Ann (McCarty) Thompson


Saturday, January 8, 1876, Mrs. Ann Thompson, wife of John H. Thompson, in her 75th year.

Mrs. Thompson’s maiden name was McCarty. She was born and raised on Turtlecreek, not far from where Monfort’s Flouring Mill now stands. She retained the physical vigor of her prime to a surprising degree, and thoroughly enjoyed life and its blessings. She was a self-reliant, quiet nature, loyal to her her church and the community around her; ardent in her friendships, quick in her sympathies, interested in the welfare of all.

At a camp-meeting held in 1842, on the farm now owned by Mr. Perrine, she made a profession of her faith in Christ, and very soon thereafter joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. During the years of her connection with the church her life was a consistent one. Her profession was not demonstrative, but quiet and evenly. Her last days bore witness to the ripening of her Christian character, and she met death submissive to God’s will, and trustful in the love of Christ. Strong evidence of this was given in her last charge to the family and intimate friends, to meet her in the “glorious home” beyond.

May the children follow in the foot-steps of their mother, so far as she followed her Saviour.

Services held in the C. P. Church, in Lebanon, on the Tuesday following, at 11 o’clock, conducted by Rev. J. P. Sprowls, pastor.

Mr. Monfort was one of the oldest citizens of the county, having lived to be 92 years of age. Mr. Thompson had passed the three score and ten mark. He was a veteran of the civil war and probably drew the largest pension of any private soldier in the county. He had drawn $72 monthly for the past 22 years and no one begrudged him it. He and his wife only lately celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
