PREFACE. I2t1i03 



^ 



Nothing in this world is more commendable than to 

perpetuate the good deeds of those who have passed 

away; to know the part they have taken in the nation's 

history, the sacrifices they have made of life and trea- 

^ sure in the building and sustaining of the state and. the 

\:^ cause of civilization. Such knowledge of one's forebears 

S^ stimulates us to better and greater work and purer and 

;^ better lives. Those who have studied the genealogy of 

-w families well know that very few families are always 

n;\ great and that nearly all families are sometimes great. 

We hope and trust that this work will tend to strengthen 

the ties of kinship that should always exist between 

both families and nations. 

The record of public services of the family noted in 
this book is given with no partiality so far as the 
authors have knowledge of such services. The widely 
scattered survivors could not all be reached promptly 
and did not respond very promptly — at times not at all — 
and we have done the best we could with the data avail- 
able; and while we feel that it should be better we be- 
lieve that it is good. 

The work of compiling the family genealogy was 
begun several years ago by Albert Thompson (No. 695), 
of Philadelphia, son of John Praul and Lydia (Knipe) 
Thompson, and up to the time of his death he devoted 
much time to the work of tracing out the descendants 
of Elizabeth (McGraudy) Thompson and of John Wil- 
son, the Scotch progenitors of the two families under 
consideration and gathering together in annual reunions 
the surviving descendants. After a lapse of several 
years the work was resumed by R. Thompson Engart, 
Howard Thompson, Caroline McClusky and Elizabeth 
Pettit and a committee was appointed at one of the 
family reunions to get the manuscript collections into 
tangible shape. This committee finally decided to 
place the manuscript in the hands of Warren S. Ely, of 
Doylestown, Penna., Librarian and Curator of the 



III 



Bucks County Historical Society, to amplify in the 
matter of personal data of the early members of the 
family and to edit and transcribe the whole data for 
publication. With the loyal assistance of Mrs. Lydia 
M. E. Thompson, Secretary of the association, and other 
members of the family, the matter was gotten into shape, 
and is now published and submitted to the subscribers

EDITORIAL COMMENT. 



When the mss. of the genealogical data collected and 
compiled by the family association was turned over to me 
I was amazed at its completeness in the matter of dates. 
There was, however, a great dearth of personal data in re- 
lation to the migrations of the different branches of the 
family and in most cases absolutely no personal history — 
not even their residence was given. Realizing that it was 
necessary to give the descendants some glimpse of the 
lives lived by their forbears, in order to make the book 
an interesting one, my first effort was to secure some per- 
sonal data in reference to each individual. 

The wide range of territory to be covered made this 
task a difficult one, and the result is not all that we might 
desire. Appeals to the present representatives in differ- 
ent states for personal data of their immediate ancestors 
frequently met with cordial ansAvers and assistance, but 
about as frequently were ignored. However, we feel, as 
the publication committee have above stated, "We have 
done the best we could * * * and, while we feel it should 
be better, we believe it is good," and tru.st that what we 
have been able to furnish in the way of family history, 
may be well received and cherished by the descendants of 
the worthy people whose lives are herein chronicled.

THE WILSON FAMILY. 



THE WILSON FAMILY. 



INTRODUCTORY. 



For the earliest record of the Wilson family we are 
indebted to Mr. Gordon Fraser, of Wigtown, Scotland, 
Author of Historical and Descriptive Sketches of the 
Royal Burgh of Wigtown, Scotland. 

In his description of the Churchyard of Wigtown, and 
in speaking of the graves of the Martyrs he says : 
Though "not fortified either with the courage, or the 
gray mare of Tam O'Shanter," (Referring to Sheriff 
Napier's "Case for the Crown," page 139, it seems that 
Napier tried to prove that these women never suffered 
Martyrdom, but were reprieved.) We are not afraid to 
draw near reverently to the objects which possess by far 
the greatest interest in the Churchyard, namely, the 
Martyr's Gravestones. 

They stand a little to the north of the old ruined 
Church. 

Formerly they were placed close to the north wall of 
the old Church — the bodies of the Martyrs having 
probably been interred as indicating that they were 
considered criminals, but when the Church was in course 
of being taken down, the tombstones were removed, for 
their safety, a few yards in a northerly direction where 
they now stand. 

The first thing that strikes the visitor is the antiquated 
style of lettering, on these stones, being most undoubt- 
edly that of the period of the Revolution, as it is evident 
by a comparison with other stones of the same era. All 
the letters are capitals, and in the antique connected 
method. 

The largest of three stones is that which commemo- 
rates the Martyrdom of Margaret Wilson. It is a thin, 
flat stone resting upon four pillars about a foot high.

The exact orthography and position of the words in- 
scribed we have copied from a photograph obtained by 
Lieut. J. H. Simpson as taken from the stone.

Margaret McLachland, an aged lady, (sixty-three) 
and Margaret Wilson, were drowned by Sentence of the 
Public authorities in the waters of the Bladnoch, near 
Wigton, on the 11th of May, 1685, because they refused 
to forsake the principles of the Scottish Keformation, 
and to take the Government Oath abjuring the right 
of the people to resist the tyrrany of their Rulers. 

Upon the eleventh day of May, 1685, these two women, 
Margaret McLachland and Margaret Wilson were 
brought forth to execution. 

They did put the old woman first into the water, and 
when the water was overflowing her asked Margaret 
Wilson what she thought of her in that case : She 
answered, what do I see but Christ wrestling there; 
Think ye that we are the sufferers? No, it is Christ in 
us for He sends none a warfare on their own charges. 
Margaret Wilson sang Psalm XXV from the 7th verse, 
read the eighth chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, 
and did pray, and then the water covered her. But 
before her breath was quite gone they pulled her up and 
held her till she could speak, and then asked her if she 



INTRODUCTORY. 3 

would 'pray for the king. She answered that she 
wished the salvation of all men but the damnation of 
none. Some of her relations being on the place cried 
out, she is willing to conform, being desirous to save her 
life at any rate, upon which Major "Winram offered the 
oath of abjuration to her, either to swear it or return to 
the waters. She refused it saying, ''I will not. I am 
one of Christ's children, let me go." And then they re- 
turned her into the water where she finished her war- 
fare, being a virgin Martyr of eighteen years of age, 
suffering death for her refusing to swear the oath of 
abjuration and hear the curates.

THE COVENANTERS. 

By Elizabeth Oaks Smith. 

(Two women, Margaret Maclachlin and Margaret "Wil- 
son, the former an aged widow and the latter a girl of 
eighteen, were sentenced by James Graham of Claver- 
house, to be drowned or abjure their religion. They 
refused and were carried to a spot which the Solway 
overflows twice a day, and were fastened to stakes 
fixed in the sand between high and low water mark. 

The elder sufferer was placed near the advancing 
flood in the hope that her last agonies might terrify the 
younger into submission; but the courage of the sur- 
vivor was sustained by an enthusiasm as lofty as any 
that is recorded in martyrology. She prayed and sang 
verses of Psalms till the waters choked her voice.) 
Macauley's History of England. 

Two Margarets sat at close of day 

With knitting sheath at side, 
And sung and talked as women may, 

And listened to the tide 
As landward turned the wild Solway, 

And from his caverns cried. 

Up Margery sprang with bounding feet, 

And held her bright hair back 
And listened: for a horseman fleet 

Nor whip nor spur was lack — 
Came dashing through the foaming sheet. 

Nor pausing on his track. 

He cried, "The Graham's at the ford — 
Thy lover lieth dead— 



THE WILSON FAMILY. 

Fly, Fly, from Shot and Sword:" 
A blood red scarf aloft he spread, 

And Margery, at the word 
Knew all her doom was said. 

The Solway roareth hoarse and loud. 

The moon from out the wrack 
Has thrust aside the murky cloud. 

And gleams of steel flings back; 
For on the wet sands stands a crowd 

That makes the night more black. 

The Solway heaves his briny tide, 

And there, within its roar, 
The Margarets stand them, side by side, 

The Claverhouse before. 
Pale is the matron, pale the bride, 

But steadfast as of yore. 

With scoffing jest and smiling lip, 

The Graham bent his head, 
And sat his horse with hands on hip; 

"Repeat the prayer," he said, 
"I, fain those pretty lips would sip 

Were I not soldier bred." 

"Now God thee save from deadly sin:" 

The aged matron spoke, 
"Not e'en a worthless life to win 

Can covenant be broke, 
We bow unto the truth within. 

And know no other yoke. 

O daughter Margery: fear thee not, 

The pang will soon be o'er, 
O, steadfast child: a glorious lot 

To die amid this roar 
Remembering Christ, who for us wrought 

Through pangs a thousand more." 

The Solway fiercer breaks and roars. 

The cold moon shineth clear. 
And onward as the Solway pours, 

His voice is drowned, to hear 
A holy hymn along his shores, 

As from another sphere. 

The moon looked down where mid the sea 
Old Margaret's white hair shone. 

The moon looked down where fair and free 
Sweet Margery's locks are strown: 

And strong men tremble, haunch and knee, 
To hear the waters moan. 

But Graham sat his champing steed, 
That pawed the oozy shore. 



INTEODUCTORY. 5 

And saw the billows in their greed 

Heave landward more and more, 
And whitened hair and dark sea-weed 

Tell that the pang is o'er. 

Nor moved he lip, nor moved he hand, 

As higher, higher grew 
The raging waters to the stand, 

And back his horse he drew. 
While Margery's voice exultant, grand, 

Swelled all the turmoil through. 

The Solway roars at turn of tide 

A thousand years the same; 
The Solway to the cold moon cried 

A deed too black to name, 
On that dread night the Margarets died 

Staked where the low tide came. 

Ere flood of tide, aghast men note 

The Solway sweeping on. 
Upon his breast no speck nor mote 

To tell what hath been done, 
' A wild sea-bird, with open throat, 

Sails over it alone. 

Two ghastly shapes, at ebb of tide, 

Rise slowly to the sight. 
And pitying sea-weeds strive to hide 

The work of yester-night. 
Ah: Sea and earth such wrongs must bide, 

"Wrongs for great God to right. 

The following is the account of the martyrdom of 
these individiTals as given by Woodrow in his History of 
the Suffering of the Church of Scotland, and based upon 
the records of the local Church Courts: — 

"Upon the 11th of May we meet with the barborous 
and wicked execution of two excellent women near Wig- 
ton, Margaret McLauchlan and Margaret "Wilson. His- 
tory scarce affords a parallel to this in all its circum- 
stances, and therefore I shall give it at the greater 
length, and the rather, because the Advocates for the 
cruelty of this period, and our Jacobites, have the impu- 
dence, some of them to deny, and others to extenuate 
this matter of fact, which can be fully evidenced by 
many living witnesses. And I shall mostly give my nar- 
rative of it from an account I have from the Rev. Mr. 
Rowan, now with the Lord, late minister of Penningham 
where Margaret Wilson lived, who was at pains to have 
its circumstances fully vouched by witnesses, whose at- 
testations are in my hands; and I shall add, to make the 
account more full, the sufferings of the said Margaret's 



6 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

relations, though not unto death, as coming in natively 
enough here, and what will hand me in to what I have 
most in view. 

"Gilbert Wilson, father of the said Margaret, lived in 
Glenveruoch, belonging to the laird of Castle Stewart, 
in the Parish of Penningham, and Shire of Wigton, and 
was every way conform to Episcopacy : and his wife, 
without anything to be objected against her, as to her 
regularity. They were in good circumstances as to the 
world, and had a great stock upon a good ground, and 
therefore were the fitter prey for the persecutors, if they 
could reach them. 

"Their children, to be sure, not from their education, 
but a better principle, would by no means conform, or 
hear the episcopal incumbent. This was a good handle 
to the persecutors ; so they were searched for but fled to 
the hills, bogs and caves, though they were scarce of the 
age that made them obnoxious to the law. Meanwhile 
their parents are charged at the highest peril not to 
harbour them, supply them, or speak to them, or see 
them without informing against them, that they might 
be taken, and their father was fined for his children's 
alleged irregularities and opinions, which he had no 
share in, and harrassed by frequent quarterings of the 
soldiers, sometimes an hundred of them upon him at 
once, who lived at discretion, upon anything in the 
house or field belonging to him. 

"Thus troubles continuing upon him for some years 
together, with his attendance upon courts at Wigton 
almost once a week, thirteen miles distant from his 
house, his going to Edinburg, and other harrassings, 
brought him under exceeding great losses. As a modest 
calculation they were about five thousand marks, and 
all for no action or principle of his own, for he was en- 
tirely conformist. He died some six or eight years ago 
in great poverty, though one of the most substantial 
countrymen in that country. And his wife (1711) lives, 
a very aged widow, upon the charity of friends. His 
son, Thomas AVilson, a youth of sixteen years of age, 
this February 1685, was forced to the mountains and 
continued wandering till the revolution, at which time he 
went to the army and bore arms under King William in 
Flanders, and after that in the Castle of Edinburg. 

"He never had a farthing from his parents to enter 
that ground which they possessed, but having got to- 



INTRODUCTORY. 7 

gether somewhat by his own industry, lives now in his 
father's room and is ready to attest all I am writing. 

"It is Gilbert's two daughters who fell into the 
hands of the persecutors, Margaret Wilson of eighteen 
years of age, and Agnes Wilson, a child not thirteen 
years, that have led me to this account. Agnes, the 
youngest, was condemned with her sister by those merci- 
less judges, but her father obtained a liberation from 
prison, under a bond of 100 pounds sterling to present 
her when called. However Gilbert had to go to Edinburg 
before she was let out ; but to all onlookers and pos- 
terity, it will remain an unaccountable thing to sentence 
a child of thirteen years to death, for not hearing and 
not swearing. In the beginning of this year, those two 
sisters for sometime were obliged to abscond and wander 
through Carrick, Galloway and Nithsdale with their 
brothers and some others. 

