Charles Thompson - Maine > Mass
Looking for information on the parents, siblings of Charles (Charlie) Thompson, b. Cumberland county (Portland) ME about 1825.
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.
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.]
This is my [step] sister's family. Any help, suggestions appreciated.
