  4.   Ozro was born May 25th, 1839 in Elmira, Chemung Co., Ohio. His parents were Andrew Austin Thompson and Almira Moshier Thompson. He died at Burbank Hospital Dec 16, 1928. The following from his obit (typed unknown-found in Bible, California, by Ethel Thompson, Dr. Elmer Thompson’s widow:

    Mr. Thompson resided at the place of his birth for twelve years, when with the family he emigrated west, traveling by ox team, to Walworth County, Wisconsin. Two years later they moved to Juneau County, Wis. At this time the family was one of three in a radius of forty miles. The nearest town where " grist" could be ground was Portage, Wis. The trip required eight days by ox team. He resided in Juneau Co. until 1914, after which time he spent most of his time in Burbank, Calif.
    In 1860, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Garty Thompson, of Mauston. Eight children were born, six of whom survive the deceased, together with one foster daughter. They are Wilbur Thompson, Mauston, H. A. (Harvey Adelbert) Thompson, Elroy, Miss Ida E. Thompson, Hankow, China, J. B (John Burton) Thompson, Tulare, Calif., Mrs. Ethel Forbes, Tulare Calif., E. H. (Elmer Harmon) Thompson, Burbank Calif., and Mrs. Ben Trout, (adopted dau.) Burbank, Calif. Besides the immediate family the deceased is survived by one younger brother and sister, both of Wisconsin. There are also twenty four grandchildren and thirteen gr. grandchildren. The deceased was a member of the Seventh day Adventism Church, having been converted to their faith in 1860, and remaining a firm believer until the time of his death. Funeral services were conducted by Elder John Knox of Glendale (CA) at Fillbach's Undertaking Parlors at 3 PM Dec. 17, 1928, after which the remains will be sent east to the family home in Wis.
    The above obit from Calif. differs if some respects from the following on which appeared in Mauston Papers:
    Ozro Thompson Buried Friday in City Cemetery;. Ozro B. Thompson, whose death was announced last week, was born May 25, 1839 in Elmira, NY. While yet a child he removed with his parents to Harvard, Illinois and after a short residence there moved to Kenosha, Wis. A few year later the family moved to Columbus, this state, and in Apr. 1854, 72 years ago, they moved to Mauston, where he resided until the year 1920 when he went to Burbank, Calif.where he resided until the time of his death. In 1860 he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Garty who passed away in 1912. to this union were born 8 children: Wilbur E. of this city: Emma Thompson Anderson, deceased; H. A. Thompson of Elroy; Ida E. Thompson of Hankow, China; J. B. Thompson of Turare, Calif. ; Dr. E. H. Thompson of Burbank; Miss Gertrude Thompson, deceased; and Mrs. Ethel Thompson Forbes of Tulare, Calif together with a foster dau., Lucile Trout of Burbank. He has a sister Mrs. Augusta Fox of Mauston and a brother Western Thompson, of Minneapolis, Minn. Mr. Thompson was a man of profound conviction and strong moral character. In early years he united with the Seventh Day Adventist church in which communion he remained a worthy member thru life.

    Excerpts for yet another obit (unknown pub) The farm formerly owned by him is one of the finest locations in the county, is on the Mauston-Elroy Rd, and is now owned by Bert Stetler. For many years he was one of Juneau County's most successful farmers. It's also recorded in Juneau Co that Ozro purch. from Wm. Pierce 2 parcels of land Sec 21T16 for $300. on Oct 22, 1864. Also on Dec 9, 1863 Ozro purchased. 70 Ac. from his father. Witnessed by E. N. Leonard and C.R. Thompson( (Catherine)? A. Cowles was justice of peace. Recorded also, May1, 1858 Ozro purch. from father 40 Ac. for $400. A A originally had 160 Ac in 1853. Ozro sold for $350. 35 Ac. to David Bishee.
    The 1920 Fed Census shows him living in Grant, Lancaster Co, NE age 80. He is living with his daughter Emma and family. Probably was staying there for awhile before heading to California.
    Notes (1964) from Dorothy Thompson, dau. of Elmer T. indicate Ozro lived in Hancock Co., OH, before moving to Mauston about 1853. This could be in error.
    1910 Census shows Ozro Family living with 2 adopted children. Lucile and Ben. Photos from Dr. Elmer Thompsons in CA show pictures of them, and Hollis Thompson Forbes in his info indicates Ben married Lucile, and became a driver in CA for Elmer.
    Have pictures of Ozro and it's believed his wife in a car in Burbank also.
    That Ozro Thompson was successful, is evidenced by the fact that he was able to educate his daughters in Chicago, and Lincoln NE, and probably support the partially on their missions for the church to S. America and China in the early 1900's. In his dau. Emma's diary is states that her father suffered from eye disease in his later years, which was treated in NE. Ozro also furnished affidavits of support for friends and relatives seeking aid from governmental agencies. His House and barn on Hwy 82, (Sec ) in Lindina still stands in 2007,(owned by Carl Accando) built probaby in the 1870's . The smaller house next to it supposedly was moved there when Western Thompson moved to Minn with his family in 1902 following the death of his and Ozro's mother Almira. It was either her home or Westerns, moved from the original homesite from settlement days. It's thought that Ozro's son Wilbur and his famiy moved into the bigger house, and Ozro then occupied the smaller older one. Ozro also spent time in his later years visiting the farms of Wilbur and Walter Thompson in the Burbank area, as most of his children left the Mauston area for California, the most prominent being his son Elmer who founded the medical center there abt. 1908.