"After the universal severities slackened a little at 
King Charles death, the two sisters ventured to go to 
Wigton to see some of their suffering acquaintances 
there, particularly Margaret McLauchlan, of whom just 
now: 

"When they came to Wigton, there was an acquain- 
tance of theirs, Patrick Stewart, whom they took to be a 
friend and well wisher, but he was not so and betrayed 
them ; being in their company and seeking an occasion 
against them he proposed drinking the king's health, 
this they modestly declined, upon which he went out, 
informed against them, and brought in a party of sol- 
diers, and seized them. As if they had been great male- 
factors, they were put in the thieves hole and after they 
had been there some time they were removed to the prison 
where Margaret McLauchlan was, whom I come next to 
give some account of. 

"This woman was about sixty-three years of age, relict 
of John Mulligan, carpenter, a tenant in the parish of 
Kirkinner, in the Shire of Galloway, in the farm of 
Drumjargan, belonging to Colonel Vans of Barnbarroch: 
She was a country woman of more than ordinary knowl- 
edge, discretion and prudence, and for many years of 
singular piety and devotion : She would take none of the 
oaths now pressed upon women as well as men : neither 
would she desist from the duties she took to be incum- 
bent upon her, hearing Presbyterian ministers when 



8 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

Providence gave opportunity, and joining with her 
Christian friends and acquaintances in prayer, and 
supplying her relations and acquaintances when in 
straits, though persecuted. It is a jest to suppose her 
guilty of rising in arms and rebellion, though indeed it 
was a part of her indictment which she got in common 
form now used. For those great crimes and no other, 
she was seized some while ago upon the Lord's day, when 
at family worship in her own house, which was now an 
ordinary season for apprehending honest people. 

"She was imprisoned after she had suffered much in 
her goods and crop before she was apprehended. In 
prison she was very roughly dealt with, and had neither 
fire nor bed to lie upon, and had very little allowed her 
to live on. 

"Jointly with Margaret McLaughlan or McLauchlison 
these two young sisters after many months were taken 
to corrupt them, and make them swear the oath now im- 
posed, which they steadily refused, were brought to 
their trial before the laird of Lagg, Colonel David Gra- 
ham, Sheriff, Major Windrum, Captain Strachan, and 
Provost Cultrain, who gave all the three an indictment 
for rebellion at Bothwell Bridge, Ayr's IMoss and 
being present at twenty field conventicles. No matter 
how false and caluminous poor peoples' indictments 
were. None of the pannels had ever been within many 
miles of Bothwell or Ayr's Moss; Agnes Wilson could be 
but eight years of age at Ayr's Moss, and her sister but 
about twelve or thirteen, and it was impossible they 
could have any access to those risings. 

"Margaret McLauchlan was as free as they were. All 
the three refused the abjuration oath, and it was unac- 
countable it should be put to one of them. The assize 
bring them in guilty, and the judges pronounce their 
sentence ; that upon the 11th inst. all the three should be 
tied to stakes fixed within the flood-mark in the water of 
the Bladnoch, near Wigton, where the sea flows at high 
water, there to be drowned. We have seen that Agnes 
Wilson was got out by her father upon a bond of an 
hundred pounds sterling which I hear, upon her non- 
production, was likewise exacted. 

"Margaret Wilson's friends used all means to prevail 
with her to take the abjuration oath, and to engage to 



INTRODUCTORY. 9 

hear the curate, but she stood fast in her integrity and 
would not be shaken. 

"They received their sentence with a great deal of 
composure, and cheerful countenance, reckoning it their 
honour to suffer for Christ and his truth. During her 
imprisonment Margaret Wilson wrote a large letter to 
her relations, full of a deep and affecting sense of 
God's love to her soul, and an entire resignation to the 
Lord's disposal. She likewise added a vindication of her 
refusing to save her life by taking the abjuration and 
engaging to conformity; against both she gives argu- 
ments with a solidity and judgment far above one of her 
years and education. 

"The barbarous sentence was executed the foresaid 
day, May 11th and the two women were brought from 
"Wigton, with a numerous crowd of spectators to so ex- 
traordinary an execution. Major Windram with some 
soldiers guarded them to the place of execution. The 
old woman's stake was a good way in beyond the other, 
and she was first despatched in order to terrify the 
other to a compliance with such oaths and conditions as 
they required, but in vain, for she adhered to her prin- 
ciples with an unshaken steadfastness. When the water 
was overflowing her fellow-martyr some about Margaret 
Wilson asked her what she thought of the other now 
strugglin with pangs of death, she answered. 'What 
do I see but Christ, in one of his members, wrestling 
there. Think you that we are the sufferers? No, it is 
Christ in us, for he sends none a warfare upon their own 
charges.' 

"When Margaret Wilson was at the stake, she sang 
the 25th Psalm from verse 7th downward a good way, 
and read the 8th Chapter to the Romans with a great 
deal of cheerfulness and then prayed. While at prayer 
the water covered her, but before she was quite dead, 
they pulled her up, and held her out of the water till 
she was recovered and able to speak, and then by Major 
Windram 's orders she was asked if she would pray for 
the king. She answered, she wished the salvation of 
all men and the damnation of none ; one deeply affected 
with the death of the other, and her case, said — 'Dear 
Margaret, say God save the King, say God save the King. ' 
'God save him if he will, for it is his salvation I desire.' 
Whereupon sume of her relation near by, desirous to 
have her life spared if possible, called out to Major 



10 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

Windram, 'Sir, she hath said it, she hath said it,' where- 
upon the Major came near and offered her the abjura- 
tion, charging her instantly to swear it, otherwise return 
to the water. 

"Most deliberately she refused and said, 'I will not. I 
am one of Christ's children, let me go.' Upon which 
she was thrust down again into the water, where she 
finished her course with joy. She died a virgin-martyr 
about eighteen years of age, and both of them suffered 
precisely upon refusing conformity, and the abjuration 
oath, and were evidently innocent of anything worthy of 
death, and since properly they suffered upon refusing 
the abjuration, for refusing of which such multitudes 
were cut off in the fields with less ceremony, and at the 
time when these murders were so common, I have 
brought them in here. 

" It is of more importance to observe, that in the coun- 
cil registers, since I wrote what is above, I find what fol- 
lows : 

" 'April last, Margaret Wilson and Margaret Mc- 
Lauchlison, under sentence of death pronounced by the 

justices, are continued till and the lords of 

his Majesty's privy council recommend it to the secre- 
taries to procure their remission.' 

"The day to which they are reprieved is blank in the 
records; but I may safely suppose it would be for a 
longer day than the 11th of May, there being scarcely 
time betwixt the 30th of April and that, to get a return 
from the secretaries. Indeed at this time, a recom- 
mendation from the council for a remission, was looked 
on as a material pardon, and if I may conjecture, Gilbert 
Wilson, when as we heard, after the sentence upon all the 
three, made an application at Edinburgh, seems to have 
prevailed as to all three, and the case was extremely 
favorable. If matters stand thus the people of Wigton 
are deeply guilty and had no powers for what they did, 
and the death of these persons was what the council 
ought to have prosecuted them for. 

"As we have seen, a younger sister of Margaret Wil- 
son, aged about thirteen, was tried and condemned with 
the other two females, but her father succeeded in bring- 
ing her out of the hands of her captors for the sum of 
one hundred pounds sterling. 

"It would appear that Margaret McLauchlan, while 



INTRODUCTORY. 11 

in prison, petitioned the Privy Council for a recall of the 
sentence of death passed upon her, and that Margaret 
Wilson's father exerted himself to obtain a like reversal 
of the sentence against his daughter. These means suc- 
ceeded so far as to obtain from the Lords of the Privy 
Council a reprieve in the f oUov^ing terms : 

" 'Edinburgh, April 30th, 1685. The Lords of his 
Majesty's Privy Coiuicil do hereby reprieve the execution 
of the sentence of death pronounced by the Justices 
against Margaret Wilson and Margaret McLauchlison 
until day of and discharge the magis- 
trates of Edinburgh from putting of the said sentence to 
execution against them until the foresaid day; and 
recommend the said Margaret Wilson and Margaret 
McLauchlison to the Lord's Secretaries of State, to in- 
terpose with his most Sacred Majesty for the royal re- 
mission to them.' 

"From the fact that the above reprieve mentions that 
the magistrates of Edinburg were discharged from ex- 
ecuting the sentence against the two women, Sheriff 
Napier concludes that the women must have been re- 
moved to Edinburg. It is more reasonable to suppose, 
as do Dr. Stewart and others, that the inserting of the 
word Edinburgh in the document was a clerical error, 
and the word Wigtown was intended and should have 
been written. 

There is another very probable — perhaps the most 
probable — explanation of this little difficulty, and it is 
this, the word Edinburgh may have been written with the 
design of frustrating the reprieve — of killing time, and 
allowing, by the confusion it may be supposed to have 
caused, the original sentence of the Commissionrs at 
Wigtown on the 13th of April to be carried out. 

What did the Privy Council, or any other tools of the 
despotic, tyrannical and persecuting Government of the 
time care for the lives of two obscure females immured 
in the prison of Wigtown: No more than they eared for 
the preservation of the records of their bloody doings, 
for it is noteworthy that scarcely a shred of the docu- 
ments of their sanguinary transactions has come down to 
us. Instead of the advocates of the non-martyrdom, and 
of the Government of the times, boasting of the meagre 
nature of documentary evidence. Supporting the 
drovraing of the two women, they ought rather to be 



12 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

ashamed to buttress up a government which itself seemed 
so ashamed of its transactions in the persecution times 
that it took scrupulous care that no record of their mis- 
deeds should survive the time of their enaction. 

The following, which appeared in the Dumfries Courier 
of 20th March, 1681, is interesting: 

"I Margaret "Wilson residing in Wigtown, do hereby 
solemnly and sincerely declare, that the late Mr. William 
McAdam, of Woodside, called upon me soon after I came 
to Wigtown, and read over the annexed paper, and said 
that his grandfather gave it to him, saying that it was 
a copy of the petition written by himself, signed by him 
and others and forwarded to Parliament, against Sir 
Eobert Grierson of Lagg as stated therein, and that his 
grandfather was married to one of the Wilsons of Glen- 
vernock. ' ' 

"(Signed) MAEGARET WILSON." 

"Declared before me at Wigtown this 14th day of 
March, 1681. ''(Signed) THOMAS MURRAY. 

"Sheriff Substitute of Wigtownshire." 

The following is the paper referred to in the above 
declaration : 

"Memorandum anent ane petition to be presented to 
the Parliament against Sir Robert Grierson of Lagge. 

"Sir Robert having in the late evill times the command 
of several troops of dragoons and being Steuart of the 
Steuartry of Kirkcudbright, does without any process or 
sentence of law, cause comite severall barbrous and in- 
human murders, and that upon no other account but up- 
on church irregularities, and does execute his fury 
against this poor people in such a manner as cannot well 
be expressed. A particular account of all his barbari- 
ties is not designed in this place, but only such of them 
as are most notour and deserve best the consideration of 
the honarble states of Parliament, which are as follows : 

"1st. Sir Robert after he had apprehended two women 
to wit, Margaret Lauchlison and Margaret Wilson — upon 
no other account than for alleged nonconformity, did 
without any conviction or sentence, cause bind them to 
a stake within the seamark at Wigtowne till the flood re- 
turning drowned them both, and that, without any con- 
sideration of the age of the one or the youth of the other, 



INTEODUCTORY. 13 

and the said Margaret Lauchlison being above 63 years 
of age, and the other 18 years old. This was done in 
the month of May, 1685." 

Incidents in connection with the Martyrdom. 

The following are from Sir Andrew Agnew's ad- 
mirable "History of the Hereditary Sheriffs of Gallo- 
way. ' ' 

CLEPPIE BELL. 

"Tradition is strong, clear and unvarying upon the 
chief points of the martyrdom (of the two women). 
There are many episodes attaching to the tale, which no 
doubt are very absurd, yet the fact of their being firmly 
believed in an age when miraculous judgments were ex- 
pected to follow crime is an additional proof of the no- 
toriety of the drowning scene. Of such are the follow- 
ing: One of the constables who fastened the women to 
the stakes was called 'Bell.' He had showed himself very 
unfeeling, and when asked afterwards how the poor crea- 
tures behaved in the awful struggle when the sea roared 
and foamed about them, answered jocularly, 'O, they 
just clepped roun' the stobs like partrons and aye pray- 
ed.' Soon after Bell's wife was brought to bed, when 
the howdie exclaimed. 'The baimie's clepped,' that is, 
the fingers grew firmly together. Another child was 
born, and yet another, and another, and each little 
wretch in turn was clepped, the most incredulous became 
convinced of the reality of the judgment. There are 
persons in Wigtown still alive, who will assure the in- 
quirer that they have seen descendents of this family 
afflicted with the hereditary deformity. 

"And more, we have been gravely assured that a dis- 
tant female relative in the county, in whom the curse 
appeared to have worn out — she not being clepped her- 
self — removed to a distant parish, and there not long 
ago, giving birth to a child, was greeted by the same 
unwelcome cry, 'The baimie's clepped.' " 

(We have a female relative, aged 92 years, who as- 
sures us that she has seen three of "Cleppie Bell's" des- 
cendents in the district, who were all afflicted with this 
deformity in the fingers or toes. One of them who was 
a ploughman, clutched the handle of his plough with his 
welded fingers on the one side and his thumb on the 
other.) 



14 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

THE TOWN OFFICER'S PUNISHMENT. 
A similar tradition tells that another town officer, a 
sergent, who was an active party at the execution, help- 
ed to raise up the half-drowned women to receive a use- 
less offer of the test, and that on their refusal he pressed 
their heads down with his halbert, crying with savage 
glee, ''There, tak' anither drink o't, my hearties:" He 
returned safe from the murderous job, but troubled by 
an extraordinary thirst, he drank, but his thirst was 
unquenchable. If going on an errarnd, his unnatural 
craving obliged him to carry a huge pitcher on his back ; 
if he crossed a stream, even before ribald companions, 
he was irresistibly impelled to kneel down, and, like the 
men chosen by Gideon, to lap water like a dog. Medicine 
was tried but with no effect. As the wretch wondered 
about the country, bearing his retributive burden, now 
turning to curse a group of urchins who would follow to 
mock his sufferings, now sprawling to moisten his swol- 
len tongue in the filthy gutter : even his old associates 
shrank from him in horror, while the people, who had 
sympathized with his poor victims, pointed him out as 
the example of a man who had directly dared the ven- 
geance of Providence, and whose eternal sufferings had 
begun. 

