....PLEASE NOTE: Latest update 7/27/2001....My Thompson site had many links in it to picture albums on Photopoint.com, which started charging more for picture hosting than I could justify, as I had over 15,000 pics online. I have lost many or all of those pics so will not be working with that level of photo albums until I get personal control of a server sometime in the future. I have left many of the album topics on my pages but the link has been deleted since it would not work. The topics are left on some of the pages, as for now, I am in the editing mode for the site and what to be reminded of what I had organized. I use my genealogy sites for personal storage and access of info while it is being used and edited. Plus it is uploaded so other "relatives" might find, use and edit the data. DO NOT assume the material is accurate or edited in final form. If you find errors or topics of discussions get back with me. The Thompson Reunion time of the year will motivate me to clean up the Thompson site a bit.

....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.
