Note: According to Progessive Men of The State of Montana, William was the fifth of eight children. So far only six have been located and verifiable.
Elihu served during the American Revolution in Capt. James Peck's company, Col Roger Enos' Connecticut regiment.
Through the import of this person Elihu's year of death was imported as "1783" in the ged.comm. However it was input as 1785 when this profile was adopted. While the exact date is not known, the only verifiable reference found, so far, is in the Lineage Book - National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which has the year of his death listed as 1783 and that he died in Burlington, Otsego, New York.

This person was created through the import of master 11_12.ged on 21 October 2010.
Thompson-28702 and Thompson-1175 appear to represent the same person because: These are exactly the same person, the only reason I created the 28702 profile was because the 1175 file didn't have all of the info in it and therefore didn't show up when I put in Elihu's DOB. I didn't discover the duplicate until I went to add his spouse Desire Palmer, Palmer-402.