FATE OF THE INFORMER ON THE MARTYRS. 

"The name of the man (Patrick Stuart) by whose in- 
formation the women were arrested is remembered, and 
his memory execrated still: his deseendents are reduced 
to poverty: not long since, one of them, getting into an 
altercation with a person in Wigtown, was thus taimted 
publicly, — "I wudna like tae hae had a forbear who be- 
trayed the martyrs; I wudna be com'd o' sic' folk:' " 

During the year 1858 the people of Wigtown erected 
a monument to the memory of the Martyrs. The spot 
selected was the Wind.vhill, the highest point of the hill 
on which the town stands. It is a handsome, chaste- 
looking obelisk, terminating in a cinerary urn, and was 
erected at a cost of 200 pounds. 

The foundation stone was laid by James Dodds, Esq., 
Solicitor, London, in the presence of a vast crowd, whom 



INTRODUCTORY. 15 

the interesting ceremony had drawn together from the 
town and district. 

The following is the inscription on the slab of the 
monument facing the north : 

This Monument 
has been erected 
in memory of the noble army of Martyrs in 
Galloway and other parts of Scotland, by 
whom, during the age of persecution our 
Religion and Liberties, as now established 
were secured 
and 
as a lesson to posterity never to 
lose or abuse those glorious privileges 
planted by their labours, rooted in their 
Sufferings, and watered with their blood. 

On the west tablet we read: 

A general desire having been manifested to 

commemorate by some suitable Monument the 

Piety, Constancy and Courage 

of the Scottish Martyrs, 

especially those whose ashes repose 

in the Churchyard of Wigtown, 

a Committee of Gentlemen of the district 

was appointed to carry out this object; 

and a considerable fund being raised 

by public subscription and otherwise, 

the present Monument was erected in the year 

1858. 

The south side repeats the inscription on the tomb- 
stone of Margaret "Wilson in the Churchyard. 

The inscription on the east side is : 

Margaret Wilson, aged 18, daughter 

of a farmer in Glenvernock, 

and 

Margaret McLauchlan, aged 63, tenant in 

the farm of Drumjargon, both in this County, 

were drowned by sentence of the public authorities 

in the waters of Bladnoch, near this place, 

on the 11th of May 1685 

because they refused to forsake the principles 

of the Scottish Reformation, and to take the 

Government oath abjuring the right of the 
people to resist the tyranny of their rulers; 

also 

William Johnston, gardner, and John Milroy, 

chapman in Fintilloch; and Gilbert Walker, 

servant in Kirkila, all in this County, were 

summarily executed in the town of Wigtown in 

the same year and for the same cause. 

The following poem, entitled "The Two Margarets" is 
from Dr. Longmuir's little book. 



16 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

What Havock's hounds in Scotland's "killing time," 
Deep stained her heather with her martyrs blood; 

Then social worship was a civil crime, 
That filled the dungeon, and abashed the flood. 

Two lustrous pearls enrich Immanuel's crown, 
As these two Margarets, joined the martyr train; 

What though a tyrant's tool their bodies drown 
Better they die than Jesus cease to reign. 

That Widow cleaves to Him who proved her stay. 
When the fond arm on which she trusted failed; 

That Maiden, budding in life's dewy May, 
Before oppression's frown has never quailed. 

They toss the corded matron to the tide. 
And ruthless halberts bruise her bosom faint; 

"What see I there?" the martyr maid replied 
"But Jesus wrestling in His faithful Saint:" 

What dreads the Crown from those your troopers crush? 

What fears the Court from female age and youth? 
Will Popish power in Bladnech's billows hush 

The claim of Freedom and the voice of Truth? 

She reads, — "No terrors that our path beset. 
Shall e'er divide us from our Saviour's love:" 

Then sings,— "My faults of youth O Lord, forget, 
And guide the lowly to Thy home above." 

The rush of Solway chokes the voice of praise. 
That asks in triumph, "Death, where is they sting?" 

Her drooping head above the waves they raise. 
And all entreat to pray — God save the King. 

"God save him, if He will," she meekly sighs, 
"I never wished my fellow-creature woe:" 

"She's said it, sir, she's said it:" Friendship cries, 
"Oh, cut the cords and let the maiden go!" 

The captious oath resounds in Windram's roar. 
That bends the conscience to Oppression's sway: 

"No! let his child to Jesus' bosom soar:" 
A plunge — and Bladnoch clasps her beauteous clay. 

Matron and maid, who scorned the Tyrant's cord, 
Your blood-writ names on hist'ry's page shall beam; 

While Scotland's shield resists aggression's sword. 
As Solway's flood repels the Bladnoch's stream. 

Scotland, the foe no more a lion roars, 
And slakes his savage thirst in martyrs' blood. 

But, like the tide, he scales thy tranquil shores. 
And drowns the sleeper in con-uption's flood. 



INTRODUCTORY. 17 

Hence Sabbath traffic crowds thine iron way; 

Incest attempts to stain thy statute book; 
Intemp'rance staggers in the light of day, 

And unbelief assumes religion's look. 

In concluding the subject of the Martyrs the author 
of the History of the Royal Burgh of Wigton says: "We 
would take occasion to say that it is a great pity that 
their grave stones should be without a railed enclosure 
with gate attached. The spot might be inexpensively en- 
closed in such a manner and have flowers to adorn it. 
Assuredly these stones are the greatest objects of inter- 
est in the Burgh to visitors ; and their preservation from 
injury by accident or otherwise is much to be desired. 
That they are worthy of such care, we know none of our 
readers will deny, and we are equally sure that "Wigton- 
ians both at home and abroad, require only a hint in 
order to contribute of their means toward the protection 
of our dearest local treasures." 

THE MAIDEN MARTYR. 
In Scotland. 

A troop of soldiers waited at the door, 
A crowd of people gathered in the street. 
Aloof a little from them bared sabres gleamed 
And flashed into their faces. Then the door 
Was opened, and two women meekly stepped 
Into the sunshine of the sweet May noon 
Out of the prison. One was weak and old 
A woman full of tears, and full of woes. 
The other was a maiden in her morn. 
And they were one in name, and one in faith 
Mother and daughter in the bond of Christ, 
That bound them closer than the ties of blood. 

The troop moved on, and down the sunny street. 
The people followed ever falling back 
As in their faces flashed the naked blades 
But in the midst the women meekly went. 
As if they too, were walking, side by side. 
Up to God's house on some still Sabbath morn 
Only they were not clad for Sabbath day. 
But as they went about their daily tasks. 
They went to prison, and they went to death 
Upon their Master's service. 

On the shore 
The troopers halted, all the shining sands 
Lay bare and glistening, for the tide had 
Drawn back to its fartherest margin's weedy mark, 
And each succeeding wave, with flash and curve 
That seemed to mock the sabres on the shore, 
Drew nearer by a handbreadth. It will be 



18 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

A long day's work murmered those murderous men 
As they slacked rein. The leader of the troops 
Dismounted, and the people passing near 
Then heard the pardon proffered with the oath 
Renouncing and abjuring part with all 
The prosecuted covenated folk. 
But both refused the oath, because they said 
"Unless with Christ's dear servants we have part, 
We have no part with Him." 

On this they took the elder Margaret and led her out 

Over the sliding sands, the weedy sludge, 

The pebly snoals, far out, and fastened her 

Unto the fartherest stake, already reached 

By every rising wave, and left her there: 

And as the waves crept about her feet she prayed 

"That He would firm uphold her in their midst, 

Who holds them in the hollow of His hand." 



The tide flowed in, and up and down the shore 
There paced the provost and the Laird of Lagg — 
Grim Grierson — with Windham and with Graham: 
And the rude soldiers jesting with their coarse oaths 
As in the midst the maiden meekly stood 
Waiting her doom, delayed; said "she would 
Turn before the tide — seek refuge in their arms 
From the chill woes." But ever to her lips 
There came the wondrous words of life and peace: 
"If God be for us, who can be against?" 
"Who shall divide us from the love of Christ?" 
"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature." 

From the crowd 
A woman's voice cried a very bitter cry — 
"O Margaret! My bonnie, bonnie Margaret 
Gie in, gie in, my bairnie, dinna ye dron 
Gie in and tak' the oath." 
The tide flowed in and so wore on the sunny 
Afternoon. 



And every fire went out upon the hearth. 

And not a meal was tasted in the town that day. 

And still the tide was flowing in. 

Her mother's voice yet sounding in her ear. 

Then turned young Margaret, face toward the sea 

Where something white was floating — something 

White as the sea-mew that stirs upon the wave — 

But as she looked it sank, then showed again 

Then disappeared, and round the shore 

And stake the tide stood ankle deep. 

Then Grierson 
With cursing vowed that he would wait 
No more, and to the stake the soldier led her 
Down, and tied her hands, and round her 
Slender waist too roughly cast the rope, for 
Windham had eased it, while he whispered 



INTRODUCTORY. 19 

In her ear, "Come take the test, and ye are free." 
And one cried, Margaret, say but God save 
The King" — "God save the King of His great grace," 
She answered, but the oath she would not take. 



And still the tide flowed in 
And drove the people back and silenced them. 
The tide flowed in, and rising to her knees. 
She sang the Psalm, "To Thee I lift my soul." 
The tide flowed in, and rising to her waist, 
To Thee, my God, I lift my soul, she sang. 
The tide flowed in and rising to her throat 
She sang no more, but lifted up her face, 
And there was glory over all the sky 
And there was glory over all the sea 
A flood of glory and the lifted face 
Swam in till it bowed beneath the flood 
And Scotland's maiden Martyr went to God. 



THE WILSON FAMILY. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

(1) JOHN WILSON, whom tradition makes the an- 
cestor of the Wilson family from Antrim, Ireland, which 
was transplanted to Bucks county about 1730 or 1735, 
was a nephew of Gilbert Wilson mentioned in the fore- 
going narrative. 

According to the family tradition, John Wilson was in 
the employ of Gilbert Kennedy, Earl of Cassilis, and 
clandestinely married the daughter, Isabelle Kennedy, 
and fled with her to County Antrim, Ireland, a few miles 
east or southeast of the town of Antrim. Mrs. Wilson 
was invariably known as Lady Isabelle, or Isabelle of 
Cassilis. The Wilson family, however, was an armorial 
family having a coat of arms representing a shield sur- 
mounted by a naked white hand holding a dagger. In 
the background was a half moon and three stars. 

The family cherished traditions of the bravery and 
prowess of their Scottish forbears. One clearly defined 
tradition relates that upon a certain occasion when a ship 
driven on the coast was in danger of being taken by 
pirates or mutineers, the bravery and promptitude of the 
Wilsons saved the vessel and all on board. 

Issue of John and Isabelle (Kennedy) Wilson. 

2. John Wilson, b. about 1710 ; d. 1767 ; m. Jennet Stin- 

son. 

3. Jane Wilson, b. ; d. ; m. John Rainer; no 

further record. 

4. William Wilson, b. ; d. ; m. Christiana John- 

son. They were the grandparents of William 
Wilson, of New Jersey, who married Sarah Wil- 
son, of Buckingham, No. 39. See footnote un- 
der No, 39. 



22 THE WILSON FAIMILY. 

SECOND GENERATION. 

(2) JOHN WILSON, son of John and IsabeUe (Ken- 
nedy) Wilson, born in County Antrim, Ireland about 
1710, married about the year 1735, Jennet Stinson, of 
Four Mile Run, County Antrim, and with her emigrat- 
ed to Pennsylvania, and settled in lower Buckingham, 
Bucks county. The exact date of their arrival is not 
known, but they probably came with the Thompsons and 
a number of other families that settled in Warwick, 
Buckingham, Northampton and Newtown. 

On April 7, 1737, John Wilson secured a warrant for 
125 acres in Buckingham township, along the line of 
Wrightstown toMoiship. This tract was originally sur- 
veyed to Andrew Heath and was so marked on Cutler's 
resurvey of 1703. It adjoined on the southwest the 
Lacey farm originally surveyed to William Perlet, the 
father-in-law of ^ William Lacey, the founder of that 
noted family, and on the northeast abutted on the Ed- 
ward West tract of 1000 acres out of which John Wil- 
son's later farm was surveyed. The tract lies nearly 
midway between the present villages of Wycombe and 
Pineville, and is now owned by Warner C. Thompson. 
Here John Wilson resided for a number of years but 
later took up a tract partly in the John Reynolds and 
partly in the Edward West tract about a mile northeast 
of his first residence. Both of these tracts had been sur- 
veyed by 1700, but the warrantees never appear to have 
claimed or settled on them and they were taken up in 
irregular tracts by settlers, mostly Scotch-Irish including 
the Simpsons, Samples, Kellys and Smiths, who had no 
title but possession. After they had resided thereon for 
near half a century, efforts were made to secure patents 
and this resulted in the case of the Reynolds Tract in 
Escheat proceedings by which the title escheated to the 
state and patents issued to the original settlers thereon. 
In the case of the settlers on the West tract, however, 
they resisted an escheat on the ground they had acquired 
title bj^ adverse possession. A small portion of the 
Wilson farm, however, he purchased of Robert Strettel, 
who had secured a patent for 500 acres in the southeast 
corner of the West tract. 

On this farm of one hundred and seventy-five acres, 
John Wilson lived until his death in February 1767. 
Nothing is known of his place of burial or his age or the 
time of the death of his widow. She was probably of

Jennet (Stinson) Wilson married prior to 1767, Thomas 
Dougherty, of Northampton township of whose history 
little is known except that he was a farmer in North- 
ampton and Buckingham townships. He was a soldier 
in the Revolution being enrolled under Captain, after- 
ward General, John Lacey, in 1775 as a member of the 
Associated Company of Buckingham, (i) He is taxed for 
48 acres of land in Buckingham 1779 luitil and including 
the year of his death, 1784. The list of that year being 
in the nature of a census states that his family consisted 
of fourteen white inhabitants. 

