Clara appears to be their daughter because the only other THOMPSONs in this index are Robert & Eveline's son, Gideon, and his wife, Nancy, plus a James (b. 1854) who appears to be Gideon & Nancy's son.  As this database is merely an indes, there may be more information in Ellsberry's book and/or on the tombstones.
