Re: [NoblesCountyMN] Peter Thompson of Worthington
- Hi Pam,
Yes Peter Thompson is well Known in Worthington. The Nobles County
Historical Society has quite a bit of information on him. Just what
information would you like. In In the book "Illustrated History of Nobles
County" by Arthur P. Rose, written in 1908, It states In the whole of Nobles
county there is no man who enjoys a larger acquaintance than does the
gentlemen whose names heads this sketch. Coming to the county with the
vanguard of the colonists, he at once became identifies with its business,
social, religious and political life. In an unassuming and unpretentious
manner he became a leader. He has engaged in more business enterprises than
any other man in the county. During his residence of thirty six years in
the county he won the respect and esteem of all with whom he was thrown in
contact. There is a lot more in the article that could be sent if you would
like a copy. Also we have his obituary, his wife's and his daughters also.
We have allot of pictures of the family also. If you should want to contact