In the year 1785 the property is assessed to Jennet 
Dougherty. Thomas Dougherty died intestate in Buck- 
ingham and letters of Administration were granted to his 
widow. Jennet Dougherty, October 4, 1784; her brother, 
John Wilson, and brother-in-law, William Simpson, be-

upwards of fifty pounds, but on March 12, 1787, peti- 
tioned the Orphans' Court for sale of the forty-nine acres 
in Buckingham of which her husband died siezed setting 
forth that the personal estate was not sufficient for the 
payment of debts, naming among the creditors, John

(6) MARY WILSON, daughter of John and Jennet 
(Stinson) Wilson, bom January 6, 1738, in Buckingham, 
Bucks county, Pennsylvania, married Gaun McGraudy, 
bom 1736, second son of Samuel McGraudy, who came 
from the north of Ireland at about the same date as the 
Wilsons and Thompsons, and settled first in Southamp- 
ton township, where he was living January 9, 1753, 
when a tract of 301 acres of land in AVarwick adjoining 
the Mearns tract was conveyed to him by the heirs of 
George Claj'-poole. His will dated at Pensacola, Province 
of Florida, July 31, 1765, was proved at Philadelphia, 
February 4, 1766. It devised his wife, Margaret, the use 
of the house she now lives in and annuities to be paid by 
his sons, Robert, Gaun and John, to whom was devised 
the Warwick plantation. Samuel probably never lived 
on this plantation ; in a mortgage executed by him and 
his wife, March 15, 1757, his residence is given as South- 
ampton. 

Gaun McGraudy was devised the western end of the 



THIRD GENERATION. 27 

plantation, 150 acres in Warwick township and lived 
thereon until his death on April 16, 1812, at the age of 
seventy-six years. He was a soldier in the Revolution, 
a member of Warwick Associators, August 21, 1775. 
His will registered at Doylestown in Will Book No. 8, p. 
235, directs that his real estate be sold. It gives a libe- 
ral annuity and considerable personal property to his 
wife; three hundred pounds to his son Robert, "he hav- 
ing been with me and worked so long since of legal age," 
and the residue to be divided between his seven children, 
Jane, Margaret, Samuel, John, Robert, Thomas and Isa- 
bella. No mention is made of his eldest daughter, 
Agnes, the first wife of Andrew Meams.

long. He was a member of the Warwick Associated 
Company August 21, 1775, and when the Bucks County 
Committee of Safety had decided to engage in the manu- 
facture of gunpowder he offered them a site with water 
power on his farm. The title of the farm however re-

ingham homestead on the death of his father and spent 
the remainder of his life thereon. He was Lieutenant of 
the Buckingham Company of Associators organized Au- 
gust 21, 1775. He was commissioned Justice of the 
Peace April 7, 1779, and regularly recommissioned until 
about the time of his death. He did a large amount of 
business as attested by his docket now in the possession 
of the Bucks County Historical Society. His office seems 
to have been a favorite Gretna Green as he married 
several hundred couples during his term of office. He 
served as executor, administrator, trustee, etc.. in the 
settlement of a great number of estates and appears to 
have been one of the leading men in the community. 

He married, at Newtown Presbyterian Church, Febru- 
ary 9, 1773, Mary Simpson, bom in Buckingham, Bucks 
county, Pennsylvania, May 29, 1749, daughter of William 
Simpson and Jane his wife. He died July 14, 1811, and 
his wife died October 30, 1822. Both are buried at New- 
town Presbyterian Burying Ground.

(11) ISABELLA WILSON, daughter of John and 
Jennet (Stinson) Wilson, born in Buckingham, Bucks 
county, November 24, 1749, died there September 5, 
1838. She married in 1769, William Simpson, born 1741, 
died May 1, 1825. The following sketch of Isabella 
(Wilson) Simpson is taken from the "Presbyterian" of 
1838 and was written by S. Studdiford. 

"She was a native of Bucks county, Penna., and died 
there in the 90th year of her age. She possessed such 
qualities of both the head and the heart, as rendered her 
a highly useful member of society. The constitution of 
both body and mind was vigorous and active, her mind 
well improved and stored with useful knowledge. It 
could with truth be said of her that she opened her 
mouth with wisdom and in her tongue was the law of 
kindness. She was congenial with both the young and 
old, and it was her pleasiu'e to contribute to the welfare 
and comfort of others. In youth she made a public pro- 
fession of religion. The Shorter Catechism was so fami- 
liar to her mind that she could repeat the whole of it 
without reference to the book. She was a great reader 
of good books and although she often said her mind was 
like a sieve her memory even in her latter years was 
considered unusually retentive of what she read. The 
biographies of Brainerd, Buchanan and Henry Martyn 
were great favorites with her. 

"Her husband when a child frequently saw David 
Brainerd and heard him preach at the forks of the Dela- 
ware near which his parents lived at a place called the 
Irish settlement (^). He distinctly remembered being 

(1) This settlement, at Bath, Northampton county, 
was sort of an overflow of the settlement at Neshamlny. 
Many members of the same families who located in 
Warwick and Warrington located there. 



32 THE WILSON FAMILY. 

taken to meeting by his mother and held up in her arms 
that he might see the preacher surrounded by his Indian 
audience, and used to mention as a circumstance that 
particularly impressed him, seeing the Indian women 
weeping around the man of God. 

"Mrs. Simpson had the opportunity of hearing several 
of the most eminent preachers of the Presbyterian church 
of that day and could describe the peculiar qualities 
that marked the preaching of some of them with great 
distinctness. Among those of whom she used to speak 
were the names of William Tennent, John Blair and her 
pastor, Mr, Beatty. Her numerous descendants can bear 
witness to her fidelity, and the interest she took in their 
welfare." 

William Simpson was a blacksmith and lived for a 
time in Buckingham, and also some years in lower Sole- 
bury. He is mentioned in the settlement of the 
estate of John Simpson, of lower Solebury, whose 
widow Robert Thompson married, and is supposed 
to have been his nephew and a son of William 
Simpson, Sr., of Buckingham. He lived for many years 
prior to his death on a farm near the "Eagle" in Upper 
Makefield. Both William Simpson, Sr., and William 
Simpson, Jr., were members of the Associated Company 
of Buckingham in 1775, under John Lacy as Captain 
and John Wilson, Lieutenant. William, Sr., was later a 
resident of Solebury and saw active service under Cap- 
tain Wall and his successor Captain Thomas of the Sole- 
bury Company. He died May 1, 1825. 

He and his wife are buried at Thompson Memorial 
Church in Solebury.

6, 1790, Thomas Gaine, as his name came subsequently 
to be spelled, although the earlier record including his 
marriage gives the name as Gaun. He was a weaver, 
hatter, and finally a merchant at "Log Town" as Penns 
Park was originally called, having purchased by deed 
dated November 20, 1784, fifty acres of land in the south- 
west corner of the Philadelphia and Wrightstown roads. 
His residence and shop, recently torn down, stood near 
the intersection of the two roads across the Wrightstown 
road from the present store. This tract of land was 
owned 1753-1754 by John Wilson, Sr., who also owned the 
tavern lot across the Philadelphia road 1754-1759. 

Thomas Gaine was a member of the Associated Com- 
pany of Wrightstown, which was affiliated with the 
Buckingham Company under Captain Lacey in 1775 (^). 
He later saw active service under Captain Henry 
Darrah (2). He died at "Log Town," January 12, 1820,

ed in orders by both Generals Worth and Scott in

THE THOMPSON FAMILY, 



THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

The only light that we can throw on the history of the 
first generation of the Thompson family in Pennsylva- 
nia is that of a family tradition, always rather vague 
as to chronology sometimes so vague and mysterious as 
to be almost worthless, to the honest historian. How- 
ever the writer of these lines has frequently encountered 
traditions almost as mythical as those of Aladdin's 
Lamp and Fortunatus' Purse, that held the fortunes of 
the universe, yet in every case a careful investigation of 
recorded facts, proved, or at least strongly corroborated, 
the essential points of the tradition, though the dates 
and localities were very erroneously stated in most cases. 

We are glad to say that in the case of the Thompson 
family, the tradition in reference to the arrival of the 
American progenitors in this province is so clearly stated 
and so fortified by known facts and records that there is 
no reason to question it. 

The family had its origin in the north of Ireland, that 
is, came to Pennsylvania from the northern provinces of 
Ireland, but was of pure Scotch origin, their immediate 
forbears having removed to Ireland to escape the civil 
and religious turmoils that harassed Scotland in the 
closing years of the Seventeenth Century. 

The Ulster Scots, or Scotch-Irish, as they are generally 
called, clannish by training in their native land, were 
true to this training in their exile in Ireland, and even on 
their removal to Pennsylvania. Therefore we find each 
consignment or shipload of these sturdy pioneers were 
more or less connected by ties of consanguinity, and in- 
sisted on settling in communities and in close association 
with each other. 

Thus we find those arriving after 1725, when the open 
tract along the Neshaminy, from the forks northward 
and westward, had been settled almost exclusively by 
Scotch-Irish families arriving just previous to that date, 



162 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

took up adjoining land and affiliated with their com- 
patriots. If the consignment was too large to be ac- 
commodated, they moved on into the wilderness to find 
sufficient open land to accommodate them, rather than 
settle among strangers to their faith and race. 

The tradition in the Thompson family is that one, 
Elizabeth McGraudy, having married in County Tyrone, 
Ireland, about the year 1719, one Thompson, whose given 
name the family tradition seems to have more lately 
decided to be Hugh, and about the year 1740," having 
been left a widow with four sons, the youngest a lad in 
his early teens, decided to emigrate to Penn's colony in 
America, accompanying relations and friends from the 
same locality The tradition states that when she was 
about to take ship, her aged father on his knees besought 
her to remain in Ireland, and on finding her obdurate, 
poured out an earnest prayer to God to preserve her and 
her family from the perils of the sea, and a life in the 
wilderness among wild beasts and without the ac- 
customed environment of a civilized life. 

We find that, between the years 1735 and 1742, the 
greater part of the land on the west branch of the 
Neshaminy in Warwick, Warrington and New Britain, 
was laid out to settlers who had recently arrived from 
the North of Ireland. At about the same time or a little 
later, small detached parties of Scotch-Irish made set- 
tlements in Newtown, Upper Makefleld, Northampton, 
Warminster and Southampton, mostly on the edges of 
the settlement about Neshaminy Church of Warwick, 
founded in 1727, with a slight overflowing into Wrights- 
town. 

With Elizabeth Thompson and her family, came her 
brother, Samuel McGraudy, and doubtless, other rela- 
tives of herself and her husband. Samuel JMcGraudy, in 
the year 1753, purchased a tract of 301 acres of land in 
Warwick township, adjoining the Samuel Fairies Mill 
tract, located by the Mearns and Ramsey families, with 
both of which the second generation of the Thompson 
family became allied by marriage. As this tract had 
been held solely by land speculators up to the time of 
McGraudy 's purchase, it is probable that it had been 
occupied for a number of years by some of the family, 
and it may have been the temporary home of Elizabeth 
Thompson, and her four sons, Hugh, Robert, William 
and John, all but the eldest of whom were millers, and, 
doubtless, learned their trade in some of the nearby

Nesharaiuy mills. Whether the other two or three 
Thompson Scotch Irish families, who settled in this lo- 
calit}^ at about the same date, were relations of the family 
of the Tyrone widow is not known, but the similarity of 
names of at least one of these families that settled near 
the Coimtj'^ line in Warrington, is significant. These are 
probably of the same line. Letters of administration 
were granted upon the estate of Robert Thompson of 
Wrightstown, October 3, 1745, to Thomas More, of 
Plumstead, and Hugh Thompson, of Wrightstown, their 
sureties being David Spear and Samuel McElhose, of 
Wrightstown. One item of the inventory in the estate 
of the deceased was, "Bond due from John Wilson 
£10 13 sh." The estate was small, less than £100, and 
the vocation of the decedent was given as laborer. He 
was possibly an uncle of the Thompson brothers with 
whom this narrative is concerned. 

Samuel McGraudy apparently went with Henry Jami- 
son (another pioneer settler on the Neshaminy in War- 
wick on a tract adjoining IMcGraudy's,) to Florida. His 
will dated at "Pensacola, Province of West Florida," 
January 31, 1765, was probated at Philadelphia, Febru- 
ary 4, 1766. It devised his estate to his wife Margaret, 
and sons, Robert, Gaun,(i) and John; giving £10 to 
"sister's daughter Elizabeth" without disclosing the 
name of either sister or niece. The son, Gaun, married a 
granddaughter of John Wilson, the founder of the 
Wilson family, with whom the Thompsons are allied, 
and an account of the family is given in the Wilson 
family. 

Elizabeth (McGraudy) Thompson, born in Ireland (or 
Scotland), September 20, 1695, {-) died in Bucks county, 
Pennsylvania, Scpteinber 2!). 1768. and is buried at Ne- 
shaminy Presbyterian Church of Warwick.

SECOND GENERATION. 

(2) HUGH THOMPSON, the eldest of the emigrant 
brothers, was born in Ireland in 1720. With Thomas 
More, of Plumstead, he was granted letters of adminis- 
tration in the estate of Robert Thompson, of Wrights- 
town, October 3, 1745, signing his name to the bond in 
a good round hand very similar to his later signatures, 
including that to his will. 

In the administrator's bond he is named as "Hugh 
Thompson, of Wrightstown, laborer," but he was for 
many years and up to the time of his death, a school- 
master. This vocation, being of a more or less itinerant 
nature, naturally led to frequent change of residence in 
his earlier days. He seems to have resided in the neigh- 
borhood of Solebury at the time of the marriage of his 
brother Robert to the widow Simpson in 1748, as Robert 
takes credit for cash paid to him in the settlement of the 
Simpson estate. He was a resident of Philadelphia at 
the time of the baptism of his two sons John and William 
1754-1757, at the 2d Presbyterian Church. 

A Hugh Thompson is enrolled as a member of Captain 
Thomas' Solebury Company of Militia in the Revolution 
(Penna. Archives, Fifth Series, Vol. 5, p. 445.) who was 
doubtless the schoolmaster. 

