Charles Thompson - Maine > Mass

Looking for information on the parents, siblings of Charles (Charlie) Thompson, b. Cumberland county (Portland) ME about 1825.
Father: Charles? Thompson
Wife: Eliza (b. Albany, NY)
Married: Amherst, Hampshire, MA

Charlie was cook, gardener, janitor at Amherst College in the 1860's. He died either in Hampshire or Hampden county, MA.

His latest CENSUS appearance was in 1900 Hampshire county, living with wife Eliza. His earliest Census appearance was in 1860 in Hampshire county, Amherst, MA.
He was found in the 1900, 1880, 1870 and 1860 census of Amherst, Hampshire. Could not find him in any Census Records before 1860 or after 1900. He supposedly left Maine as a young teen (14-15). He could have been in the Boston area, out to sea (seaman), or rooming with a family that later moved to Amherst.

Part of Charlie's story was written by the daughter of one of his employers in the early 20th century, and featured in the local Amherst paper in 1982. [Don't have a current copy, however.]
, MA. Unable to find a death date - or burial information.

This is my [step] sister's family. Any help, suggestions appreciated.
Thanks!
