John and Elizabeth Thompson Family

Classification: Query
Surnames: Thompson McMillan
We are trying to find information on what happened to Elizabeth/Isabella Thompson (Isabella 1871 census and Elizabeth 1881census) after the 1881 census. She is the daughter of the subject persons and was born abt 1863 in Ontario. Her parents, John and Elizabeth, were born (depending on the census) btwn 1834-1838 and 1833-1840, respectively. The Thompson's lived in Hawkesbury East, Prescott from at least 1871 through the 1911 census. We don't know what happened to any of the other family at this point. Daughter, Elizabeth/Isabella Thompson, maybe a g-grandmother.

As some background, we have been trying for a number of years to find our g-grandmother's Thompson family without any success whatsoever in the Ontario and Quebec area. Her name was Elizabeth (Eliza) Thompson and she married Hugh John McMillan. From census records, Elizabeth was born about Nov. 1868 in Ontario. Hugh (Ewen 1881 census and Huci 1891 census) and his family (parents John and Mary Ann) lived in the Hawkesbury, Lochiel, Finch, Longueuil area of Ontario. We believe that Eliza and Hugh met there somehow. Their first child, John Richard McMillan, was born 1887 in Montreal from most records. Hugh and Eliza and their family moved to North Dakota in 1897 where Elizabeth died in 1906 from tonsillitis. Even though the above Elizabeth/Isabella Thompson was born on an earlier date than the person we are looking for, she did live in the same area as Hugh and so we are down to researching anyone that might somewhat fit the profile.

There was an Elizabeth Thompson b. Nov 1869 in West Garafraxa, Ont. to Theodore Thompson and Mary Ann McGowen but that turned out to be a false lead.

Any tidbits of information (marriage, etc.) on Elizabeth/Isabella Thompson would be greatly appreciated.