The tax list of Newtown 1779, the earliest list preserv- 
ed shows Hugh Thompson taxed for one cow. His name 
appears regularly in the tax lists of Newtown from that 
date until his death in 1797. By deed dated September 
31, 1788, he purchased a lot in Newtown on which he 
erected the house in which he died, at the corner of 
Court and Penn streets.

166 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

the north of Ireland. His place of residence from the 
time of the arrival of the family in Pennsylvania is un- 
knoM^n, but it was probably Wrightstown and Upper 
Makefield. Tradition in the Simpson family makes him 
a journeyman miller for John Simpson at what has been 
long known as Neeley's Mill on the Delaware at the 
mouth of Pidcock's Creek in the extreme lower point 
of Solebury township, Bucks comity. At the time of the 
death of the said John Simpson, about October 1, 1747. 
Six months later, on March 1, 1748, he married Hannah 
Delaplaine Simpson, the widow, and from that time 
seems to have had entire charge of the mill and planta- 
tion and the affairs and accounts of the Simpson estate. 

On March 31 1748 he made a public vendue in his own 
name of the live stock and other personal effects of the 
decedent, and among the purchasers were Hugh Thomp- 
son and Robert Thompson himself. No account was 
filed mitil December 14, 1757, when Robert Thompson 
petitioned the Orphans' Court to appoint men to inspect 
and settle his accounts of the estate of John Simpson 
Avhose widow and administratrix he had married. The 
report of the auditors was made at the next court and 
showed a balance in Thompson's hands as administrator 
of £605, 1 s. 11% d. Credit was taken for payment of 
debts and obligations to a long list of creditors and 
among them were Hugh Thompson and Thomas More. 
A charge of £20, 7s., 6d. is made for ''the children's 
schooling" and of £2 ''for finishing a barn." 

John Simpson and Hannah Delaplaine were married at 
Abington Friends Meeting in 1736 and soon after brought 
a certificate to Wrightstown Monthly Meeting and trans- 
ferred their membership to Buckingham Monthly Meet- 
ing in January 1743-4. 

How John Simpson acquired title to the land on which 
he built and operated the mill is not a matter of record 
in Bucks county. The tract comprised a trifle over 500 
acres and was originally surveyed to John Pidcock as 
shown by the early maps of the Manor of Highlands of 
which it formed a part. The Pidcocks probably trans- 
ferred such title as they had to John Simpson but neither 
seem to have taken out a patent. 

After the death of Simpson the quit rents were allow- 
ed to run into arrears, and on January 18, 1753, a patent 
was granted by the Proprietary Commissi(mers to Will- 
iam Coleman of Philadelphia, merchant, for the whole 



SECOND GENERATION. 167 

tract of 505 acres. The patent was however the culmi- 
nation of a contract between a syndicate of prominent 
business men who were interested in securing mining- 
privileges on the tract, copper ore having been mined 
thereon in a small way for a number of years. These 
men were Governor James Hamilton, Chief Justice Will- 
iam Allen, Lawrence Growden, Langhorne Biles, Joseph 
Turner and William Plumstead to whom William Cole- 
man transferred the title to the whole tract on June 19, 
1753, one day after the date of the patent, and they on the 
succeeding day June 20, transferred the same to Robert 
Thompson, reserving to their use, however, "full and free 
liberty, license and authority to dig, search and work 
for copper ore, lead ore, iron ore and all other ores and 
minerals in and through any part of said premises and 
said ores there from time to time and at all times here- 
after to be found and to have take carry away, and to 
convert to their own use and behoof (three full and clear 
fifth parts of all royal mines excepted and resers^ed to 
the proprietaries)" and "said grantors at all times to 
make reasonable satisfaction to the said Robert Thomp- 
son and his heirs for all damages which he or they shall 
suffer for by digging, searching for, getting, and carry- 
ing away such ore and working said mines, said dam- 
ages to be valued by two indifferent persons mutually 
chosen." 

Robert Thompson erected a house on this property in 
1757 which is still standing though now abandoned and 
rapidly falling into decay. On the front of this house 
is a date stone inscribed with his and his wife's initials 
and the date as follows : 

T. 

R. H. 

1757 

He continued in the ownership of the mill and planta- 
tion until his death and by his will devised it to his 
daughter Elizabeth and her husband, William Neely, and 
it remained in the family for three generations after 
them. The mill now in the tenure of Reuben High is 
still in operation but a new mill house was erected on 
the site of the old one. The title to all of the much 
divided tract has now passed out of the family. 

Thompson IMemorial Church, in the adjoining grave- 
yard of which rest the remains of many generations of 
the Thompson family, stands on the original tract a half

mile from the mill. However, Robert Thompson and his 
wife are both buried in the Presbyterian graveyard at 
Newtown, where tombstones with quite legible descrip- 
tions, record the dates of their respective deaths and 
their ages. 

Robert Thompson died November 8, 1804, at the age of 
eighty-two years and Hannah on June 16, 1803, at the 
age of eighty-nine years and three months. 

She was born in or near Germantown, Philadelphia, 
March 14, 1714, and was a daughter of James Delaplaine 
and his wife Hannah Cock, and a granddaughter of 
Nicholas Delaplaine, a native of France who came from 
Holland to the New Netherlands in the seventeenth cen- 
tury with his wife Susanna Cresson and her father Pierre 
Cresson, also a native of France. 

Robert Thompson was not enrolled as a member of the 
Associated Company of Solebury in 1775, nor in that of 
Upper Makefield in which however his son-in-law Will- 
nam Neely was enrolled. His age would preclude the 
necessity for voluntary enrollment but he probably took 
some part in the struggle for independence. His name 
appears later in the involuntary enrollment of Solebury 
militia in the third class. 

Issue of Robert and Hannah (Delaplaine) Thompson.

(4) WILLIAM THOMPSON, third of the emigrant 
brothers, was born in Ireland in ]724. As in the case of 
his brothers Hugh and Robert nothing is known of his 
residence in early manhood. He first appears on record 
March 28, 1758, when Edward Milnor conveys to Will- 
iam Thompson, of Northampton, cooper, (i) two acres of 
land in Wrightstown township along the Neshaminy 
creek, which was utilized in the erection of a mill dam, 
thereafter part of the mill site of Thompson's Mill on 
the opposite side of the creek in Northampton, at Chain 
Bridge. 

By deed dated August 11, 1758,(2) Robert Cummings 
conveys to William Thompson and John Thompson, mil- 
ler, of Northampton township, 14 acres, 69 perches of 

(1) Bucks County Deed Book 13, p. 399, 

(2) Ibid, p. 401. 



SECOND GENERATION. 169 

land in Northampton and by deed dated February 10, 
1759, (1) Joseph Sacket conveys to William Thompson, 
cooper, and John Thompson, miller, both of Northamp- 
ton township, 22 acres, 69 perches in Northampton. 
These three tracts comprise the mill site, upon which 
they erected a "water grist and com mill." 

William Thompson however, does not appear to have 
remained in Northampton many years after the erection 
of the mill. He purchased by deed dated May 1, 1759, 
of Evan Jones, 140 acres in Wrightstown extending up 
to the ''Town Square" at Penns Park, on which he maj'' 
have resided for a few years, but soon removed to Lower 
Dublin township, Philadelphia county, where he appears 
to have owned and operated a mill for several years. 
William Thompson of Lower Dublin township, miller, 
and Elizabeth, his wife, by deed dated February 1, 
1764, (2) conveyed to John Thompson, of Northampton, 
miller, the above named three tracts with mill and other 
improvements thereon. However he returned to Bucks 
county, purchasing by deed dated September 13, 1765, {^) 
the mill at Bridgetown in Middletown township, and re- 
moved thereto. His next purchase was 195 acres of 
land in Wrightstown of the heirs and executors of Isaac 
Chapman, deceased, by deeds dated December 30, 
1771, (*) and on the same date he executed a deed to 
William Chapman, granting him the 'privilege of over- 
flowing and laying under water" parts of the said 195 
acres in the construction of a mill dam.* This tract ex- 
tends from Penns Park along the east side of the Phila- 
delphia road to the Neshaminy at Thompson's Mill. 

He continued to reside in Wrightstown from the date 
of this deed until 1777 but M^hether on the Chapman or 
Penns Park farm we are unable to determine. By deed 
dated May 3, 1777, {^) he purchased of the heirs and ex-

*Tlie Chapman mill tract lay next to this tract down 
the Neshaminy, but the Mill being located near the lower 
line of the Chapman tract it seems strange that it was 
necessary to bacK water over the Thompson tract. This 
part of the Thompson tract is now owned by William 
Davis. Part of this tract lying within the "Town Square" 
had been purchased by Isaac Chapman of John Wil- 
son. (?)

170 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

ecutors of Samuel Fairies the mill on the Neshaminy in 
Warwick lately known as Ross' Mill with 75 acres of 
land and removed thereto. Up to this time notwith- 
standing his wanderings he retained the title to the 
Bridgetown Mill, eonvejnng it to Joseph Jenks May 17, 
1777,(1) while a resident in Warwick. He retained occu- 
pation of the Warwick Mill until 1780, operating there a 
grist mill, oil mill and tannery. In the latter year he 
returned to Wrightstown and in 1781 the property is 
taxed in the name of Hugh Ramsey, his son-in-law, to 
whom a conveyance thereof is made by William Thomp- 
son, of Wrightstown, "Miller" and Elizabeth his wife, 
April 4, 1782.(2) 

This time he remained in Wrightstown until 1783. On 
June 23, of that year he conveyed the 195 acres bought 
of Isaac Chapman's estate to his brother John, (3) and 
removed to New London township, Chester county. By 
deeds dated November 20, 1784, he and his wife Eliza- 
beth, resident in New London, conveyed to William Rob- 
inson 56 acres 136 perches, to Thomas Gaine 50 acres 28 
perches, and to Samuel Kirk, 73 acres, 157 perches, re- 
spectively, parts of the Penns Park, property purchased 
of Evan Jones in 1759. While still a resident of New 
London, Chester county, he purchased at sheriff's sale, 
September 13, 1787, 85 acres in Northampton sold as the 
property of Robert VanHorn, and with his wife Eliza- 
beth conveyed it to Gilliam Cornell two weeks later. 

William Thompson was named as one of the three 
trustees to whom the site of the Presbyterian church and 
graveyard at Newtown was conveyed in 1769. 

As in the case of his elder brothers there is no proof 
of his active service in the field during the Revolution- 
ary War. He, with John Johnson and Simon Sacket, 
was one of the committee from Wrightstown appointed 
by the Committee of Safety to receive the arms of non- 
associators.(*) The names Hugh, Robert, John and 
William Thompson were common to other families in 
Bucks county at the time of the Revolution and it is next 
to impossible to distinguish between them, where resi- 
dence is not given. 

William Thompson died August 16, 1815, in East Not- 
tingham township. Chester county, Pcnna., at the ripe

old age of ninety-one years. He married in 1759 or 1760, 
Elizabeth Huston, daughter of Hugh Huston, another 
Scotch Irishman of Warwick township by his wife 
Jane Ramsey, who accompanied her first husband, Rob- 
ert Mearns and her brother William Ramsey, from the 
North of Ireland prior to 1730. 

Robert Mearns and his brother-in-law William Ramsey 
purchased 638 acres of land in Warwick township, 
Mearns paying one-third of the purchase money and 
Ramsey two-thirds thereof. On the eastern end of the 
tract was erected Mearns' Mill which with a portion of 
the land is still owned and occupied by a member of the 
family, Robert Mearns died in March 1730 and his 
widow about one year later married Hugh Huston. The 
land was not divided until 1745 when on petition of 
Hugh Mearns and William Ramsey to the Orphans 
Court, 212 3-4 acres were laid off to the Mearns heirs and 
the balance to William Ramsey, their petition reciting 
the facts in relation to the pur chase and subsequent 
marriage of the widow Mearns to Hugh Huston. It was 
on a portion of this tract that the Fairies Mill, later 
owned by William Thompson and his son-in-law Hugh 
Ramsey was located. 

Jane (Ramsey) Mearns-Huston died September 12, 
1781 at the age of eighty-two years having survived her 
second husband many years. He was a member of the 
Associated Company of Warwick, August 21, 1775, after 
which we have no record of him. He is probably buried 
beside his wife in Neshaminy graveyard but no tomb- 
stone marks his resting place. Hugh and Jane (Ram- 
sey) Huston had besides Elizabeth and Mary Thompson, 
the wives respectively of William and John Thompson, 
a son Thomas Huston, who was captain of a Bucks 
county company during the Revolution and rendered 
loyal service. He was the father of Hon Charles Huston, 
a justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

(5) JOHN THOMPSON, the youngest of the four 
emigrant brothers, was born November 18, 1726. As 
cited in the sketch of his elder brother William, he joined 
William in the purchase of the mill site at Chain Bridge 
in Northampton township in 1758 and 1759 and pur- 
chased the interest of his brother therein by deed of 
February 1, 1764. He was a miller by vocation and 
probably learned that trade at the Mearns Mill on the 
Neshaminy creek in Warwick township near the North- 
ampton line only a few miles distant from what became 
his own mill site. He was a successful business man and 
became a large land holder. His first purchase after the 
completion of the mill was on approximately the date of 
his marriage March 20, 1762, (i) when Robert Cummings 
and Ann his wife conveyed to him a "Messuage, 
plantation" and 79 acres and 148 perches of land adjoin- 
ing the mill property, part of the same tract from which 
the mill site was cut off. On April 25, 1765,(2) Cum- 
mings conveyed to him another "tenement and planta- 
tion" with 109 acres, another part of the same tract, 
making the homestead and mill tract a total of about 228 
acres. 

