DANIEL THOMPSON, farmer, P. O. Millersburg; was born January 24, 1824
(see James H. Thompson's history for history of his people), and spent
his early life on the farm with his father until twenty-six years of age,
having in the meantime received some knowledge of books under the old
select school system, in an old log building with clapboard roof,
puncheon floor and split logs for seats, which constituted the seat of
learning at that day. In 1850, he was married to Elizabeth J. McClintock,
having by her three children, who, with the mother, are now dead. His
second marriage occurred Oct. 4, 1859, to Elizabeth Moore, who was born
Dec. 1, 1840, to James McClure and Margaret (Layson) Moore. By this
marriage there have been nine children born unto them; Mary A.,
June 26, 1860; Jas. Mc., Jan. 14, 1862; Margaret E., March 6, 1864;
John W., Feb. 11, 1866; Saml. D., March 28, 1868; infant daughter, dead;
French Moore, Nov. 1, 1873; Robert Presley, Oct. 23, 1876; Henry W.,
July 38, 1879. Mr. Thompson is quite extensively engaged in raising
thoroughbred short horns of the principal families, all his stock having
registered pedigrees. He is also superintending large farming interests.
In the summer of 1877 he suffered the loss of about $8,000 work of
property in the accidental burning of his dwelling and its effects. He
and his family are members of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian
Church on Hinkston.
