Hi Shari,

I was at the courthouse in Shell Lake the other day and was able to find some information on the Thompson family of Minong. I'm not sure what information you may already have, so some of this may be redundant for you.

The Thompson family is, indeed, buried in the Minong Greenwood Cemetery, including these names:

Cecelia "Tina" Mary - b. 15 Aug 1921 - d. 8 Mar 1982 - wife of Hiram, maiden name Johnson -- Death Record Vol. 22, pg 2

George Monroe - b. 2 Dec 1923 - d. 27 Feb 1983 - Wife's name was Elizabeth Chartier -- Death Record Vol. 22, pg 175

Hiram O. - b. 4 May 1916 - d. 26 Feb 1988 (no death record found in Washburn Co.)

Keith Allen - b. 17 Oct 1971 - d. 7 Dec 1991 - son of Norman "Smokey" Kenneth & Linda Marie (Tolene) Thompson -- Death Record Vol. 24, pg 537

Marian Elizabeth - b. 9 Apr 1921 - d. 23 Mar 1996 - wife of Melvin, daughter of George & Helen Marie (Burgraff) Kestel -- Death Record Vol. 26, pg 148

Melvin - b. 23 Mar 1929 - d. 18 Jul 1998 - married to Marian Elizabeth Kestel -- Death Record Vol. 27, pg 107

Norman "Smokey" Kenneth - b. 7 Jul 1927 - d. 20 Aug 1994 - Wife's name Linda Marie Tolene -- Death Record Vol. 25, pg 417

Thomas Miron - b. 17 Sep 1914 - d. 28 Nov 1987 (your father?) (no death record found on file in Washburn Co.)

Also a stone is in place at the same cemetery for Elizabeth, wife of George Monroe Thompson. There is no death date, so she may still be living.

Here is your Grandfather and Grandmother's death record information:

I hope this information will give you more leads and help you break through your brick wall. Good luck with your research.
