8 — Isaac Thomson, born 1751, in Pennsylvania; died in the summer of
1823 at Middlefield, Ohio, aged 72 years. Pension records show that he
enlisted in the Revolutionary War first as a private at Carlisle, Pa.,
county seat of Cumberland which then included what is now Juniata and
adjacent counties. He re-enlisted as a lieutenant in 1777. It is a tradition
in the family that he was accustomed to ride to Harrisburg to collect the
money due from the United States Government which the state had
assumed to pay. When informed that payment would not be made in
full, he told the committee that they were a lot of thieves and refused
to accept anything. Robert Thompson, probably his brother — 7 — after-
wards collected in part, sending the money to Isaac Thompson who had
then left Pennsylvania. Isaac Thompson owned the farm at the east of
the homestead of Pioneer John Thomson in Juniata County, Pa., which
he sold to his brother William — 3 — on Apr. 2"], 1779, the year and probably
the month of his father's death. In 1 781-3 he was taxed on a saw-mill
and in 1782-3 on a grist-mill in Fermanagh Township, Juniata County, Pa.
It was probably in 1783 that he began his wanderings which took him
first to the western part of Pennsylvania, then to New York State and
finally to Geauga County, Ohio. He was referred to by other members
as "Old Uncle Isaac" and by some as "Lost Uncle Isaac" for reasons that
will be apparent from the following excerpts from the "Pioneer History
of Geauga, Ohio." "The first permanent settlement in Middlefield was
made in March, 1799, by Isaac Thompson and his wife Jane, and three
sons, James, William and John — the last a child two months old ; also a
daughter, Eliza, aged 3 years. The family was originally from Wash-
ington County, Pa., leaving that place about 1795. Their first settle-
ment was on the Genessee River, in the state of New York, where they
resided one year. From there they started for the unbroken wilds of the
west. Their route was down the river, to Lake Ontario by boat ; up the
lake and Niagara River to the falls. Hauling their boat around Niagara,
with a team, they re-embarked, ascending the river to lake Erie, coasting
on the lake as far as Erie harbor, where they were overtaken by a storm,
and lost everything except the clothes upon their persons. From Erie
they hauled their boat across country to a stream called French Creek,
coasted down the creek to the Ohio River, and down the river to a little
village called Charlestown, on the Virginia side. At Allegheny they left
Sarah Wells, a daughter of Mrs. Thompson by her first husband. The
family resided in Charlestown about two years; became disgusted with
the society ; packed up their goods and started up the river, leaving
their daughter Polly, aged 13, with an acquaintance on the Ohio side
of the river. Arriving at the mouth of Beaver River, they found an
empty cabin, in which they stored a part of their goods, packing the re-
mainder on an old horse they brought with them from Charlestown, and

mounting the wife and child also on the horse, the husband on foot, they
started for the lake, with no road but an Indian trail. The son James,
had gone to Mentor the spring before. In the January following this
date their son John Thompson was born. They remained in Mentor
until the middle of March, and started for the Ohio River. They
stopped for the night at a place later known as Johnson's corners, in a
cabin occupied by two men, Hill and Lemoin. They selected a site on
the blazed road running from Fairport Harbor, Lake Erie, to the Ma-
honing River at Warren, Ohio, and near the center of the township. Hill
and Lemoin helped them build a cabin and soon after left for parts
unknown, leaving them the first permanent settlers in the township.
"The first white person born in the limits of the township, was a daughter
of Isaac Thompson (88 — Lydda), on the 6th of Apr., iSoi." About two
weeks after the birth of Thompson's daughter, in 1801, he and his son
James, located a lot of land in Richmond, near the mouth of Grand
River. While (away), working on this land, two Indians came to their
house in Middlefield, acting in a cowardly, sneaking manner ; peering
through the cracks of the house, talking low, and conducting themselves
badly. After more ill behavior they left. The family was thoroughly
frightened, and the more so for knowing the Indians to be bad char-
acters. One was part French and could speak English well. Mother
Thompson was not well, and besides herself and babe, she had only her
son William, a lad of 12 years, and a hired girl. They expected the
Indians back the coming night. The boy and hired girl barricaded every
entrance to the house, and by night, had a pretty strong fortress. As
soon as it was dark, they put out the light and fire, and huddled in one
corner and listened, in terrible suspense, for the cat-like tread of the
Indians. Soon a step was heard. Some one approached the door and
knocked. No sound within. Then a louder rap. Then conversation in
English. The inmates began to take courage, and enquired : "Who is
there, and what is wanted?" The answer came: "We are travelers, and
want supper and lodging; we are friends." Being satisfied they were
friendly, they quickly unbarred the door, and were overjoyed to see
two stalwart white men walk in. They were soon furnished with supper,
the best the house afforded. When Mother Thompson told the men of
the visits of the Indians, they put their rifiles in order, and laid them-
selves down before the fire. About midnight, one of the Indians came and
opened the door, looking in very cautiously. He saw the two men, and
hurriedly withdrew and disappeared in the darkness, and was never seen
afterwards. In the summer of 1823, Isaac Thompson sickened and died,
after a residence of a little over 24 years in a new country, and most
of the time in an unbroken wilderness. Enduring hardships and priva-
tions almost unheard of in any country, he quietly fell asleep in death,
honored and respected by all who knew him. At the time he settled in
the Genessee country, it was very new, as also was his sojourn on the
Ohio River; at Charlcstown, Va., in an almost unbroken wilderness.
The same is true of his stay in Mentor, and of his final settlement in

