STORY: The Rev. Lawson Clancy Thompson name was given to me by Ken Fiebelman of Salem, Dent County, Missouri who said his information came from a granddaughter of Lawson whom I believe was Rachel. One granddaughter was Rachel Lunn, born in 1886, and could have known her grandfather who died about 1889. If the grand daughter was Rachel Nesbit, born 1876, then she would have remembered a grandfather who died 1889. My notes don't show which Rachel he meant. (Thompson is not one of Ken's line.) I have no document to show his name to be 'Clancy' but do find him performing marriages in Dent and Texas counties in Missouri. The earliest marriages are in Texas County on 26 March 1856 and 17 March 1856 as Methodist E. So. Minister (source: "Texas County, Missouri Marriages Vol. A 1855-1880" on LDS film number 0931629 at Salt Lake City, UT on 14 Feb 1996). Dent County, Missouri Marriages: (Marriage Book A p78) earliest date found 20 Feb 1860 marriage of Thomas SOLOMON and Lucy A. GRAY. Latest date (Marriage Book A p198) dated 7 Sept 1868 marriage of Daniel JAYNS and Sarah CAUSEY. Also performed marriage 24 June 1868 [for] Elsberry GRAY and Mary HENLSEY. 1833 September 30 - Lauson Thompson sold his interest in their father James' estate to Royal Thompson for $150 [Source: James' probate packet in Box 71 Bundle 1357, Cape Girardeau Co, MO film #715-028 probate records (research date Aug 1999 at Jackson, MO library)]. 1840 Census - Lawson Thompson, also enumerated are: 2 males under 5 (one is probably Royal age 4 [born 1836], but the other is unknown, 1 male 5-10 (unknown), 1 male 30-40 [Lawson age 33-35]; females 3 under 5 [both unknown], 2 female 5-10 [unknown], 1 female 20-30 [probably Mary b1810-1820]. That makes 2 unknown males and 3 unknown females, but are they children of Lawson? [Source: 1840 U.S. Census, Population Schedule, Cape Girardeau County, Missouri, Apple Creek Township, page 237, line 19]. 1850 Census Cape Girardeau County, Missouri - Lawson 45, born North Carolina, Mary 39 born Tennessee, and family:  In 1852 October 14 -  Lawson and Mary Thompson quit claim land to Thomas S Harris [Source: Deed Book S: 554-555. County Clerk's Office, Cape Girardeau Co, Missouri]. Another source of Lawson Thompson in Texas County, Missouri: "Mr and Mrs Lawson THOMPSON and Mary E THOMPSON transferred 1879." [Source: Texas County, Missouri Genealogical and Historical Society newsletter, October 1984, list of members and pastors of the Licking Methodist Episcopal Church, South 1871-1887, p 7.  It doesn't say to what church they transferred. This may be this Lawson 'Clancy,' and wife (probably Harriet) and Mary E. (probably daughter). Wife Mary or Mollie's surname came from only one source: death certificate of Joseph Thompson 1920 (informant T.C. Thompson) says he was son of Lewis Thompson of unknown place and Mollie Rateree of unknown place. Don't know how reliable this information is! ~ Rubyann Darnell
