2.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, not with any certainty (both parents are now deceased, so the children have scattered).  There is a Frank THOMPSON (æ 21, b. MO) boarding in Lassen Twp., Tehama Co., CA (p. 884), who may be our subject.  If so, both the age and birthplace are off; however, it is a virtual certainty that our subject was not the informant for this record, and the information for hired hands is often incorrect.
