Story



Given the date of Robert and Elizabeth's marriage and the birth of their first child Andrew, it appears that their marriage was of necessity. There may be misinformation about the dates. The family was still living in San Francisco during the 1870 census and Andrew was list as being nine years old setting his birth at 1861.

According to the Death Notice for Robert Wilmer Thompson, Elizabeth's last child, "the Thompson Family resided on Cherry Street opposite Cherry Lane." An 1876 map of the City of Santa Rosa puts the family within a few blocks of the downtown plaza.

We find no stories about Elizabeth; however, there is the assumption that having eight children kept her busy in the home. Her mother, Mary West, was living with the family according to the 1880 census.
