You might want to check in Iowa and Lafayette counties. Thompson is one of my family names. The following family names are all connected to one another: Rowe, Skewes (Skues), Kitchen(s), Noble and Thompson . The Rowe family immigrated from, England in late 1840's/early 1850's. The Kitchen and Noble families have been around since prior to the Revolutionary War with one branch dating back to the Mayflower.
