I'm looking for any information &/or photographs of the James Thompson (b. 1832) family that owned the Thompson Mills in Valley Falls, Rensselaer, NY. He also founded James Thompson & Co, Inc in 1869 in Valley Falls.
He may have had 2 wives = Isabel(la) Curran & then Lucy E Larkin

His son James Thompson(Je?; b. 1861) who married Caroline Smodell (1861) may have then run the company. One of their daughters married into the Harrington family. Another daughter married Dr. Charles H. Sproat, MD.

James Thompson (Sr's) daughter, Hannah Celia Thompson (abt 1858), married Adam Lohnes (1856) and one of their sons James Thompson Lohnes (1882) was the superintendent of the Thompson Company Mills in the 1920's. He also married a Harrington -- Adah Nancy Harrington & had 2 children: James Thompson Lohnes (Jr?; 1908) & Marjorie Ball Lohnes (1911).

Any information on these people would be greatly appreciated. Any photographs that can be scanned and emailed to me would be fabulous!