It was upon the first of these tracts that the old gam- 
brel roofed house stands that was the home of the 
Thompsons for several generations. Tradition relates, 
however that it was not the original house on the prop- 
erty but was built by John Thompson soon after his 
purchase of the tract. There are legends of its having 
been beseiged by Indians but these legends probably had 
their origin the raids made upon it by the Tories dur- 
ing the Revolution when the Doan outlaws ransacked 
the house in search of money collected by John Thomp- 
son for the use of the government and the army. They 
found very little money however as the bulk of it was 
concealed in a cushion on which Mrs. Thompson sat in 
one of the chairs in the living room ; she refused to leave 
her chair on the ground of bodily infirmities thus saving

her husband from the loss of considerable cash.(i) The 
house was located on a hill which rises from the valley 
of the Neshaminy a short distance from the mill. It was 
set back a little from the old King's HighAvay which 
crossed the Neshaminy at the mill first by a ford and, 
soon after the erection of the mill by a wooden bridge, 
which was later replaced by a Chain Bridge which gave 
its name to the mill and locality. 

John Thompson was an active patriot during the Revo- 
lution. He enrolled himself as a member of the North- 
ampton Company of Associators(2) and w^as commis- 
sioned ensign thereof August 19, 1775. 

He was commissioned Sheriff of Bucks county, March 
22, 1777(3) and served until October 17, 1779, being the 
first Sheriff of Bucks county commissioned under the 
constitution of 1776. He was appointed wagon master 
January 9, 1778 ; sub-agent for purchasing flour for the 
French fleet, on July 13, 1779 ; and Collector of Excise on 
October 20, 1783. It is probable that to his position as 
a commissioned officer as well as the fact that he had 
funds in his hands collected for the use of that gov- 
ernment that he owed the visit of the "Tory Doans," as 
their animosity was generally directed against tax col- 
lectors. 

See Penna. Archives, Second Series, Volume III, pp.

In 1773 John Thompson purchased a farm of 176 acres, 
130 perches on Newtown creek in Newtown township, of 
John Davis. (^) In 1778 he purchased 38 acres in War- 
wick near Bridge Valley of Elijah Anderson. (S) In 1783 
his brother "William conveyed to him the 195 acres in 
AVrightstown,(^) bought of the Isaac Chapman estate. 

(1) Some details of this raid are related by Charles 
Thompson, a great grandson of this John Thompson, 
who states that it occurred when his grandfather, Hugh, 
was eighteen years old, which would place it in the year 
1782. As related to Charles by his grandfather, there 
was considerable money in the house, including the pro- 
ceeds of a load of flour taken to Trenton, and the team 
driver, farmer and miller, the name of whom Charles 
does not recollect were at the house effecting a settle- 
ment. Hugh and the other sons were also present and 
although driven from the lower part of the house defend- 
ed the stairway so valiantly that the outlaws did not 
reach the upper floor but decamped with very little 
plunder.

In 1789 he bought at Sheriff's sale 29 acres, 108 perches

Lefferts three tracts in Newtown aggregating 130 
acres, (2) and in 1797 of Dr. Samuel Dungan 193 acres, 
109 perches in Northampton, (^) making an aggregate of 
945 acres of which he died seized. 

John Thompson married February 17, 1762 Mary Hus- 
ton, twin sister of Elizabeth the wife of his brother Will- 
iam, and daughter of Hugh and Jane (Ramsey) Huston. 
She was born October 6, 1738, and died August 11, 1803. 
John Thompson died July 18, 1799. Both are buried 
in the Presbyterian graveyard at Newtown. 

The will of John Thompson probated September 24, 
1799, is registered at Doylestown in Will Book 6, page 
211, and is as follows : 

I, John Thompson, of the Township of Northampton,

THIRD GENERATION. 

(6) CAPTAIN JOHN THOMPSON, son of Hugh and 
Sarah, born August 17, 1754, was baptised at Second 
Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia, December 15, 1754. 

(1) This lot on the Philadelphia Road was the 29 
acres, 108 perches directly across the Philadelphia Road 
from the late Albert Thompson farm lately belonging to 
Henry W. Pearson to whom it was conveyed by Abraham 
Thompson in 1851. The heirs of Hugh Thompson con- 
veyed to Abraham Nov. 17, 1847. 



THIRD GENERATION. 177 

He appears to have resided in or near Newtown until 
1803. By deed dated November 22, 1803, recorded at 
Doylestown in Deed Book 33, page 337, as "John Thomp- 
son, only son and devisee named in the will of Hugh 
Thompson, late of Newtown, Schoolmaster," he conveys 
to Aaron Phillips the house and lot in Newtown, at the 
corner of Court and Penn streets, devised to him by his 
father. Part of the consideration was a bond of $1000.00 
given by Aaron Phillips, the interest whereof was to be 
paid to Sarah Thompson, widow of said Hugh, during her 
life, and the princiual at her death to the said John 
Thompson. He is joined in this deed by wife Mary 
Thompson. The subsequent conveyance of this house 
down to 1808, show that Sarah Thompson was living 
therein. It finally came into the ownership of William 
Kroesen, who had married Sarah Johnson, a daughter of 
Elizabeth (Thompson) Johnson, sister to John as shown 
later in the narrative. 

John Thompson was commissioned. May 6, 1777, Cap- 
tain of the First Company, Fifth Battalion, Bucks County 
Militia, Colonel, Joseph Mcllvain. On July 31, 1777, he 
was stationed at Bristol, Pennsylvania, with 47 men and, 
four other companies, under command of Colonel Hugh 
Tomb.(i) 

On the records of Newtown Presbyterian Church, ap- 
pears a record of the marriage of John Thompson to 
Catharine Arkley on May 4, 1778, but if this was Cap- 
tain Thompson, he must have married a second time. 
The same records show the Baptism of the children of 
"Captain John and Mary Thompson" as given below. 
We have no record of him after 1803.

Newtown until 1811, (i) when he removed to the eastern 
shore of Maryland, near Newark, Delaware, and later 
to New Castle county, Delaware, where he died. He 
marrried, second, October 26, 1786, Jemima Davis, daugh-

eight children, the eldest of whom Sarah was born May 
21, 1787. Among the other children were James Neely

(8) ELIZABETH THOMPSON, daughter of Hugh 
and Sarah, was born about 1760. She married January 
25, 1781 Abraham Johnson, (2) son of John Johnson who 
died at Newtown in March 1799, leaving a will by which 
he bequeathed to his son Abraham, five pounds and a 
legacy of fifteen pounds to Abraham's children, Mary, 
John, Hugh and Robert, the interest to be paid to their 
father during his life. Abraham Johnson was commis- 
sioned December 6, 1776, Ensign (s) of Captain Henry 
Vanhorn's Company; Thomas Huston, brother of the 
wives of John and William Thompson, being Lieutenant. 
On May 6 1777 he was commissioned Second Lieu-

tween them though the Simpsons were members af the 
Society of Friends and she was reared as a Presbyterian. 

She was married June 24, 1766 at the Dutch Reformed 
Church, Churchville, to William Neely. He was born 
in Ireland August 31, 1742, and came to Pennsylvania

married Charles Stewart of Upper Makefield in which 
township he was reared. He learned the milling business 
with Robert Thompson prior to his marriage with the 
latter 's daughter and upon his wife's inheriting the mill, 
he continued to operate it until his death, and it came 
to be known as Neely's Mill. 

William Neely was one of the leading organizers of 
the Presbyterian congregation of Solebury out of the 
Newtown congregation in 1810, and was made treasurer 
of the fund raised for erection of the church, and as a 
delegate of the associated subscribers he applied to the 
Philadelphia Presbytery on October 12, 1810, for it to 
be taken under the care of the Presbytery as an inde- 
pendent church. The church was later known as the 
Thompson Memorial Church, its main supporters be- 
ing the Thompson family. 

"William Neely enrolled himself as a member of the 
Associated Company of Upper Makefield August 19, 
1775,(1) and on May 6, 1777 he was commissioned Cap- 
tain of the Fourth Company First Battalion of the 
Bucks County Militia under Col. Hugh Tomb. (2) His 
company was at Billingsport August 26 1777 under Major 
John Folwell but was in command of Lieutenant John 
Keith. On the organization of the Flying Camp in 1776 
William Neely was commissioned Captain of one of the 
companies in that organization (^) and participated with 
it in the Campaign of Long Island. 

William Neely died July 10, 1818, and his wife Eliza- 
beth died February 13, 1834. Both are buried in the 
Solebury Presbyterian churchyard.

was probably a nephew or other near relative of Jean 
Ramsey the mother of Elizabeth (Huston) Thompson. 
On his marriage to Jane Thompson he took charge of the 
Fairies Mill and in 1782 purchased it of his father-in-law, 
William Thompson, and conducted it until 1790 when he 
sold it and removed to East Nottingham township, 
Chester county, Pennsylvania, where he purchased a 
large tract of land. In 179-4 he erected a hotel and store 
in East Nottingham which he conducted until his death 
which occurred March 25, 1825. He was a man of quiet 
undemonstrative disposition, but a successful business 
man and held in high esteem by his neighbors. He is 
said to have been the last man in his section to wear 
knee breeches. Another eccentricity related of his old 
age was the habit, when sitting in thoughtful and 
reminiscent mood, to pull one long hair at a time from 
his head with the result that he became quite bald. 

Jane Ramsey continued to keep the tavern for some 
years after the death of her husband and was considered 
a clever and shrewd business woman. She inherited un- 
der her father's will one-half of the plantation in New 
London township, the other one-half interest being de- 
vised to her sister Mary Scott. Mrs. Ramsey died May 
12, 1836.

executrix with her cousin. Dr. William Thompson, and 
devised to her the residue of his real and personal estate 
including the mill on the Octorara Creek. On February 
9, 1815, she married Jonathan Kirk of an old Irish Quaker 
family who had come from Lurgan, Ireland about 1684, 
and settled in New Castle county. He was a son of 



184 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

Elisha and Mary (Allen) Kirk, the Aliens being another 
of the Irish Quaker families of Nottingham and New 
Castle. 

The marriage was evidently distasteful to her father, 
as on May 31, 1815, he added a codicil to his will cutting 
her out altogether as a legatee and executrix. The fact 
is referred to by Dr. William Thompson in a letter to his 
brother Hugh, of Wrightstown, under date of September 
19, 1815, in which he further states that "that the young 
son-in-law, Betty's husband, has instituted suit in law 
against the codicil." This codicil which named his son 
John, executor was set aside by a jury November 17, 
1817. 

Elizabeth died December 11, 1821, (i) and Jonathan 
married second Hannah Thomas. He died in Michigan 
in the autumn of 1829.

Addis to Yardley in 1808. All these conversances recite

Kroesen having purchased but the half. William Kroe- 
sen having sold off three lots in the rear fronting on

James Jefferson Fulton was born on his father's farm, 
on the Big Elk in New Castle county, February 18, 1801. 
He received a common school education at local subscrip- 
tion schools and learned the trade of a paper maker. In 
partnership with his brother. Miller Fulton, he operated 
a paper mill and fulling mill on the Big Elk, 1823-1827, 
when the partnership was dissolved, James J. continuing 
to operate the mill until 1831. In that year he removed 
to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where he engaged in the 
manufacture of wall paper with the old style hand 
presses, in connection with Samuel Bustil, he and his 
wife being admitted as members of the Presbyterian 
Church at Lancaster September 30, 1831. His manu- 
facturing plant was located in an old frame building on 
Duke street where the court house now stands. He saw 
the first locomotive at Lancaster station in 1835. 

In 1832, he removed to and took charge of Eshelman's 
Mill on the west branch of the Octarora creek in Bart 
township, Lancaster county. In the spring of 1835 he 
removed to a mill in West Nottingham township, Chester 
county, where he continued to reside until his death on

(49) JOHN JOHNSTON THOMPSON, M. D., son of 
John S. and Anne (Gillespie) Thompson, was born in 
Woodstock, Shenandoah county, Virginia, October 22, 
1808. He studied medicine and was located for a time 
at Luray, Page county, Virginia, later locating at Point 
Pleasant, Mason county, West Virginia, and finally in 
Putnam county, West Virginia, near the town of Ray- 
mond, where he died May 16, 1881. 

He was a man much admired and sought after for his 
sterling worth and usefulness. He was a close student 
and became eminent in his profession. Dr. Thompson 
was elected to the Legislature of Virginia in 1859 and 
served in the memorable session of 1860-1 when the 
state seceded from the Union, which secession he bitterly 
and persistently opposed. A marked trait of his char- 
acter was his impatience of sham, insincerity and hypoc- 
risy in professional, business, social, or public life. Quite 
a glowing tribute was paid to his memory by the local 
papers at the time of his death. 

Dr. Thompson married May 8, 1832, Anne Arthur,

Road, between Wrightstown and the Anchor Hotel, ex- 
tending southwesterly along the road to Penn's Park, 
and northwesterly to the Second Street turnpike near the 
trolley crossing. One half of the farm next to the Dur- 
ham Road was the homestead of Joseph Johnson and was 
devised to Charles and Anna by his will in 1827 being al- 
ready their home. The other half was purchased by 
Charles Thompson in 1840. After the death of Charles 
Thompson this property was sold to Edward W. Sackett. 

Charles Thompson was for a number of years a Justice 
of the Peace and made an enviable record as a judicious 
peace officer. Although he made an earnest effort to see 
justice done between litigants he made it a point to keep 
all petty cases out of court and adjust all differences in a 
just and honorable manner. He was looked upon as a 
man of more than ordinary intelligence and judgment 
and was much respected in the neighborhood in which he 
resided. He also followed surveying and conveyancing, 
and there are very few legal documents covering the per-

iod of his activities in that neighborhood that were not

farmer in the neighborhood who kept a herd of hornless 
cattle, believing that horned cattle were too cruel to 
each other. This was many years before the custom of 
dehorning cattle came into vogue.

