Johordia THOMPSON

SOURCE: Michael K. Hendrix Family - http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mhendrix&id=I01313

Name: Johordia\Jehoida THOMPSON
Sex: M
Birth: 6 MAY 1793 in Rutherford Co., NC
Death: 29 APR 1872 in Franklin Co., AR
Burial: Shiloh Cem., Franklin Co., AR
Note:
Johordia Thompson was the son of William Thompson and Mary Tabor. William Thompson was born
in NC and was an early settler of Tennessee. Mary Tabor was born in NC of Irish parents and lived almost all of her life in TN where she died at almost 100 years of age. Johordia grew to maturity in Rutherford Co., NC and may have fought in the War of 1812 as a private under Gen. Andrew Jackson.

Johordia and Margaret were married about 1817 in Rutherford Co. and about 1820 moved near Knoxville in Anderson Co., TN. The family moved about 1827 to McMinn Co., TN and lived there for about 5 years. They moved to the Cherokee Nation in Tennessee for about one year before moving to Walker Co., Georgia (probably near the community of LaFayette) about 1832. The family lived in Walker Co. for about 40 years before moving to Floyd Co., GA toward the end of the Civil War. Four or five of Johordia's sons died in the Civil War and Johordia is believed to have been mistreated (and possibly blinded) by outlaws during the War. Margaret died on 4 Nov. 1867 in Walker Co. and is buried in the Chattanooga Cemetery near Lafayette in Walker Co., GA. About 1871, many of the Thompson family members and friends moved to Franklin Co., Arkansas. Johordia died in Franklin Co., AR on 29 Apr. 1872 at an age of 80 years and is buried in the Shiloh Cemetery near the community of Ozark.

The Civil War was a terrible experience for everyone in America, and the Thompson family was no exception. The following is an account furnished by Dr. Kathryn Presley, a descendant of John Dial Thompson:

"Virginia Dial Thompson is one of the family mysteries/secrets from the John Dial line. Her mother, Nancy Jane Vaughn Thompson, tried to keep John Dial at home. They had no slaves and she told him that the war was a "rich man's war and a poor man's fight". But he went, regretting it almost instantly. He fought (along with his brother Caswell Cobb) under Lee and Stonewall Jackson. They were often hungry and seldom knew what they were doing (in his letter, he thinks he's near "Chickamaugie" when it's actually the Chickahominy in Virginia). He was wounded slightly and was sent to Danville, VA to a hospital where he caught smallpox and died. Meanwhile, Nancy Jane and her family were dealing with Sherman and later the battle of Chickamauga. Sherman's men drove off her cattle and took her food, except for a few potatoes, turnips, etc. She and her younger sister tracked the cattle down, leaving the babies with my grandfather and a sickly older brother. A kindly Yankee officer let her have the milk cow to take home for the children. Note that her last child, Virginia Dial (we called her Aunt Diallie) was
born 11 months after John Dial's death and nearly two years after he left home! Some of our staider relatives have always maintained that the birth date was in error, but it shows up the same in several different places. Others of us suspect suspect that she was raped on that trip after the cows or by the same group that beat up Johordia. Who knows? Anyway, I am touched that she named the baby Virginia (after the place John died) and Dial (his middle name), seemingly determined to claim it as his child. Nancy Jane was quite a gal! My Aunt Edna remembers her and I have several pictures, the Indian blood being apparent. I'm proud to be named for her and for Catherine Elizabeth Hughs Thompson. I was (am) Kathryn Jane Thompson."

The letter to which she refers above was probably sent along with a letter from brother Casswell. These
letters offer an insight into the realities of the war. Transcripts of these letters follow:

July 6, 1862
(In the line of Battle, 35 miles north east of Chickamaugie Creek.)
Dear Wife,

I am at this time presented by kind Providence to seat myself and send you these lines to inform you that I am not very well. I am suffering some with diarrhea. John is not very well, he has a bad cold and a severe coff. He is hardly able to be about. Ever hoping these lines may reach you and finding you all enjoying good health. We all are nearly worn out from marching. Nearly all of our company are sick and complaining. We are in line of battle and have been ever since day before yesterday. We received your's and Nancy's and Henry's kind letters dated 8th and 11th of June. We was happy to receive them and glad to hear that you all were well. We would be very glad to see you all but we can not enjoy that pleasure now. But we do hope this war will soon close and we may all get home. (Direct your letters to Richmond). Sarah, you asked to know if you did right in fencing the mare. You do the best you can with her in selling her colt this fall. I understand that Mr. Sharp is somewhere here in camp and if I get to see him I will tell him to sell her and if not you sell her. You can do the best you can..Sarah, you and Nancy must write soon and often. I would be glad to hear from you every week if I could. We was in battle on Friday, the 27th of June and came very near being in one on Tuesday after. Some of our men got wounded with bombs. Another of our company got his hand torn to pieces. We had to throw away our blanket and shirts before we were in the fight and have nothing to cover with except oil cloth we picked up on the battle ground. We also picked up two good linsey shirts. Tell all the connections to write to us as we are very anxious to hear from them all.

C. C. and John D. Thompson

Nancy, I wood like to see you and the children but I no that is impossible. I want you to do the best you can and remember me. We expect to travel with Stonewall Jackson in persute of the enemy. He is sed to be a grate fighter. Father, I would like to see you and talk with you for I cannot write and do not have time to write but I can think of you and all this leaves me in common health.

John Dial Thompson

Casswell Cobb Thompson was killed at the Battle of Sharpsburg, MD just over two months after these letters were written. John Dial Thompson was apparently wounded shortly after writing the letter and was sent to a battlefield hospital near Danville, VA where he later died of smallpox.

William THOMPSON

SOURCE: Michael K. Hendrix Family: William Thompson was born in North Carolina about 1760 and his father was David Thompson (possibly an Irish immigrant) who died about 1801 in Rutherford Co., NC. William also had a sister Eleanor who married a [ ? ] McMurry. William Thompson enlisted in the Revolutionary War while residing in Rutherford Co., NC and served under Lt. Col. Samuel Hammond in a South Carolina regiment. He fought in the battles of King's Mountain and Eutaw Springs and served 30 days during 1782. The family settled in Rutherford Co., NC and very little has been found concerning William Thompson from 1784 until he left for Tennessee about 1808. From records of Pendleton Co., SC, a William Thompson was one of the earliest settlers in this area. On 30 Nov. 1801, he and his wife Mary sold land on Rocky River granted to them 15 Oct. 1784, to Drury Thompson, enumerated in 1800 in the Anderson Co. area.

William Thompson and Mary Tabor were probably married in Rutherford Co., NC about 1784. They
raised all of their children there before moving to Anderson Co., TN about 1808. William Thompson is
said to have fought in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815 under General Andrew Jackson (as stated in the
"Goodspeed" bibliography for Henry Thompson for Crawford Co., AR). However, this seems unlikely if
he died in 1811. Obviously, one of these "facts" is incorrect. Mary (Tabor) Thompson was allowed a
pension on an application executed on 4 Feb. 1840 while she was residing in Anderson Co., TN, at age 77 years (FPA W1001; BLWt. 5209-160-55; AA7756; L205; M24; PI). All of the names and birth dates of the children of William and Mary Thompson are given in this pension application.
