  • Notes 
    • George Edwin Thompson was born 4 May 1886 in Chariton County, Missouri. He left home in 1906 when he was about 20 and went to Burlington, Colorado and raised mules and built sod houses and took up homesteading. George married while in Colorado, but that marriage didn’t last. After seven years, about 1914, he went to Canada. He stayed with William Huxley McMillan and later married his daughter, Jessie Isabel McMillan on 26 December 1916.

      George lived in Alberta, Canada. He was naturalized on 22 June 1920 and became a Canadian citizen.

      Jessie had a son before her and George were married, Norman Stanley McMillan, who was born 25 May 1916 and died 4 October 1971 in a car accident. Norman had one child, Terry Jane.

      George and Jessie had eight children together, all born in Big Prairie District, Alberta, Canada.

      George returned to visit his brothers in the mid 1940’s and then made several trips back after that.

      In March 1944, George and Jessie divorced. He died at Calgary, Alberta, Canada on 13 November 1983 and is buried in Okotoks Cemetery in High River, Alberta, Canada. He was 97 years old. Jessie died April 1955.
