Welcome to the Thompson genealogy. Family units are arranged alphabetically by the first name of the father (or single-parent mother). Links are provided to enable you to move up and down each lineage. To follow a line back in time (ancestors), click on the underlined portion of "(son of ...)" or "(dau. of ...)" beneath the name of the person you want to trace back. To follow a line forward in time (descendants), click on the name of the person whose offspring you want to see. A plus sign (+) following a name means that that person had one or more children, but that family group has not been added to this web page. A link to documentation and notes, when available, is given below each family.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to museum@mdihistory.org or mailed to "Mount Desert Island Genealogy; Mount Desert Island Historical Society; P. O. Box 653; Mount Desert, Maine 04660". And, of course, please report all errors.

Notes:
   1Cornelius Thompson (husb. of Sally [...]) was apparently not called Cornelius Jr. even though his father's name was Cornelius. Instead, his son, who would normally be called Cornelius III, was called Cornelius Jr. according to his memorial stone.
   2The term "memorial stone" is used here because it is unlikely that this stone marks his actual grave. He died at sea.
