Thanks for contacting me. Anne Getty Thompson married Watson Thompson October 1, 1840. Watson deserted Anne on July 30, 1860. Anne had several children, one was my g,g,g,grandmother Kate and a son, Laughery Thompson. Laughrey was killed during the Civil War. Anne applied for a pension based on the fact that Watson had deserted her and her only son had been killed in the War and she had no means of support. I have all the documentation from the War Department for her application. That's really all I know about Watson Thompson and I have no knowledge of when or where he died.
I have my Watson Thompson born in 1811. Anne applied for the pension in May of 1866. Do we have the same Watson Thompson? Dianne Green
