Thompson family
I've been looking through my paperwork for the last bit and have not found the material I was hoping to find. That said, I stopped at this cemetery a few years ago to stretch my legs. It is right beside Interstate 94, so could see it from the road and decided to take pictures and a walk. I noticed the entire family had died at the same time.

Hence, I wrote the local historical society for the reason, if one. They answered that the family had been attending a gathering, Thanksgiving dinner with relatives, and was traveling home in the evening. For some reason, the car did not stop at the railroad crossing and the entire family died in the accident.

Sorry that I don't have the absolute reference for you but this is what the county historical society told this curious traveler.