Middlefield, when all thinps were in a primeval state. Mr. Thompson
was a lieutenant in the Revolutionary War, and connected with the
body guard of General Washington. He drew a pension from the gov-
ernment, and to obtain his money he was obliged to travel all the way to
Pittsburg (this should be Harrisburg) for each installment. At the time
of his death he was ^2 years old. His widow survived him about 19
years. We consider grandmother Thompson, one of the most useful
women who ever lived in the township. By the sickness in her own
family and amongst neighbors, she acquired considerable knowledge of
the medicinal properties of roots and herbs and barks, which grew in
the woods. She was useful as a nurse and also as a physician. In those
early times, there were but few doctors, and those not the best ; grand-
mother having many calls, both in town and out of town ; for her fame
as a nurse had extended far and near. Perhaps no woman that ever
lived in our town, or ever will live here, so much endeared herself to all
the people of the town as this good old lady. She died in 1842, without
an enemy in the world, aged seventy-eight. Isaac Thompson was twice
married. His first wife, whom he married at about the end of the
Revolutionary War, was Martha Larimore of Philadelphia. Issue (i)
James, (2) John, (3) Polly, (4) William. He married secondly Mrs.

Si — James Thompson, Ixirn 1779 in Pennsylvania; died Oct. 15, 1877, at
Middlefield, Ohio. He accompanied "Old Uncle Isaac Thompson" on
his wanderings through western Pennsylvania and New York into
Ohio, and having become tired of the nomadic life, compelled the
family to halt in Geauga County, Ohio. He became a man of influence
in that community, and organized a company in the War of 1812. He
was twice married: first to Sarah Wells, daughter of his step-mother
Martha Jane (Evans) and Benjamin Wells. Issue (i) Isaac Newton,

daughter of Gilbert and Deborah (Woodworth) Tracy and grand-
daughter of Ezra and Jemima (Kimball) Tracy and of Jonathan
and Mercy (Parker) Woodworth. Gilbert Tracy (born 1761 at Preston,
Conn.; died 1841 at Scipio, N. Y.) was in the army during the entire
period of the Revolution; he served in the brigade commanded by
Lafayette. He was a descendant of Thomas Tracy, who came to
Salem, Mass., in 1636, and in 1659 was one of the four men granted
the town of Norwich, Conn., by Uncas, Sachem Mohegans, in gratitude
for services rendered when besieged by Sachem Narragansetts. He sat
in the Colonial Assembly for twenty sessions, and was lieutenant in the
Indian wars. Issue (7) Philander Tracy, (8) Mary, (9) Clarinda,

the English Queen Anne, came with his family of several children to
Antietam Creek, Md., in 1745. Among the children was Adam (the
ancestor), born at sea. Adam married Elizabeth Cochran from the
west coast of Ireland. He held a captain's commission in the Revolu-
tion, was detailed to border warfare, became an Indian fighter, and
was in many battles that are recorded in the histories dealing with
that period. The fight of which most has been written was that
known as the fight with Big Foot on the banks of the Yellow Creek.
In this battle the Wyandotte nation was practically exterminated. In
1910, the citizens of Stark County, Ohio, erected a monument in
commemoration of his services. Among his children was Andrew
(the ancestor), who married Nancy Hoy, daughter of Charles Hoy,
of York County, Pa., and there was born to them 12 children. Daniel
