  • Notes 
    • William Ernest Floyd Thompson was born 23 September 1881 in Lamar, Barton County, Missouri. About 1886 his parents moved to Chariton County, Missouri to the Westville community. On 30 October 1906 he married Viola Mae Graves with Reverend Alexandra officiating. Viola was born 7 July 1890 and was the daughter of Thomas Graves and Tina Brooks. They lived in Mike, Missouri.

      William and Viola lived on a farm in Westville across the road from his parents. All of their children were born at this farm. After the birth of their last child, Dolores, they moved to a farm near Rothville, Missouri; and then they moved to a large farm northeast of Salisbury, Missouri. Later they retired and lived in Salisbury. Besides farming, William was a carpenter.

      William died at his home in Salisbury on 6 January 1967 and the services were held at the Salisbury Methodist Church on 8 January 1967. He died from a stroke. Viola died at her home in Salisbury on 15 July 1968 and her funeral services were also held at the Salisbury Methodist Church. They are both buried at the Salisbury City Cemetery in Salisbury, Missouri.
