A. L. THOMPSON, farmer, P. O., Loveland, was born in Hamilton Co., Ohio, in the year 1842, and is a son of John Thompson, a gentleman of Scotch parentage. Our subject received the rudiments of his education in the district schools, which was afterward developed at the Farmers’ College, of which institution he is a graduate. In 1861 he enlisted in Burdsall’s 4th Cav.; served three months and then enlisted in the three years’ service. With him were his brothers James and William. John, another brother, enlisted in 1864 in the 10th Cav. James came home Lieut. Col. of the 4th Cav., having seen active service all through the war and participated in many of the hard-fought battles of the war. He was taken prisoner in front of Atlanta while trying to save one of his men. Our subject was quarter-master and forage-master most of the time he was out. All were honorably discharged at the close of the war. After his return home he engaged in the grocery and livery business, each in its turn, and eventually, on account of his wife’s ill-health, in 1880 purchased a farm of 128 acres on which he resides. In 1866 he was married to Miss Lydia Hunter, who was born in England. To them two children have been born, viz: Charles H. and Jessie.
