Re: Anne Getty

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
