William Thomson Hi! I was wondering why the P was dropped in Thompson? He is buried in Thompson Lock Cemetery and it has the P, do you know anything about the spelling? I am just trying to figure out if he is my William because of the spelling being different but mine has the same birth and death so any information you can give me will be appreciated. Also is he buried with a wife? My William was married 3 times.
RE: P.S. I just read your profile... Thanks Wendy for your message and the transfers. Give me a little time to think about that and I'll email you with anything specific. I'm looking for a connection in that area. There are multiple well documented lines but I just can't seem to connect my William to any of them. I sometimes think he may have been a black sheep. His wife was from a Mennonite family and I think he at some point was involved in alcohol (one way or another) I've found applications for a saloon keeper's license under his name right there in Mt. Joy. I also found he had an altercation with someone and ended up in Lancaster county jail. This was around the beginning of the civil war so I'm not sure how it all relates. One day maybe I'll figure it out!
RE: P.S. I just read your profile... Thanks for you kind words, I try my best... I usually back and follow up to see if the bios I send get posted. I spend too much time researching to throw the data away. Some are happy to get data, others not so much...go figure. I appreciate your offer on Mary - I see you have a few Saylors but I'm still trying to connect mine that were in the Florin/ Mount Joy area. Looks like you are in my "sweet spot" area. Thanks for posting the bio :-)
Jacob Wesley Simmons #76824840 Hi Wendy, I would like to request you delete the 2 pics for the obit on the above memorial. I have typed it out and place in the BIO of his page. Also could you please delete the pic of his sons gravestone, John W. Simmons. The photo has been placed on John's memorial already. Thanks a lot for your help.
