The John, Elizabeth and John Jr on 1911 census don't really match up with the information on 1901 census. If people get their birth years wrong they usually know their birth month. But enumerators are known to make many mistakes.

Don't know if this is of any use to you but may be a way to track Elizabeth.

I think this is the James on 1901 census.
WW1 Attestation Papers
James Stanley Thompson, PC960607, b 1 July 1897 at St Eugene Ont, farmer, next of kin: John Thompson, grandfather of RR1 St Eugene Ont. Signed up in Ottawa 6 July 1918.
No record of his being killed.

St Eugene is in Hawkesbury Tsp, Prescott County.

James Stanley Proudfoot, b 1 July 1897, mother Jane Thompson. Prescott.
Would seem he went by Thompson not Proudfoot. I didn't find anything under the Proudfoot name.

McMurray Family Tree on has your Thompsons on it.
Says John Thompson died 1901 in Frontenac County. No source given.
Marriage to Elizabeth Keller 27 Oct 1861 in Frontenac. No source given.
All the children's names are the same as on 1881 census.
Only information re chidren is for John Pauley, says he was born in Frontenac and died there as well. Nothing in his obit says who his parents were.
Your Thompsons always seemed to live in Hawkesbury.

Found this marriage
Jennie Thompson, 24, born and living St Eugene Ont, d/o John Thompson & Elizabeth MacDuff, married James Clark, 28, carter, born and living Mabel Quebec, s/o John Clark & Bella McAllister, 13 May 1903. Prescott.

Elizabeth Jane b 1876, mother of James Stanley?
She is the only Thompson I can find married in Prescott.

1911 Chatham, Argentuil Quebec
James, March 1874, 37, Quebec
Jennie, Sept 1875 ,32, Ont
Thelma, 6 [transcribed as Helena but I think it is Thelma]
???, son, 1908, 3
Harriette, 1910, 1
Chidren all born Quebec.
Thelma Isabell Clark was born 3 March 1905, bapt 18 Dec 1913 at Dalesville Baptist Church. Parents James John Clark and Jennie Elizabeth Thompson.
Irwin James Clark b 22 Jan 1908, baptism as above.
Kenneth George Clark, b 1 Mar 1910, baptism as above.

Next door, on 1911 census, is Albert Thompson,b 1864 Ont, who may well be her brother.

John Thompson
Birth Place: St. Andrews, Quebec, Canada
Residence: East Hawkesbury
Age: 28
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1836
Father Name: Joseph Thompson
Mother Name: Margaret Sims
Spouse Name: Elizabeth Leduc
Spouse's Age: 29
Spouse Birth Year: abt 1835
Spouse Birth Place: East Hawkesbury
Spouse Residence: East Hawkesbury
Spouse Father Name: John McDuff
Spouse Mother Name: Isabella McColum
Marriage Date: 10 Nov 1864
Marriage County or District: Prescott

A lot of the above names fit in with their children's names- Isabella, John, Marguerite, Joseph.
If they got married in 1864 perhaps the older children aren't Elizabeth's. It doesn't say whether either one of them is single or widowed on the original registration.

Mary McKeddie
Birth Place: Chatham Prv Quebec
Age: 20
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1869
Father Name: John McKeddie
Mother Name: Margaret McGregor
Spouse Name: Albert Thompson
Spouse's Age: 22
Spouse Birth Year: abt 1867
Spouse Birth Place: East Hawkesbury
Spouse Father Name: John Thompson
Spouse Mother Name: Lozzie McDuff
Marriage Date: 12 Sep 1889
Marriage County or District: Prescott

There was a female McMillan b 8 Sept 1888 in Prescot. This could be Catharine A on 1891 census.

I've tried every trick I know to find their marriage and baptism of son but no luck.
Sometimes on the children's birth registration it gives place and date of marriage of parents. This is in Ontario so if they had more children in North Dakota it may be worth looking for.
