of Ohio birth, and daughter of Joseph and Luella (Hardin) Myers, the father of German descent and a native of Ohio, and the mother probably born in Virginia. Mr. and Mrs. Myers died in Ohio, where three of their daughters and three of their sons now live.

In the fall of 1880 Mr. and Mrs. Amos came with their three children west as far as Fayette County, Iowa, carrying on farming there until the spring of 1883, when they came to Custer County. They secured a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres of land in section twenty-one, township eighteen, range eighteen, which is still the home place, and which has been improved and developed to a fine grain and stock farm.

Seven children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Amos: Merton S., of Custer County, is married and has six children; Cora I., died in 1877, at the age of two years; Otto O., is at home; John M., of Custer County, is married and has one child; Joseph Raymond, of Custer County, is married and has three children; Noel L. and Ted, at home.

Mr. Amos is one of the very early settlers of Custer County, and one of the very few to retain possession of the original homestead for so long a period. He is prosperous and successful and is widely known as a man of high character and integrity, a substantial and useful citizen. He has the confidence and esteem of a large number of friends.