(91) HUSTON THOMPSON, M. D., eldest son of 
Thomas Mifflin and Elizabeth (Wilson) Thompson, born 
on the maternal homestead in Buckingham township, 
Bucks county, Pennsylvania, March 7, 1801, studied medi- 
cine and practiced his profession at Dolington, Bucks 
county, until his death on February 8, 1844. He had the 
reputation of a successful and skilled i)hysician. He was 
never married. In the great freshet of 1842, when 
many of the bridges across the Delaware river, including 
the one at Washington's Crossing, (Taylorsville) were 
washed away. Dr. Huston Thompson was among the 
many congregated on the river banks at Taylorsville 
watching the extraordinary flood. Shortly before the 
bridge gave away to the force of the flood, it was re- 
marked that the painting executed by Edward Hicks 
representing Washington crossing the Delaware was still 
on the bridge where it had hung for many years. Dr. 
Thompson, on learning the fact, rushed out on the quiv- 
ering bridge and rescued the painting, regaining the 
abutment just as the bridge went down. This crude but 
interesting historical relic is now among the exhibits 
of the Bucks County Historical Society at Doylestown. 

(92) SIMPSON THOMPSON, second son of Thomas 
Mifflin and Elizabeth (Wilson) Thompson, born on the old

farm in Buckingham township, Bucks county, Pennsylva-

Simpson, daughter of James and Mary (Torbert) Simp- 
son, of Upper Makefield, born June 20, 1806. 

He engaged in farming for a few years near the Ne- 
shaminy in his native county and then went to Balti- 
more, Maryland, where he engaged in the mercantile 
business. His wife died June 24, 1844, during his resi- 
dence in Baltimore. 

In 1848 Mr. Thompson engaged in the plumbing busi- 
ness in Philadelphia in connection with his cousin Hugh 
Thompson and subsequently engaged in business in ^J- 
bany. New York. In May 1852, Simpson Thompson sailed 
for California, whither his younger brother, Neely, a 
"forty-niner" had preceded him. On his arrival he 
settled on Soscol Ranch, located by his brother, and for 
six weeks lived under an immense ash tree, still standing 
in 1911 near the present buildings, cooking his own meals 
and doing his own washing. He converted the Soscol 
ranch into a fruit farm and in after years the Thompson 
orchards had a state-Avide reputation. Simpson Thomp- 
son continued to reside on this ranch until his death on 
Christmas day 1888 at the ripe old age of eighty-five 
years. He was universally respected by all who knew 
him as a man of sterling worth.

(97) WILLIAM NEELY THOMPSON, youngest son 
of Thomas IMifflin and Elizabeth (Wilson) Thompson, 
born in Buckingham township, Bucks county, Pennsylva- 
nia, October 4, 1819, died in the city of Mexico, October 
14, 1897. He went to California in 1849 with the hun- 
dreds of other gold seekers known to this day as "the 
forty-niners." After a season of prospecting for gold 
with indifferent success he secured the grant to the 
famous Soscol ranch, and on the arrival of his brother 
Simpson, they made a number of improvements and ope- 
rated it together for a number of years. 

Eventually, however, the wanderlust of the miner got 
the upper hand and a slight difference arising between 
the brothers, he sold his share in the ranch and engaged 
in the lumber business, in the meantime dabbling in min- 
ing interests. He acquired quite a fortune which he lost, 
however, by endorsing for a friend, from whom he later 
acquired a mortgage on a large ranch in Chili, said to 
cover an area equal to that of Bucks county. He held 
his claim to this ranch until his death. 

His next business venture was quicksilver mining in 
Southern California and gold mining in Mexico. About 
1858 he acquired title to the New Idria Quick Silver Mines 
in Monterey county, California and operated them for 
many years. He was forced to defend his title to these 
mines for years through State and Supreme Courts and 
the United States Land Office and even in the United 
States Congress, against an infamous scoundrel named

FOURTH GENERATION. 217 

William MeGarrahan, who succeeded in corrupting 
many county clerks, surveyor generals, judges and 
members of both houses of Congress. William Neely 
Thompson finally winning out, published in 1875, a book 
known as the "MeGarrahan Claim," in which he shows 
how many men standing high in public life were cor- 
rupted by IMcGarrahan. A copy of this book is in the 
library of the Bucks County Historical Society. He 
eventually sold the mine, considering it worked out, al- 
though it is still producing $10,000 per month in divi- 
dends, and went to IMexico where he became proprietor 
of the famous El Oro mines over which he also had some 
trouble, and he died in Mexico fighting for his rights. 

In 1873, Neely Thompson learned that the Solebury 
Presbj^terian Church, where his ancestors had worshipped 
and were buried, was about to be abandoned for want of 
financial and numerical support. He at once came to 
the rescue and after joining with his relatives and others 
in a revival of interest in the old church which added 
fifty new members, he rebuilt the church structure, and 
purchased a tract of land which he added to the cem- 
etery and donated to the church. He also agreed to pay 
an annual amount equal to that raised by the parishion- 
ers for the support of a good live pastor. It was through 
this revival and rebuilding that the church came to be 
known as the Thompson Memorial Church. 

William Neely Thompson married in 1854 Mary

becca Freeman, of California. She was born May 20,

in Pennsylvania Hall when it was burned by the pro- 
slavery mob in 1828 and his house was a depot on the

their way to freedom. He died at Beaufort, South Caro- 
lina, where his son James G. Thompson had established a

and the rugged honesty of the old fashioned sort, he did 
his duty as he saw it, fearlessly." He was a consistent

first located at Flint Hill, Virginia, removing from there 
to Madison county, Virginia, where he subsequently en- 
gaged in farming at Poca Bottom until the breaking out 
of the Civil War. Though opposed to secession, it hav- 
ing been accomplished in his native state, he entered the 
Confederate army as captain of a company of riflemen 
and took part in the fighting in the Kanawha Valley. 
In 1862, he was promoted to the rank of Colonel and in 
1863, was so seriously wounded in a battle near White 
Sulphur Springs that he retired from active service in 
January 1864. 

He was afterward assigned to the medical department 
with the rank of Colonel, on the staff of General Breck- 
euridge, a position in which he rendered a mixed service 
of medical and military character with Breckenridge in 
the Kanawha Valley during 1864, and when the General 
was called to another department Colonel Barbee was 
left there, a commanding and chief medical officer. He

vi^hich he was a candidate for Congress on the Re- 
publican ticket, making a creditable run, it being gene- 
rally conceded that he was elected though his opponent 
was seated. In 1881 in connection with Hon. J. J. 
Woods, then Speaker of the House of Delegates of West 
Virginia, he was instrumental in the passage of the law 
regulating the practice of medicine and surgery in the 
state. He was a member of the West Virginia State 
Medical Association as well as the Ohio Valley and Mason 
County Medical Societies ; was a member of the State 
Board of Health from its organization until his death ;

city. Having chosen the profession of journalism, he 
learned early in life the mechanical part of the profes- 
sion in his father's printing office. He also gained a 
knowledge of the intellectual department of newspaper 
publishing before leaving home. Li 1859, at the age of 
twenty-four, he was engaged by Alexander Cummings, 
then of Philadelphia, to form part of the staff of the 
"New York World," which he was launching in New York 



FIFTH GENERATION. 279 

City a first class morning journal to be sold for one cent. 
James Thompson was placed in charge of the proof room, 
acting as censor of both reading matter and advertise- 
ments, excluding all reprehensible matter from the 
columns as it was to be a clean paper, fit to be read aloud 
in any Christian family. This position he held until 
Fort Sumter was fired upon, April 12, 1861. 

The news of the surrender of Fort Sumter reached New 
York on April 14. Mr. Thompson decided at once to 
go to Washington "on his own hook" as he expressed it 
in his diary. Receiving in the World office the call of 
President Lincoln for 75,000 volunteers, he took it to the 
editorial room and read it aloud, immediately deciding to 
enlist. On April 18, he left for Washington, and his 
diary gives a graphic account of the trip, and the condi- 
tion of affairs on the way as well as on his arrival in 
Washington on April 20. On the 22nd he went with a 
detachment of soldiers to Baltimore as correspondent of 
the World and describes in the pages of that paper the 
disturbance and excitement in that city. He returned to 
Washington on the 25th and decided to enlist in the 71st 
New York Regiment on its arrival, but in the mean time 
enlisted in Cassius M. Clay's Battalion and was mustered 
in April 26, 1861. On May 4, he enlisted in Company A, 
71st New York Regiment, for three months and after 
serving on board vessels patrolling the Potomac went 
with the 71st and Ellsworth's Zouaves to Alexandria, May 
25, the day Captain Ellsworth was killed while pulling 
down the Confederate flag. The 71st Regiment did ex- 
cellent service in the battle of Bull Rmi, in Burnside's 
Brigade, Hunter's Division, and suffered heavy losses. 

His term of enlistment having expired July 20, he was 
mustered out July 28, with the regiment and returned to 
Philadelphia AugvTst 1, 1861. He almost immediately de- 
veloped a bad case of typhoid fever which kept him home 
until January 1862, when he returned to the World Office. 
In a short time he discovered that his eyesight was so af- 
fected as to make it impossible for him to do newspaper 
work, and he suffered several months of enforced idle- 
ness. In July 1862 he was appointed an agent of the 
Treasury Department at Port Royal, South Carolina 
where in addition to his official duties he edited an army 
newspaper called the "Free South." In November 1864, 
the United States troops were withdrawn from Port 
Royal and Beaufort. Mr. Thompson raised a company 
of cavalry from among the civilian employes of the Gov- 



280 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

ernment and was appointed its Captain by IMajor General 
Rufus Saxton, then Military Governor of South Carolina 
and Georgia. The company was mustered into service 
November 18, 1864, and was constantly on duty imtil the 
arrival of General 0. 0. Howard's Division of Sherman's 
Army in January 1865. They had furnished their own 
horses and served without pay but had done loyal ser- 
vice in preventing Confederate occiipation of the island. 

Mr. Thompson took an active part in the reconstruc- 
tion of South Carolina as a state, being a member of the 
first Constitutional Convention in the winter of 1865, 
being the only Northerner and ex-Union soldier in the 
body. He was elected to the Legislature from the Beau- 
fort District December 1865, but did not qualify as he felt 
sure that Congress would not ratify the Columbia Consti- 
tution. 

In 1868, he established the "Beaufort Republican," and 
afterwards the "Port Royal Commercial," both of which 
became prominent factors in the politics of the state in 
the reconstruction period. 

In 1870, Mr. Thompson was appointed Commissioner of 
the United States Courts in South Carolina, a position he 
held for ten years to the satisfaction of the United States 
Judges. He was admitted to the bar as an Attorney in 
the United States Courts, and had many vital questions 
to handle. During the exciting political campaign of 
1870, 1872, 1874 and 1876, he was editor of the "Union 
Herald," the only Republican newspaper published south 
of the Potomac. 

In 1878, he left South Carolina and for two years was 
an agent in the Quartermaster's Department in Kansas 
and Colorado. In 1880 he went to Washington, D. C, as 
editor of the "National Republican" but soon left it and 
became editor of "The Capitol." He subsequently served 
as an official of the Post Office Department, but never 
lost his love for newspaper work, and was a constant 
correspondent of the leading New York and Washington 
journals. 

He was a delegate to the Republican National Conven- 
tions of 1860, 1864, 1868, and 1876, and was an im- 
portant factor of the Convention of 1884, though not a 
delegate. He died in Washington, D. C, August 6, 1901. 
His remains were cremated and the ashes interred in the 
Thompson Memorial Church in Solebury, Bucks county, 
Pennsylvania. 

He married October 15, 1863, Elizabeth II, Wattson,

(371) MAJOR LEWIS TAPPAN THOMPSON, son of 
Lewis and Rosanna (Gordon) Thompson, born in Phila- 
delphia July 25, 1838. He was educated for a business 
career, and at the outbreak of the Civil War was cashier 
and bookkeeper for P. Waples and Company, of Phila- 
delphia. On May 4, 1861, he set out for Washington, 
where he enlisted with his brother James G. in Com- 
pany A, 71st Regiment New York Volunteers. On ac- 
count of his delicate health, he was one of those selected 
from the regiment to remain in Washington to guard the 
Navy Yard, but he protested so strongly that he was al- 
lowed to go to the front with the regiment, with which 
he served until it was mustered out. He was then ap- 
pointed aide on the staff of General John C. Fremont, 
with rank of Lieutenant, and went on duty in Missouri. 
When Fremont was deprived of his command, Lieutenant 
Thompson joined General Lane's command as a volun- 
teer and served for a time as Adjutant General of Lane 's 
Brigade. He was subsequently appointed Captain of a 
Company in the Third Kansas Cavalry, and passed 
through the hard service of border warfare in the winter 
of 1861-2. For signal bravery and generalship on an 
expedition into Missouri for forage, he was recommended 
by General Lane to the War Department for promotion, 
and received the appointment of Lieutenant in the Second 
United States Cavalry and was assigned to duty on the 
staff of General Blunt as dispersing and mustering officer. 
He participated in the campaign leading up to and in- 
cluding the battle of Pea Ridge. 

In May 1862, he was ordered to join Company C of the 
Second United States Cavalry on the Potomac, and from 
that date to the surrender at Appotamox, participated

with the Army of the Potomac in the main events of the 
war, many times receiving honorable mention for dis- 
tinguished services and bravery in action, by his com- 
manding officers, and was brevetted Captain for his dis- 
tinguisHed services at Middleboro. He was captured 
July 2, 1862, at the battle of Gettysburg, while serving 
as Inspector General of General Merrit's Brigade, by a 
detachment of Confederate Troops in United States uni- 
form, which they had stolen at the sacking of Carlisle. 
He was carried to the notorious Libby Prison, from which 
he was transferred to Macon, Georgia, in June 1864, and 
in July to Charlestown, South Carolina, where he re- 
mained until a special parole was arranged for him by his 
brother-in-law, General Rufus Saxton, when he was 
granted three months leave of absence. After this he 
went on duty as recruiting and mustering officer in Phil- 
adelphia, where he served until the close of the war. 

On September 5, 1865, he was brevetted Major for dis- 
tinguished services during the war. At the close of the 
war, he was appointed Indian Agent in Colorado in which 
position, and as military aide to Governor Cummings, he 
served for one year. For nine years from 1867 to 1876, 
he was on frontier duty with his regiment, suppressing 
Indian disturbances and guarding work on the Pacific 
Railways which were then building, participating in many 
bloody encounters with the savages and having a number 
of hair breadth escapes from death at their hands. 

