Robert Thompson was born June 4, 1819 at Drumbad, Fermanagh, Ireland. Robert came to Newfoundland in 1834, by boat with his parents & 10 brothers & sisters. The trip took 13 weeks. His father (name unknown) died from cholera & was buried at sea. The youngest child also died & its mother carried it for 3 days, telling everyone that it was better & sleeping, so it could be buried on land. The only other brother known was Jim who had 2 daughters; Mary & Jane Blacklock. Robert married Margaret Ferguson. Margaret was born in Peterboro Ontario, Canada & died July 1910 at mapleton, ND. They had 13 children. These are my deceased Mother's ancesters. My mother was born Edna Marie Thompson, on July 5, 1924 & died June 4, 1997. She is the daughter of John Thompson & Mary Allardice.
I hope this is helpful information in my search for my Irish ancestry. Thank you, Frances Wolfe
