MOSES THOMPSON (deceased) was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, in 1816, and was reared on the farm, which he followed for an occupation during his life. In 1844, he was married to Elizabeth Whitehead, a native of New Jersey. After the celebration of his marriage, he came to Warren Co., and purchased the farm on which his widow now resides; he purchased the Eddie Drake land in Union Township, a place well known; he was almost a life long member of the Christian Church, and was an exemplary Christian gentleman, and was universally respected and esteemed by all who knew him. To their union eight children were born, five living, viz.: Marian, Sallie, Ada, Martha and Mary. The deceased are – John, Aaron and Reeder. John was a member of Company B, 79th O. V. I.; he died in Gallatin, Tenn., Feb. 9, 1863, aged 18 years. Although but a youth in years, he left the record of a good soldier, as he was ever at his post and ready to discharge every perilous duty. Mr. Thompson left at his death 149 acres of good land, which affords a comfortable home for his widow and two daughters, who yet reside on the old home place. John and Elizabeth Whitehead, parents of Mrs. Thompson, were natives of New Jersey, and settled in Union Township in 1818, in which they lived and died. Mr. Whitehead was born March 3, 1786; he was married in 1811. Mrs. Whitehead died July 9, 1833, of cholera; two of her children (daughters), fell victims to the same dreadful disease, the same week of her death. They were parents of six children, viz.: George, Ann E., Martha, Sarah A., Mary C. and Caroline. They (Mr. and Mrs. W.) were members of the Christian Church, as is their daughter, Mrs. T., who has been a member since 1833.