In the fall of 1875, Major Thompson was granted six 
months leave of absence, having long suffered from the 
effects of his prison experience, and spent the time with 
his brother, James, at Columbia, South Carolina, but he 
rejoined his Company at Fort Ellis, Montana, in 1876, in 
time to take part in the great campaign against the Sioux, 
and narrowly escaped the fate of General Custer and 
his command, when they were surrounded and massacred 
by Sitting Bull and his band. Major Thompson's letter 
to his brother James, predicted the disaster several weeks 
before it happened, by reason of Custer having ignored 
the advice of tried veterans who had scouted over the 
same ground for six years, and rushed rashly to his doom. 
Major Thompson's squadron was with General Gibbon's 
command which followed Custer, who by his impetuous 
advance struck the Sioux without waiting for Gibbons, 
who reached the scene after Custer's death. 

The arduous campaign was too much for Major Thomp- 
son in his enfeebled condition. His surgeon had reported 



FIFTH GENERATION. 283 

him unable to endure the campaign, and he was directed 
to remain in command at Fort Ellis, but he succeeded in 
persuading his superior officers to order him to march. 
He was stricken down in the wilderness and was carried 
for miles on a litter at the heels of a mule, along the 
dusty trail of the army in pursuit of the enemy, and died 
July 19, 1876, less than a month after the Custer mas- 
sacre and was buried on a high terrace overlooking the 
Yellowstone River about one-half mile from the mouth 
of the Big Horn River. His body was taken up by his 
brother Lieutenant Charles Thompson of the Fifth United 
States Infantrj^ a year later ancl taken to Fort Leaven- 
worth, Kansas, from whence it was shipped home and 
buried at the Thompson Memorial Church, Solebury, 
Bucks county, Pennsylvania. He was unmarried. 

(372) MATILDA GORDON THOMPSON, only sur- 
viving daughter of Lewis and Rosanna (Gordon) Thomp- 
son, born in Philadelphia, November 22, 1840. graduated 
with distinction from the Normal School of Philadelphia, 
and was selected as teacher of English by the head of the 
First State Normal School, Millersville, Pennsylvania, 
but did not accept the offer. She was married March 11, 
1863, to Major General Rufus Saxton, and remained with 
him in the field during the remainder of the war, at 
Beaufort, ]\Iorris Island, and Charleston, South Carolina, 
and after the close of the war followed him to his differ- 
ent posts of command, at Atlanta, Georgia ; Buffalo, New 
York; Philadelphia; Fort Leavenworth, Kansas; the 
Presido, San Francisco, California; Portland, Oregon, 
and Washington, D. C, where she died July 17, 1915. 

General Rufus Saxton was born in Deerfield, Massa- 
chusetts, in 1824, and was a son of Jonathan and Miranda 
(Wright) Saxton. He graduated at West Point in 1849, 
and was appointed Lieutenant of Artillery. In 1853 he 
was assigned to duty on the Northern Pacific Railroad 
exploration and survey. 

From this time until the opening of the Civil War he 
was engaged in the Coast Survey, and was instructor in 
tactics at West Point. In 1861, he was Chief Quarter- 
master on the staff of General Lyon in his Missouri Cam- 
paign, afterward filling the same position under General 
McClellan in Western Virginia, and General Sherman in 
his Port Royal expedition. 

In May 1862, Brigadier General Saxton was appointed 
Military Governor of the Department of the South, and

on his way to Beaufort, South Carolina, the vessel on 
which he and his staff were passengers, was wrecked off 
Cape Hatteras, and they were carried by a passing steam- 
er to Fortress Monroe and returned to Washington, where 
he was summoned to the War Department and Secretary 
Stanton gave him the following order : — 

War Department, May 24, 1862. 
General Saxton: — 

You will please proceed with the troops from Wash- 
ington to Harper's Ferry, and operate with them as cir- 
cumstances may require, assuming command of them. 

EDWIN M. STANTON, Secretary of War. 

General Saxton remarked that he had just been ship- 
wrecked and had neither sabre, staff, nor mount, but that 
he would go to Harper's Ferry, as soon as possible. Presi- 
dent Lincoln, who was present in the Secretary's office 
said, "Dismount the first cavalryman you meet and take 
his horse and sabre." Within an hour he was on his way 
to Harper's Ferry, where he found a general panic over 
an expected attack by Stonewall Jackson's army. He at 
once took command and after inspecting the surrounding 
heights, determined to establish a heavy battery on Mary- 
land Heights, 2000 feet above sea level. The heavy guns 
were dragged to their positions by ropes and Battery 
Stanton commanded all approaches to Harper's Ferry be- 
fore the arrival of the enemy, by reason of which Jack- 
son's attack with a vastly superior force was successfullj 
repulsed. President Lincoln thanked General Saxton in 
person, and he was awarded a medal of honor by Con- 
gress, "for distinguished service and good conduct in 
the defense of Harper's Ferry, May 26, 1862, against 
the rebel command of General Stonewall Jackson." 
Secretary Stanton also telegraphed General Saxton, 
saying he reserved to say personally what he felt concern- 
ing the important service rendered the Government, and 
on June 17, 1862, sent him the following letter : — 

Brigadier General Rufus Saxton: — 

The thanks of this Department are cordially tendered 
you for your late able and gallant defense of Harper's 
Ferry against the rebel force under command of General 
Jackson. You were placed in command of that point 
at a moment of extreme danger, and under circum- 
stances of extraordinary difficulty. 

By your skill and gallantry, great service was ren- 
dered to the country, which I feel it the duty of this 
department to acknowledge and place on record, as- 
suring you at the same time of my personal confidence 
and regard. Yours truly 

EDWIN M. STANTON, Secretary of War 



FIFTH GENERATION. 285 

General Saxton was reappointed Military Governor of 
the Department of the South and also superintendent of 
the recruiting of colored troops. He had command of the 
Tenth Army Corps in the Beaufort District, and of the 
forces on Morris and John's Islands in the attack on 
Charleston. He was also appointed Commissioner for the 
Freedraan's Bureau for South Carolina, Georgia, and 
Florida until the end of the war. 

After the war he was Chief Quartermaster of the De- 
partment of the South, of the Department of the Lakes, 
of the Department of the Missouri, of the Columbia, and 
of the Military Division of the Pacific. He was succes- 
sively bre vetted Major, Lieutenant Colonel, Colonel, 
Brigadier General and Major General. After forty three 
years of active service, he was retired by action of law 
in 1892. He died in Washington, D. C, February 23, 
1908, at the age of eighty five years. He had no child- 
ren. 

(373) THOMAS NEELY THOMPSON, third son of 
Lewis and Rosanna (Gordon) Thompson, born in Phila- 
delphia, July 28, 1843, was in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1861, 
when the call for troops to put down the rebellion was 
made. He enlisted as a private in Colonel Frank Blair's 
Regiment, afterwards the Eighth Missouri Volunteers, 
in which he served for one year as a sergeant. He was 
then promoted to the rank of First Lieutenant in the 
Eighth Llissouri Regiment and was later brevetted Cap- 
tain for courage and gallant conduct on the field. 

In January 1863, he was appointed Captain in the sec- 
ond South Carolina Colored Regiment, afterward the 34th 
United States Regiment, and took part in several success- 
ful expeditions against the enemy on the coast of South 
Carolina, Georgia and Florida. 

On June 2, 1863, his command was landed at Field's 
Point, on the Combachee and held their position for six 
hours in the face of a fierce attack of the enemy in vastly 
superior numbers. He participated in the occupation of 
Jacksonville, Florida, and in Birney's expedition up the 
St. John's River. His Regiment also saw active service 
in the siege of Charleston, on Folly, Johns and Morris 
Islands; also under Seymour and Foster at Honey Hill, 
South Carolina. At the close of the war he was mustered 
out with impaired health. 

The interval between the end of the war and his final 
breakdown was filled with enterprise and adventure. 
His love of change of scene and new experiences and ad- 



286 THE THOMPSON FAMILY. 

ventures amounted to a fault in the eyes of persons of 
more comservative temperaments. He enlisted in the 
United States Marines in order to go around the world 
to see what it was like; was wrecked on U. S. S. Sacre- 
mento, when she was lost in the Indian Ocean off Oscana- 
da Harbor and with other survivors made his way across 
India on foot. He had scarcely reached home after this 
experience when he joined a Cuban Revolutionary expe- 
dition, and with his companions was saved from the 
Spanish garrote by being cast away on one of the Florida 
Keys, from which after three days exposure, he was pick- 
ed up and carried ashore by a passing steamer, being put 
ashore without hat or shoes. Some Cubans took care of 
him for a day or two when he joined a party of hmiters 
organized by Choteau to go to the far west after buffalo 
hides. 

In 1878, he was editing a paper in Indian Territory, 
and printing the laws in Choctaw. He urged the division 
of the Indian lands in severalty instead of being held by 
the tribe as common property. The heads of the "Blan- 
ket" Indians demanded his expulsion and he was arrested 
under orders of Carl Schurz, Secretary of the Interior, 
and transported with his newspaper material in a box 
car across the lines into Kansas. He always found 
friends who loved him for his sunny temper and his readi- 
ness to turn his hand to any pursuit that provided bread 
and new experience. He was granted a pension for dis- 
abilities resulting from his war experiences in 1880 and 
died in Cincinnatti, Ohio, after a prolono^ed illness, Janu- 
ary 2, 1897. He married April 22, 1864, Mrs. Catalina 
Flagg. They had no children. 

(374) CHARLES BURLEIGH THOMPSON, young- 
est son of Lewis and Rosanna (Gordon) Thompson, born 
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, July 30, 1846, was a stu- 
dent in Philadelphia High School when war broke out 
with the South, not yet fifteen years of age, but he ar- 
dently desired to join his brothers in the army. In re- 
sponse to a letter to Colonel Wm. I. Palmer, in command 
of the Anderson Cavalry, offering "Charlie" a position 
on his staff to look after his papers, etc., the boy was 
mustered into Anderson's Cavalry at Carlisle, Pennsyl- 
vania, June 18, 1862, but on account of his age and size, 
was discharged October 18, 1862. 

Failing to get into the Army, Charles B. Thompson, re- 
sumed his studies, and the care of his father who was in 
feeble health. He acquired a good education and became 



FIFTH GENERATION. 287 

a successful and alert business man. In the intervals 
of a business occupation he studied law and was admitted 
to the Philadelphia Bar, June 1881. 

On January 9, 1877, he was appointed Second Lieuten< 
ant in the Fifth United States Infantry commanded by 
Colonel Nelson A. Miles. He reported at once to Maj. 
Genl. Jefferson G. Davis, Colonel commanding the 23rd 
Infantry at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and was assigned 
for temporary duty with Companj^ D, commanded by 
Captain Thomas M. R. Smith. This company was in the 
field against hostile Indians and he applied for orders to 
join it. After considerable correspondence with head- 
quarters, he was ordered by General Sheridan to join the 
company, July 1st following. Being advised by his 
brother-in-law, General Rufus Saxton, and General Rob- 
ert Williams, to proceed to join his company in the field 
at once, he left Fort Leavenworth and reached Bis- 
marck, March 28, 1877, and made the trip of 237 miles to 
Fort Buford in a wagon train over the northern plains 
in the sleet and snow of a very inclement spring. He 
was made field Quartermaster of the expedition and reach- 
ed Colonel Miles' command on Tonque River, 160 miles 
up the Yellowstone, joining his command May 5, 1877. 

He participated in the fight of Little Rosebud, on May 
22, and was placed in command of Company F, which was 
made part of a Battalion of mounted infantry to guard 
the frontier and prevent the Indians, who had retreated 
to the British possessions after the Chester massacre, 
from entering the United States and participated in the 
continuous hard scouting necessary to accomplish the 
purpose for which the "dragoon" battalion was created, 
from June 14 to September 29, 1877. On the latter date 
he was detached from the mounted battalion and order- 
ed to Fort Ellis, Montana, a distance of 568 miles, to 
bring provisions. He suffered many privations and nar- 
row escapes from hostile savages. On December 26, 
1877, he again joined the mounted battalion with com- 
mand of his old company, and resumed the arduous 
scouting duty, driving back numerous bands of Sioux, un- 
til January 28, 1878, when he was thrown from his horse 
on a steep hillside and badly injured. He was first sent 
to Fort Keogh for treatment, and his injuries proving 
quite serious, he was given eighteen months sick leave, 
at the end of which he returned to the service. On March 
14, 1882, he was promoted to First Lieutenant, which po- 
sition he held until October 19, 1885, when he was ap-

pointed Regimental Quartermaster of his regiment. On 
September 30, 1889, he was relieved and assigned to 
Company G, at Ringold Barracks, Texas, where he was 
Post Quartermaster, Adjutant and Commissary. In Feb- 
ruary 1891, he was ordered on duty at the Infantry and 
Calvary School at Fort Leavenworth, and in July trans- 
ferred to Jackson Barracks, New Orleans. 

On November 2, 1891, he was appointed by President 
Harrison, Captain and Assistant Quartermaster, LTnited 
States Army, and on December 17, 1891, reported for duty 
at Washington, D. C. From February 24, 1892 to Dec- 
ember 12, 1894, he had charge of the erection of the new 
post at Madison Barracks, New York, at the end of which 
he was given six months sick leave. 

On April 15, 1895, he was put in charge of the con- 
struction of the Post at Little Rock, Arkansas, which he 
completed in November 1895. After another term of 
construction duty at Columbia Barracks, Ohio, he was 
Post Quartermaster at the Presido, San Francisco, from 
November 1, 1897, to June 21, 1898, when he was made 
Chief Quartermaster of the Department of California, 
with headquarters at San Francisco, which duty he per- 
formed throughout the war with Spain, as well as that 
of Post Quartermaster at the Presido. As a recognition 
of his services, he was appointed Major, and Chief 
Quartermaster of Volunteers. The letters and telegrams 
to the War Department from high officials, both military 
and civil, recommending this appointment as a recogni- 
tion of his services and ability, show a high appreciation 
of his character and abilities by those with whom he came 
in contact. He died August 17, 1901. He was unmar- 
ried.
