      Thanks Stacey,
      I did email that website I had posted before for help and this was the

      ====If George Thompson is buried in Centenary it is an unmarked grave and
      in the Thompson plot area.

      ====I would have taken pics of all marked Thompson markers on that visit
      as one of my main NE Iowa lines is the Thompson's out of Harford.Co.MD. I
      was trying to find a connection to the NE Iowa and NE MO Thompson's for a
      long time so was/am always on the lookout for Thompson material. Plus the
      Thompson's were some of the very first white settlers in Pike and Ralls Co's.

      So as you can see I came up with nothing.:-(
      I have wondered if there might be a Library close by there that
      would have a record of his death. Maybe even as a newspaper
      listing.But its to far away for me to reach. Maybe if I could find
      someone there (even a Library) that would offer to help me.
      This means I would have to also hope that a Library close by
      would have a death listing (that a volunteer took the time to make)
      of people that died in the 1800's. My Library does for those years.
      The death listing would say something like this:George Thompson
      (after finding it listed under the T's for-or Thompson) died on month
      in 18?? and is posted in this local newspaper on that date.Then
      that person looking at a roll of newspaper (for that month and year)
      film would go to that dates listings.The obit should list a wife (if
      and all living siblings. Harrison (or Benjamin)would be a sibling and
      any others would be new info.Now if I could just find one volunteer
      that lived in that area to do all that for a weekend or two.What hope is
      there of that?Maybe if there was a genealogy group in that area?
      I will check out the link you posted maybe I could talk to someone
      else who knows something there.

      One way you could request information about this cemetery is to go to
      and if you know that he was buried there, you can create a memorial and
      request a photo.

      Good Luck!
