Joseph Thompson

Birth: estimated 1744

Spouse: Sarah Wheelock
Marriage: 13 Oct 1768, Charlton, Worcester, MA

  1. Marvel Thompson, born 10 Jan 1770
  2. Sarah Thompson, born 26 Feb 1772, Charlton, Worcester, MA
  3. Joseph Thompson, born 1 Apr 1783, probably Spencer, Worcester Co, MA
  4. Moses Thompson, born 1786, MA

Notes:

Joseph Thompson was born probably around 1744. He married Sarah Wheelock 13 Oct 1768 in Charlton. Joseph and Sarah apparently lived in Charlton until at least 1772, when their daughter, Sarah was born. They moved to Spencer, probably before 21 Aug 1777, when he served (from Spencer) in Samuel Denny's regiment, Lt. Col. Benjamin Flagg's division, marching to Hadley on an alarm.[2] Worcester County deeds confirm that he and his wife Sarah lived in Spencer in the years 1782 (Worc deed 86:197), 1789 (107:321), and 1791 (115:279).[3] He is enumerated in the 1790 census living there.[4]

Neither Sarah nor Joseph appear in Spencer or Charlton in the 1800 census, nor do they appear in the Worcester County land records or vital records after 1791.

There is, however, a Joseph Thompson of the right age in the 1800 census living in Augusta, Oneida Co, NY.[5] He also appears on a list of taxpayers in Augusta in 1799. Other members of his extended family were known to have moved to Augusta in a similar time frame (e.g. Edward Wheelock, Jabez Howe, and Chapin Kelley), so it is plausible that it could be the same Joseph Thompson.[6]

Ancestry:

The ancestry of Joseph Thompson is unknown. There were two families with the Thompson surname that lived in Charlton during the 1700s - the family of John Thompson (1689 - 1756) and his second wife, Abigail Thayer (1701 - 1756), and the family of John Thompson's son, John, Jr. (1721 - ???) and his wife Ruth Merritt.[7] Both families lived in the County Gore, and had frequent interactions with the Wheelocks, including intermarriages, and guardianships. It seems likely that Joseph was a member of one of these families, each of which has room for him in the birth sequence. However, vital and probate records do not support the claim.

The Thompson families of Charlton also had many associations with the Merritt families. Several of John and Abigail's children married members of the Merritt family, including Ruth (mentioned above), as well as Henry and Job Merrit, brothers. Joseph Thompson sold land in Charlton to Job Merritt (Worc deed 99:609). Job was the husband of Hannah Thompson, suggesting a possible kinship between Joseph Thompson and Hannah (e.g. siblings).

Children:

Besides the two children recorded in Charlton (Sarah and Marvel), the vital records of Charlton and Spencer contain no indication of other children born to Joseph Thompson and Sarah Wheelock. However, eight family members are enumerated in the 1790 census - three young boys, two older men, and three females - suggesting that there were additional children.

There is another tantalizing clue in the Spencer Vital Records to 1850. On 18 Aug 1811, Joseph Thompson "of Augustia, NY" married Patty Bemis (whose brother also married into the Wheelock family). This could easily be the son of Joseph Thompson and Sarah Wheelock.[8]

There are additional clues to support the claim. Sarah (Wheelock) Thompson's niece, Mary (Polly) Converse, kept a diary between the years 1804 and 1809. She frequently mentions members of the Thompson family - not surprising since her mother-in-law is Elizabeth (Thompson) Wheelock, daughter of John and Abigail, and her aunt is Sarah (Wheelock) Thompson, wife of Joseph. Her diary contains multiple references to Joseph Thompson and Moses Thompson. The references are characteristic of those to her own age group. They lack the "Mr." that she uses when referencing her elders. Moses Thompson boarded at her house in Dec 1806, and Joseph Thompson boarded at her house in Nov 1807 (perhaps on visits). In June 1808 Polly Converse notes that she wrote a letter to Joseph and Moses Thompson.

Joseph Thompson is likely the same man from Augusta, NY that married Patty Bemis in Spencer. The following paragraph discusses the likelihood that Moses is his brother.

In 1811 Joseph moved to Aurora, Erie Co, NY, per Gazetteer and Biographical Record of Genesee County, N.Y., 1788-1890, by Frank Beers, p 313.[9] His biography states that he married Martha Bemis - consistent with the Spencer marriage record (Patty being a recognized nickname for Martha). Joseph, born circa 1783 in Massachusetts, is enumerated in the 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1855, and 1860 census records, living in Aurora with his wife, Martha. In 1865 Martha appears to have died, and he is living in the household of Moses Thompson, Jr, his nephew (per NY state census). The relationship of "nephew" directly implies that Joseph Thompson, and the father of Moses Thompson, Jr. (presumably also named Moses Thompson) are brothers. Supporting this conclusion is the fact that Moses Thompson, born about 1786 in Massachusetts, is also enumerated in the 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1855, 1860, 1865, and 1870 census records, living in Aurora. His 2 Nov 1876 Erie County will (probate case 22590) identifies a son name Moses Thompson, confirming the existence of a "Moses Jr." as implied by the 1865 NY state census, which shows Joseph living with his nephew, Moses Thompson, Jr.[10]

The final piece of evidence connecting Joseph Thompson and his wife, Martha Bemis to Sarah (Wheelock) Thompson, and her husband Joseph is this: the same bundle of records containing Polly Converse's diary also contains vital records for the family of Patty Bemis and Joseph Thompson, along with family group sheets for other cousins and close relatives of Polly Converse. This bundle of records was handed down from Polly Converse through many generations of her descendants, and is now part of the manuscripts collection at the New England Historic and Genealogical Society in Boston. The existence of the Joseph Thompson Patty Bemis family group sheet strongly suggests that Joseph Thompson and Martha Bemis were close relatives of Polly Converse, probably her cousins.
