DS, I have visited most of those sites that you have listed. Raven is correct researching your family history is addictive. I have spent hours and hours on the computer researching my family. Here is an interesting tidbit of information that I have found about my family. William Preston Thompson is my great great great great grandfather. Grundy County is in Missouri.

Before white men settled in Grundy County, it was occupied as a hunting ground by tribes of Sac, Sioux, and Pottawottomie Indians. No obtainable record or tradition exists of a permanent settlement being made until 1833, when General W. P. THOMPSON settled near the Grand River. Among the first settlers in the vicinity of the present site of Trenton were: James R. MERRILL, Samuel BENSON, John THRAILKILL, Levi MOORE, William COCHRAN, Jewitt NORRIS, John SCOTT, and Daniel DeVAUL, plus the PERRY, GRUBB, and METCALF families.
