Obit for Nancy FULTON Thompson, 26 June 1885
Died-Mrs. Nancy Thompson, wife of Joseph Thompson, near Corydon, Iowa died on the evening of Wednesday the 17th of June, 1885, of consumption.

The deceased was born in Clarion Co., Pennsylvania, the 5th of November, 1815 and was the second daughter of James and Jane Fulton. At the age of sixteen, immediately after the death of her mother, she became directress of her father's large family until her marriage to Mr. Thompson on the 24th of May 1836. After their marriage they lived three years in her native county, then removed to Jefferson county, where they resided until the spring of 1855, when she with her husband and family, returned to Clarion county; and into the fall came to Birmingham in Van Barin county, Ia., where the family spent the winter; and removed to Wayne county the following spring arriving in Corydon the 27th of March, 1856.

Mrs. Thompson was the mother of eleven children, eight sons and three daughters. Three of the former died in Pennsylvania and the two oldest died in the Union army, during the Rebellion. Thus of the tree sons she surrounded to the cause of her country, but only one returned to greet her after peace was restored and the Union saved. At the early age of sixteen sister Thompson professed in all her earthly troubles she sought comfort in the word of God.

In her last sickness she suffered extreme pain much of trhe time which she bore with Christian patience and fortitude for several months.

She took great pleasure and comfort in conversations with her Christian friends about the Christian's experiences and prospect, confidently believing that that she should soon enter into "the rest that remains for the people of God."

And to having solemnly charged her children to live in the service of the Savior, that they may meet her in Heaven. She peacefully fell asleep in Jesus, leaving her aged companion, three sons and three daughters to mourn her absence; but not _as these that have no hope. "__" Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; Yes saith the spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them."
J.P. Birknole (sp?)
Corydon, Iowa, Iowa, June 26, 1885
