  • Notes 
    • William David Thompson was born 28 February 1852 in Randolph County, Missouri. He married Lydia Esther Runyen on 18 October 1875. Lydia was born 31 March 1853 in Lawrence, Dearborn, Indiana. She was the daughter of Robert Runyen and Elizabeth Ann Gibson.

      They lived their early married life in Randolph County from approximately 1875 to 1879. They then moved to Lamar in Barton County, Missouri. Lydia's parents also lived in Lamar. In 1886 they moved to Chariton County, Missouri. They owned land in Westville community southeast of Marceline, Missouri. They raised cattle and other crops. William was also a carpenter and worked on the World's Fair building in St. Louis.

      William was in one of the Oklahoma Land Rushes, not sure which one for sure, but I did find a William Thompson listed in the 22 April 1889 rush, which gave birth to Stillwater, OK. I found William living in Stillwater City, Oklahoma in 1900 with two of his children, John and Wayne.

      William bought some property in Payne County, OK on 12/15/1898 from Frederick Scott for $1000.00 and sold the same property for $2400.00 to William Hodges on 4/15/1904. I was told that when William sold the property, it caused some sort or rift in the family. No one alive knows the details.

      Lydia Esther died of cancer at the Christian Church Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri on 23 April 1924. She was buried at Locke Cemetery, southeast of Marceline, near Mike, Missouri on 26 April 1924.

      William David died of pneumonia on 6 May 1927 and was buried 8 May 1927 in Locke Cemetery also.
