Surnames: Thompson,Blackmore
I like information from anyone whose ancestors rode the orphan train to Eldorado Springs, Missouri. It would have been about 1865-1870. I'm also searching for a Doctor Thompson who was living in Eldorado Springs, Missouri about that time. He adopted three small children whom were siblings. Family stories are, that Doctor Thompson was a vetinarian or a pharmacist. He gave his surname to the children and one of the children he adopted was named William H Thompson,b: about 1860? Wife may have been named Della. I believe the family eventually moved to Kansas. His son was William Benjamim'Bennie' Thompson,b: 1909-1810, married to Faye Blackmore, b: in Okla. Their son, Lawrence Roy Thompson,b:1939 in Okla.
